Admins: Fear.com ads

OK, I know the folks from the Fear.com movie are paying to have their ads here and I respect that... but it's really getting annoying. Every time I come to this site (which is often) I get a pop up window.. that's fine.. but why do you have to have an even more annoying and loud second window pop up in the middle of my browser so that I can't even see what's going on without x'ing out of it?

Stop the insanity!

I hear ya. I've been talking to my supervisor at work and then all of a sudden I hear, "do you like to watch". Not only does that force an explaination (what would you think it was ), but it tells them the truth about how much I'm slacking, since obviously the forum isn't the screen that I have up at that moment. Kind of funny...

The pop up one is bad enough, but the flash one that comes up like a blob on my screen is the spawn of the devil. I know the site gets paid to put these on, but geez, it's damned annoying.

Just mute the volume of your PC, like I do.

Yeah it is really annoying. I am afraid to go to the forum when I am at school or home. It looks like you are looking at porn.

I know that the traffic in the "Feeback" forum is pretty heavy and it's hard to follow all the threads, but there is another discussion on this topic (including posts from Geoffrey Kleinman, the founder of DVDTalk)

It's subject is FearDotCom Pop-Ups and is right here

Wow, those sound annoying. Yet another reason I'm glad I'm using Mozilla instead of IE or something else that doesn't include pop-up control in the preferences.
