Yes I am too Bill , I have Adblock Plus installed but it seems to freeze my input if I enable it. It use to work fine so I’m guessing Martin found a way to counter it’s effectiveness.

The only pop up ads I get are the ones on the left hand side of the page, and they mainly seem to show
items that I have googled. I ignore them as the price of have a free woodworkers site.

It might be your computer. You may have clicked something, or downloaded something and it installed a spam-machine. I am logged in now with Opera and I’ve got one ad on the right as I type this, one way up top. Nothing on any other part of the page and no inline ads. It’s not obnoxious at all.
(EDIT: And when I’m just on a page reading a thread, there is only one ad – on the right. Nothing on top/bottom.)
On the other hand, I tried it in firefox, not signed in, and the ads are top/bottom/right, every other post in a thread, as well as the inline ones where they highlight a word in someone’s post and link to an ad.

I use Adblock with Google Chrome (on a Windows 7 machine) and have zero pop-ups. Sorry, Martin.

JavaScript recently updated so if you’re using an internal pop-up blocker and no extension it sounds like it has not responded to those updates yet. Internal blockers don’t kill everything anyway. I stopped using FF for Chrome a while back and Chrome by itself does an excellent job with this stuff, but adding AdBlock to Chrome kills just about every annoyance problem on the planet.
