GOODBYE.... I'm not here for the pop-ups

Cya VTXOA...
I'm tired of fighting the ads and pop-ups. I have 2 ad-blockers and all sorts of settings to prevent them.
I come here now, and I get ads playing in the background that you CANNOT shut off. Built into the ad is a link that if you hit the "stop" button... it redirects you to their page... just so they can register clicks. F**K That!

I will no longer support this site in any way (I've paid b4 the switch).
Mods- please remove my profile and delete any information about me.

There have been hundreds of complaints the last few months, enough is enough.... and I don't see any hint it will improve.

Never paid here. VTXCafe was the place you paid.
They own both.

One adblocker and logged in it is like it was 5 years ago.

I don't see ANY pop-ups! Using Chrome with Adblock.
Maybe the OP's computer has been compromised.
Buh-bye.

AdBlock Plus works and so does uBlock. No popups. It can be a bit tougher on iOS devices but there are adblocking browsers available there that work too.

Just switched, this week, to Firefox & Adblock Plus for the same reason & they are gone now!

I run Windows 10 on a laptop with Firefox browser. I have two browser add-ons, Bluhell Firewall which stops pop ups, redirects, and other malware and Ghostery which stops trackers from tracking you. Along with my anti-virus software, which detects anything that may happen to get through, I do not have any issues whatsoever!

I highly recommend Bluhell Firewall. It does not slow Firefox down one bit.

Hey guys,

Regarding these pop ups, if you can provide an image of the ad as well as the full URL of the ad, we can get them removed.
This is a known issue and we are working towards removing the ads.

I'm sorry for the frustration this may have caused.

Your patience is extremely appreciated.

Richard.

I run Windows 10 on IE and never see any pop ups! One time when I was not logged on I saw some ads but that was it.
