I notice that this is not the first thread on the adverts or the first thread on the clicking away from the text box, or even the first thread on the tab key problem, but I feel that it really has became a serious problem and as such needs an open dialog. (1)
I use two computers in my time on DiS - One of my own, which I have Firefox installed and Adblocker to block pop up adverts. I also post in Work, and I have no such luxury having to deal with vanilla IE6.0 (2). This means that while in my normal environment I don't see the adverts or any of the refreshing, I do experience it at a high level when I in work.
The problem is this; I come to this site to read and discuss, amongst (3) other things music, and funnily enough, I listen to music when I am here in the back ground. I can't be doing with an intrusive advert that starts to play music over my playlist, forcing me to listen to who ever is paying the electricity bills. It is annoying. I understand that there is a "Rollover Advert" and that is fine by me, but this Santogold advert is taking the piss out of Micheal.
Secondly, (4) the refreshing problem is something that I can't believe still exists. I am typing this message, and every time you see (x) with a number, that is 1 time the cursor has jumped away from writing the thread.
I would like to know if you guys (5) who are running the site know of the problems and are ignoring them, know of the problems but can't do anything about them, or at least, tell us that there is a fix on the way.
Not only is it pissing me off, I am sure the advertising clients won't be too happy that their adverts are being (6) represented by disappointment and hate due to technical difficulties.
PS. 6 fucking times is a new record!
