this is so trivial i have to apologize for even starting a thread about it. great board. best i've found in years. nice folks --- especially fun population of critters getting a bit grey in the gills. helps keep the level of interplay a little more intelligent, dignified and humorous than the thrash and bash fests and dumbass infantile remarks you see in most places on the web nowadays. thanks to the folks that run it and play in the pen. the problem is that ads are opening up on me without clicking on anything which is really annoying when i'm reading a thread or typing a response. anybody know why this is happening and what to do about it?
