wow i make a simple comment and i come back to see two pages of it, hah, neat...

well actually In a way I do have my speakers on most of the time since i always have music playing when im on it. and true true, im not gonna lower or turn of my speakers due to a stupid banner, well giz cant wait to see these "surprises" you're talking about. but yeah. i guess in the meantime ill have to just not pay attention to them, i mean you gotta have em, so we gotta deal with them. now if youll excuse me, im eating, and im out of soda.

Go to http://www.kazaalite.com and download the hosts file on the site. Then copy that and the banners are gone.

I don't know what the hell you guys are talking about! :p I get down to those beats in the worst way. I don't even X out of those windows .. just let em sit in the background cuz I dig the music ... if you'd call it that.

We get enough users that click them to generate about $300 a year, after the new design (which parts are waiting on BP) we should be able to configure it so that advertising.com can go fuck themselves .

I saw the add when I was at his house and yes it's annoying even for me who wasn't using the computer at the time. So he's not blowing smoke out of his ass. Okie dokie. Bye.

Yeah the host file thing is awesome.

BlackSpider- No offense, but I think you are a fucking idiot. If people have their speakers on then usually it is for a reason. And I am guessing he listens to music most of the time, or enjoys the sounds and background music of websites and video. You aren't making any points at all. Advertising is annoying as hell, and audio advertisements cross the line. You do not just accept shit like this and say you can close popups. If I email you every day, you could just delete them. Or, you could block me. But it only takes a second to delete them.

Your point that UGN Security has to advertise is beside the point. I might be wrong, but I am pretty sure Advertising.com isn't giving gizmo any more money for those fucking talking banners. And even so, that is still over the line.

The hosts file thing helps incredibly. Also, if you get alot of popups at the sites you go to, I suggest a pop up killer, PUK 4 was ok, but I have heard there are better ones.

Ignoring a problem does not make it go away. Solving the problem does.

Edit: added
After posting I saw there was a second page. He does listen to music. Oh and as suspected, advertising.com is another way of saying "assholes."
