OT- Annoying Ads

Is anyone else getting a stupid pop up at the bottom of their pg.org page? I'm going crazy and can't get rid of it! I click close but every time I open up a new thread it's there again.

Hi ladies,

Missy posted an announcement about it late last night, you can read it here: http://www.pregnancy.org/bulletinboards/announcement.php?f=734&a=335

If you have any feedback about it (ie how annoying it is, how much you hate it, any issues it is causing on your phone/computer/etc, etc. ;)) PLEASE feel free to drop her (or me and I can forward to her) a note either via email or pm so it can be passed on.

Thanks for your patience!

OMG I thought I was the only one! I'm going to post this in December as well (since I'm kind of on the fence with my due date) so that we can get the girls in there to respond as well!

Gaaah I hate this popup too, it's the worst! The laptop I use is one of those minis, so the dang ad takes up like 1/6th of the bottom of the screen! I'm pm-ing Missy.

Just thought I'd share a tip one of the mods gave. Hopefully it works for at least some of you.

Tools, at top of internet browser page
Internet options, at bottom of list
Security, second tab on top
Restricted sites, last logo on settings
Sites, click on tab
And add http://pshared.5min.com
It will stop the ad pop up and keep it away
Hopefully it works for you and helps with the frustration
