    Just an observation. I hate these freaking pop-ups.

    Very, very annoying. Unfortunately, it takes ads like these to keep a site like Basenotes up and running.

    Obnoxious expanding ads . . . there's got to be a better way.

    I use firefox with dozens of protective add-ons. I donīt see a trace of advertisements anywhere. I recommend ad block plus for the beginner.

    Just use Ad Block Plus for Firefox or Chrome and the ads disappear. Simple as that.

    Shouldn't we just click on the ads to keep the funds coming?

    My ad block extension blocks that. Its not only a pop up but a drop down as well. If you connection is not good, its even more of a problem. You would be surprised just how much an ad like that brings in I use Chrome Chuck and it works like a charm, I do, however see that PP ads on mobile.

    Yeah, it seems to far more of a pain on iDevices in that it appears right under your finger before you attempt to click a link. It's quite smart in this sense, but renders the mobile version of the site somewhat bollocks.

    yes, really interferes with the iPad functionality. Not exactly up to current web standards.

    iPhones too. Basically, when you try to enter a forum it just replays the ad again and again and you can never enter.

    I use "Adblock" so I've never even seen the ads you guys are talking about! I strongly suggest it, I think it works on most browsers and even cuts out those annoying ads at the beginning of youtube videos.

    The ad ruins by ability to even use Basenotes on my tablet.

    Yes, the IN YOUR FACE pop ups are sad, insulting and off putting. I try to not ever buy anything advertized in this manner. The guy that owns the site must be getting desperate to resort this.

    Download the Mercury browser. Ad-block has made it to where I don't have to deal with that ridiculous ad.

    Have yet to have problems with ads and pop-ups, on both my Macbook pro, iPhone and iPad... Perhaps they are IP address targeted, and do not appear in Denmark? (I use Chrome on my Macbook pro and Safari on the iDevices)

    My router runs a piece of ad-block software. No pesky ads on any device/PC on my network.

    If there are any obnoxious ads on the website. Please email support@basenotes.net with screenshots if possible.

    Any ads that interfere with functionality just don't need to be here.

    Agreed about it's annoyance, especially when viewing on my mobile phone. However, it's not nearly as bad as some other major sites (e.g. CNN.com and LATimes.com); where the whole site's theme is that of the advertisement. It's not like that right now, but they do it every once in a while. ESPN.com isn't so great either, their auto-expand ads are one of the worst.
