Blue, good to know the emode thing was unintentional. It seemed a bit odd.
Lately I have had two pop-ups appear simultaneously when I first hit the site. It had only been one before (as I would expect). I'll disable the pop-up stopper and ID the ads for the next time I visit.
I am also getting pop-ups each time I click an internal link (such as to view this discussion) but I am assuming that is intentional.
As I said, I'm not complaining or threatening to "boycott" or some such nonsense. I enjoy the site but the ad overload is getting to be a bit much, hence my finally breaking down and using a pop-up stopper. It's fine now, but blocking the ads really defeats the purpose, doesn't it? If the ads were less intrusive, I might actually look at them instead of instinctively trying to shut them down.
