    I love this site and all, and don't mind a few banner ads, but what's with these popunder ads? What is this, 2004?

    Popunders shouldn't be happening. Let me research this and see if that setting needs to be disabled again.

    I keep getting lots of them too and it seems like it freezes the site for me for 2-3 seconds while something is loading.

    I hate to say it Ian but this site is worse then most porn sites when it comes to virus attacks and spyware!

    We haven't had any virus reports or spyware issues in quite a while - did you experience an issue today?? I haven't heard from anyone on this and obviously want to know if something is up.

    I just got a little thing that popped up from safecount.net encouraging me to take a survey and make $1000, or something like that.

    it was one of those little ones that block a portion of the screen's text and scroll up and down to maintain position as you scroll the page , so you have to close them out to read.
