They are doing my head in and I don't get them.
I won't be on tomorrow. I have a Parish Council meeting.

Good evening eveyone.
Volty you are quite right. I am not a driver so I don't need motor insurance, but if I was there would be no way on this planet that I would use Go Compere, I hate and detest that Opera singing Mongerel. Neither would I use 118 118.

Quite agree with you SB, but not sure about your description of him as a mongrel, as he is definitely a thoroughbred pratt (though I admit i think the same of most opera singers)

Xobor gave me this reply....

"Hello Voltman,

we are using different kinds of advertisement including pop-ups. The advertising is always changing, as our advertisers change their advertising regulary.

Regards, Alice"

My (final) reply....

Thanks Alice.

That does seem to indicate that the members concerned probably do not have Adware infections.
"Full screen" pop ups seem to be a bit much though, one member has trouble taking them down, perhaps the exit buttons are not visible enough.

regards
Voltman



I suggest anyone still afflicted by these pop-ups should try any and all of the measures I mentioned recently.
These include:
Set your browser to block Pop-Ups
Set your browser not to accept third party cookies.
Delete browsing history
Delete suspect and Xobor related cookies
Delete all cookies

Probably disguised by the advertiser Mike, or appears after a short delay, Xobor write the code and I can only hope they wouldn't be so stupid as to alienate all the free forums.
It was your deletion of a cookie that interested me, do you happen to remember the name of said cookie?

I think you misunderstood me Volty, /they started appearing (perhaps by chance), when I clocked on the site after I had deleted all cookies, which meant i did not automatically log on. after I had logged on then the pop up did not appear.

OK Mike, thanks for that, I'll have to have a bit of a think about what that suggests.
It's relevant because of the three members to report seeing these adverts, so far, you are the only one to have gotten rid of them.
