POP up madness

Really Tom? what the heck is up with the HP toner pop up every time you switch a page?

1 time when arriving at your site...ok. Every page click...Hell no.

I've been viewing TH everyday for as long as i can remember and i took the time to register today to say WTH?

If it doesnt stop i'll be going elsewhere.

  1. I've sent along the complaint to our ad folks. I don't believe it should be doing the thing that you are describing. Should be a one-time thing as usual.
  2. It's happening to me right now. I've got IE's popup stopper enabled and set to the highest security setting. Everytime I switch pages the ad comes up. When I go back to a previous page it pops up. This is amateurish and insulting.
  3. I get the same thing too... some days it's just once every time I open a new browser window, but some days I get it every time I open a new link in a new tab... I guess there just wasn't enough revenue with the ads across the top, down both sides, in the middle of all the articles, and about every 5 words in the regular text if you accidentally hover your mouse over something...

    Crap. I have seen it all now. These HP toner ads are the most invasive I have ever seen. I have been coming to Toms for years now and don't want to go anywhere else. How do I block these things!?
  5. Download Firefox and grab AdBlockPlus ad on (AdBlockPlus is also available for Chrome).
  6. 23 July and no change in the HP ads - it looks like the 'ad folks' are ignoring you jpishgar.

    So how do I block these things. At work. Where I have to use IE. Please!
  7. The HP ad in question should only be showing a maximum of once per user... are you seeing it more than that?
