Computer pop ups

On the below of the forum does that annoy anyone how you here that clicking sound and its a stupid pop up where you have to take out papparazzi or something. And also that other one with the emoticons saying "wah wah" in the most annoying voice over and over. Can someone take these out. Really annoying. Thanks lol.

The site needs those ads, there not pop-ups. I think they help keep the site running and keep it free, if I'm not mistaking. Just turn the volume off.

Well what if your listening to music or viewing a link such as spoilers to upcoming fights and MMA videos. Those ads don't keep the site running. If you want ads make them MMA ads not some crap like emoticons and papparazzi. Thanks.

Invest in some decent security software that comes with an 'Ad Blocker' and 'Popup Blocker' in the program and that should take care of the annoying ads. Though, sometimes it can mess with viewing a certain web page, all depends on how everything is coded. It's worth a shot though if you're that annoyed with it. I used to get the stupid bug zapper one all the time with a constant bzzz'ing really loud. I just 'killed' the bug, it opened a pop up, I just closed the pop up and the damn thing shut up. There are ways around them, just use one.

Well its sort of not a pop up but rather something below the layout of this site you notice something saying "emoticon" and it always talks. I have a pop up blocker already.

yes it is called an add.. free sites usually have them so the hosting company makes money so they can offer free sites.. unless we all want to pay subscriptions to the site... we have to deal with ads

There are security programs that will even block ads on pages too. Ours does that Don I just have that function turned off because it messes with Pogo. There's a difference between popups and ads. Ads are coded directly into a webpage. Popups do just that, pop up in a different window. Get a program with both the ad blocker and popup blocker. I already said that.
