I am not offended or bothered by them... just thought it rather counterproductive... Every page I went to had a huge "Free super-sized Sub" Ad from Quizno's across the top, and another Ad for "Texas-sized Cupcakes" on the right.... NOT helpful.. But as was stated earlier by several people- these temptations are EVERYWHERE... might as well try to learn to deal with them here, instead of at the Mall!!
If the pop-ups really bug you-- do what I do... use the site with the sound off!!
