Generally it's not a good idea to mention that when you're posting on a site that specifically prohibits ad suppression software.

I notice that they have the one ad that "raises eyebrows" right smack dab in the middle of that parody. Jeff, do you think that the "boob" add is appropriate for the "family friendly" atmosphere that we try to have around here? I mean I like boobs just as much as the next guy, but I wouldn't want my young boy seeing images like that unless he's watching Stack on FOX. ;)

I use Microsoft Windows XP with service pack 2 which blocks pop-ups. Am I in violation if I come to this site because of that?

This is what I wanna know.....

If there are ZERO ads on rcdb.com which uses significantly more bandwidth, why do you people continually put money in Jeff's pocket?

Actually, Duane has introduced Google text ads to the site to help with the bandwidth costs.

Good question. I guess I hadn't thought about that.

See you over at the RCDB forums. Maybe we can meet up at DataBase Con!

There's a fine line here between what does happen and what should happen. Sure this site is exteremely annoying with its numerous pop-up ads but if you pay for it it goes away. It also goes away if one chooses to use pop-up and ad-blocking software. Sure, Jeff may probit those with said software from visiting the site, but his threats are not going to stop it from happening. He sometimes gets whiny about paying for all the bandwidth and so on, and some people are willing to pay, some are willing to click on the ads which is great. Some just view the site, block the ads and contribute nothing towards the site, and that's ok, too. Jeff puts this site online, and allows the non-paying public to view it...if it was such a big deal to him, he would only allow paying members to view the site.

Wait a second? So if I am using the DEFAULT BROWSER thats ships with my operating system, I am violating the terms of service for this site? Jeff, while I really respect you, and the work you have done to create and maintain this site, I do have a problem with that part of the terms of service. If I cannot visit your site using Safari, which blocks pop-up advertisements, I am afraid I will be unable to visit your site at all.

I am sorry, but can you please clarify this policy? I have no problem with banner ads, as they help pay the bills. I do have a problem with pop-ups and pop-unders, and refuse to buy products and services advertised in such a manner. In other words, companies like Vonage (whose pop-under ads have really annoyed me) will not be getting my business, even if they save me money! If I am not allowed to use my default browser, which ships with my OS, or if I have to change settings just to view this site, I am afraid I will not be able to post here.

Please clarify the policy for me, as I like this site, and would like to continue to be a member of this community.

I visit this site often, and I think it beats the hell out the other sites out there. RRC is a disaster, and the other sites are so damn noisy it's hard to find any useful information.

Sure, there are some people here who like to "hear" themselves talk, but it's well worth a lousy 20 bucks a year to have a much cleaner way to keep informed.

People, while it may be against the rules to use a pop-up blocker while browsing this site, it's simply a formality of the TOS. There is really nothing Jeff can do about it...

UNLESS!...

You guys keep getting on Jeffs nerves by starting these stupid threads. Eventually he is going to get fed up and may even make it so that you can't view the site at all w/o being a member. Right now, do you know what I do when a pop-up comes up?

I close it.

The Pop-up blocker in Safari is very easy to turn on and off. You have a choice. It's not like you have to go into a prompt and edit a config.sys file or something.

"Command key" + K

Make it a great day! :)

When your browser blocks another popup, a bar should show up across the top of the window, click on it and set it to allow popups from this site.

Simple as that :).

I grow really tired of having this conversation.

If you like the site, join the club or put up with the ads. If you don't like the site, go the hell away and bother someone else.
