    Ads, okay. Roll over pop ups NO!!! Please do us all a favor and get rid of the one for adhesive wall hangers and don't sign up for any new ones. Even with my pop-up blocker set to stop ALL on CafePharma, that sneaky little sucker gets trhough WAY to often as I am scrolling down.

    Do the ads truly pop-up, or just expand when you roll over them? Any ad networks we use are set so that true pop-ups or pop-unders should not occur. However, we do allow some ads that will expand if you roll-over them. This is a pretty standard ad modality on the Internet, including other business-related sites such as Forbes, etc.

    If you see the ad again, please either let me know what the ad links to, or at the very least the exact product name that is advertised. I should then be able to investigate and see if it is indeed a pop-up, and then disable it.

    Thank you,

    Command products from 3M. It was on the page directly underneath your response and popped up twice before I could even get to your message. Yes, it does indeed expand, and at the least provocation. Have to make a conscious effort to avoid going near the damn thing. Cant just scroll down , etc. Major pain. Thanks for trying to keep these nuisances off the site.

    IT is getting worse. Clicking the 'x' to close the ad instead freezes it on the screen and must shut down, close out of CP and start to get rid of it.

    Absolutely ridiculous that they allow this roll over to obscure the site for weeks now.
