    WHAT THE FEK is this IE Advert doing fake pinning.

    This is really pissing me off about adverts now.

    I would like to add that it stops you from clicking on ANYTHING on the site until it's finished faffing about or until you click the X.

    FFS :/

    AdBlock. It's the only way they'll learn, it seems.

    This one is ridiculous! I can't click on anything on the page unless I click on the x or wait until the animation is done. Considering that this plays every time a page loads I gets very frustrating very quickly :grr:

    Unskippable animated IE9 ad on every page load. Can't say i'm a huge fan of that. Tbh i might just stop whitelisting bt in adblock.

    Come on get rid of this intrusive advert for IE9.


    You cant do jack until it stops. Even the 'x' for closing the add doesnt work for me at times.


    I guess from now on its the big red x in the top right corner each time I visit and get this crap.

    I can put up with the adverts, but this Flash page every time I load a page that stops me selecting any links for about 3 seconds is nothing better than ****. This is the first time I've felt the need to post here I think, it's completely user-unfriendly.

    Argh! Back to adblock, every single page I hit this bloody IE 9 advert pops up. I wouldn't mind but as others have said I can't click anything on the page till I close the advert. Also I am on a Mac so IE 9 isn't going to be much good :hehe:

    I do not mind that IE 9 advert that much. I use Chrome and can click whereever I like.

    Strange, it stops me from clicking for at least a few seconds on Chrome on both PC and Mac.

    The IE one is exceptionally annoying, cant click anywhere whilst its up :<

    Is it irony that I dont use IE as its ****, and im less likely to use it because they cant even be arsed to make a decent advert? Prob not, but heh... adblock you say? :)

    Does the ad show if using IE9? :D

    No issues here using the stock FroYo browser.

    Just disabled ADBlock on here. IE9 pop up right away. Whilst it's a good feature they've got, what isn't is making it impossible for me to click links (in Chrome), so I furiously click until it happens. Ad Block is turned on again now.

    Top right click on Tools, Cursor on safety, click on Tracking Protection, a box will come up click on "Get a Tracking List Online" download the two Fan Boy one's from list.
    You now have the same list that you get from adblocker in Crome

    Noticed that ie9 comercial on the bottom to, it stops all other clicking for awhile and it pops up on every page on the forum for me now, slightly anoying as I dont have full controll of my computer at work, so I cant install addons like adblocker without going through a beurocracy hell :p
