Thanks for the tip. I installed the Adblock Plus for Opera and gone is that annoying pop-up ad!

I suggest Max' bosses do a good read of the Adblock Plus web-site

@Max: "  It's got so I don't even notice it -- I just click "Skip" without looking"

The first thing I got before I could read your reply was an ad :)

Luckily I can opt-out and decide not to come back, unless I have to.

Somebody suggested using an ad-blocker. Now I don't mind seeing ads next to the 'content of interest' and sometimes they are worth clicking. But this 'interjecting' of the ad that you have to click out of are a violation of marketing rules: Don't upset the customer. Now this customer is pissed off :) I have seen this 'Linear Technology' ad about 20 (twenty!) times today and my subconsious (evil) mind starts blaming them as well :) 

As soon as I click 'Post' I will get served one more :)

Again nothing personal, but unfortunately you are the one in the trenches.

Have you looked at the AdBlock Plus plugin for FireFox & Chromium? It eliminates the force-feeding of the 20 second ad, and many other annoyances.

@Josyb: What are you (your bosses) thinking?

   Don't blame me -- I'm with you on this one.

   It's got so I don't even notice it -- I just click "Skip" without looking

   But I will pass on your comments to those who stride the corridors of power.

 

As you Anglicans say: Life's too short.

    I sometimes say something else if I do notice the ads :-)

@Max:

Another serious issue: everytime I click on a link I get force-fed an advertisement. Every click! You can click it away or wait for 20 seconds. I can live with an ad now and then, and they may even be useful, but not every click. What are you (your bosses) thinking?

As you Anglicans say: Life's too short.

@Max: "Have I ever let you down before?"

That's a dangerous question! :)

Luckily I did't address my vow to you personally, so I can stay silent.

@Josyb: I make a vow to only resume posting if the APP-content gets salvaged.

Have I ever let you down before?

@William: Hoping to also see all the APP content transfered over.

Me too -- I just set the ball rolling on that...
