Exclamation SERIOUSLY. LOSE THE POP UP ADS.

I love this site. I appreciate and respect the ad revenue that keeps it going. But dude....come on.....I can't hover my mouse over articles without a $#%&! ad popup completely blocking the article I am reading!!! It happens constantly!

I'm not even talking about the auto-text encoded ones either. Those you can avoid. It's the banner ones that seemingly come from nowhere from the top of the screen to cover 50% of the web site!

I mean how is that effective? Block your own content for the sake of ads? It's just bad business sense.

I use a certain browser with a certain add-on and have no problems looking at this site, both totally free. I get no pop-ups or anything.
For NVN's best interest, I won't advocate it though.
