Often same advert is repeated many times.

As long as you don't get more than 2 popup / 12 hours (even if its the same everyday) its normal.

I haven't had a pop-up here for months.

Something you did or something I did?

Popup blocker on your computer is stopping them.

Other forums I subscribe to manage without any pop-ups so why can't ST&T manage without them? It's very annoying. Just as well I don't use ST&T very much. I just logged in to it 3 minutes ago and was soon reminded why I stopped using it -- 3 pop-ups and one pop-under -- bah!

No website owner likes to use advertisements, but its required to pay the bills.

Limit is still the same - 2 / 12 hours. Almost always when people get more, its due to popup blocker causing conflict.

Regarding websites using only banners; owner might be using his personal money to pay the bills.

Websites also need to maintain money enough to sustain for next 6 to 12 months when advertisement rates drop by 40-60%! (like in the current economic depression).

I've been using google blocker and the built in IE blocker for years, I used to see them all the time, but not over the last few months, and I haven't changed a thing.

Cheers Dave, don't mind if I do.

I got email asking why I didn't visit more often. This is why. I will not tolerate popup ads.
