Default Evil banner ad

not happy with the current NCL banner that keeps stealing my web page. I try to keep my mouse homed to the left to avoid it but have already been redirected a half a dozen times.

I use an add-in with my browser that blocks banner adds. I actually makes pages load a little quicker. It is called adblock and I think they have it for all browsers, I use chrome. You can google it if your interested. It is free.

I don't know if it's the same thing the others are talking about but I keep getting a blank page pop up with a small block about 4 " X4 " in the upper left corner of the page asking for a quick survey re / NCL. Very annoying as it takes over whatever I'm doing and I have to close out the website, re-open and start all over-- Is this the same thing you other folks are talking about?
There's no way to time or determine when it will do it--maybe 5 times in a couple of minutes--maybe not once in 20 minutes -- lucky to get this typed before it did it again.

As soon as I posted the first message it did it again and I had to close out, re-open and then post this. Once it takes over, there's no way I can do anything except close out the Website and re-open it.

Ron... what you are talking about has nothing to do with the banner ads. It's a message board glitch that popped up after "the maintenance" done the other night.

UGH! They have been notified.

Kuki, thank you for taking the time to explain--When I saw the post about the maintenance, I thought that might have something to do with it--was hoping so anyway.
Thanks again.
