You know what's annoying?

You know, this Honda advertising that keeps popping up is seriously making me consider avoiding HuntingPA. Every time I go to do something in the forum it pops up, taking up half the screen and starting to play a video. It is way over the top and very obtrusive. When a person cannot navigate a hunting forum what is the sense of having the forum???

Re: You know what's annoying?

It's been discussed in the Site Suggestions for some time prior. Probably where this should be ? And yes, it's annoying, but something tells me HPA is making Ad money off of it, so I wouldn't expect it to disappear.

Not sure which browser you're using, but you can install an ad blocker, (like https://adblockplus.org/) and you won't see those annoying ads.

Adblock plus is the best thing going. I dont see adds on any sites it is outstanding.

U use the Google Chrome browser and I've never seen it.

An archer shoots his targets as far as he can. A bowhunter shoots his target as close as possible.

Just disable pop-ups in your browser.

I use google chrome and it still pops up on me.

I understand that any site needs advertising to pay the bills. The problem with the honda ad is that it triggers without you clicking on it, covers 80% of my screen and smoetimes takes more than one try to close it.

I'll never stop signing on here but that ad is particularly annoying
