    I have come across an ad MANY times on this site in which looks like a Windows error message that says "Click 2 Claim". It is EXTREMELY big and plays a WIndows alert message sound over and over again. And I'm in Leopard so that makes everything wores (Windows error message, Windows alert sound).

    There is nothing bgizzle or the mods can do. Bgizzle's ad company isn't watching over there ads.

    Firefox with adblock plus means no ads here, ever with no pop-ups.

    There is no way I would visit a site more than once if it has annoying flashing ads or pop ups that I can't block, life is too short

    Probably from all the Windows users on the site, thinking they could use "Anti-Virus for Windows"
