Must be something on your end, R7. I don't have an ad blocker, and I have seen ads on the board forever. They've always been there.

No, since I'm running on Win 7 (or OSX Leopard on my laptop and it's the same ads).

WHY THE FUCK WOULD WIN7 HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT?!?!?! Operating systems are totally different from ads!

I run Linux and I still had them before Adblock.

How bout you take a chill pill there thunder. You been screaming quite a bit lately and I'm not sure what the issue is. Not everyone is as computer literate as you may be. If you can't be relevant and decent with your posts, keep them to yourself. It's common forum etiquette.

The only ads that should be appearing are on the banner at the top of the page.

If you are getting pop-ups, that's something completely new that I wasn't aware of - and I have the pop-up blocker turned off for this site.

I'd also like to add that if you are receiving pop-up style adds, you may want to run a spyware/malware program to see if that is what is causing them.

As capcom mentioned, the only ad is the one at the top of the page (which has always been there for me).

If anythings going on, don't take it out on him.
