Since I put in the new ad agency a few days ago, we've been averaging about $5.50 a day. That includes the forums, the Digital Passion site, and 100-Poems.com (the main site will be changed within the next few days to an agency that is more aggressive than we have in here, but substantially less aggressive than what has been on netpoets.com in the past). No, LR, $5.50 a day doesn't exactly go a long way. But even a little way, especially when the inconvenience is being shared by everyone, is better than nothing.
There should be no popups. So, yea, I guess you do need so say more.
Yesterday morning, in the forums, I was prompted to download a spy-ware program. Angered, I logged into the ad agency, ready to cut off the offending advertiser at the knees. Unfortunately, I had already closed the prompt window and could find no ad that looked like what I had seen. Had I been less precipitous, I might have had better luck. I'm learning that when an advertiser breaks the rules I've imposed on them, they don't make it obvious. They try to hide.
So any information someone can give me on any popup would help me track down who is doing it. In Internet Explorer, if you right-click on the popup screen and call up the Properties, it should include an URL. That, and any text or company names from the ad itself, will help me get them turned off.
