    WS Lounge is the winner!

    Thanks to WS and Fugoo I finally was forced to employ a ad popup blocker, after all these many long years; first one that easily went right past my tolerance level where none had gone before. Now I won't see any ads, popup or not; I think the industry needs a lesson on how to advertize, not annoy-ize.

    I find The Lounge looks weird when I use another browser / computer. Lots of ads I don't normally see really makes the content less obvious - I suppose that is the idea.

    Well the particular straw that broke this camel's back was every time my cursor traveled over the banner ad on the way to Quick Links, up came the popup...every time!

    Maybe I'm missing something here but I have never had any pop-ups on this site.

    And I rarely get them on other sites I visit.

    I'm using IE 11 and the pop-up blocker set to medium..

    Yeah, that speaker ad is freaking annoying, it wouldn't be so bad except for the racket it creates when it's going off.
    I've never used a pop up block before on any site. I might end up having to consider it if this keeps up.
