    Default I'm ok with ads and all but....

    seeing a spinning Samsung Epic 4G ad in my face every time I click a hyperlink is starting to annoy me.

    It's EVERY click and it's the same EXACT ad. Not even a variation.

    Yikes, I hate it!! I don't even want to hit the "Post Quick Reply" button on this because I know I will see it again....

    Get it out of there!!! It's got to be a mistake on someone's part...

    I have yet to see it so I'm doing a quick reply to see what all the fuss is about.

    EDIT: Ok, I saw nothing. NOTHING! Enjoy your spinning Epic, suckers!

    ANOTHER UPDATE: Yeah, I've been clicking around with both IE and Chrome and still haven't seen a spinning Epic. Guess I will just count myself as lucky.

    Agreed. I don't need to see an ad every time I click a link. It is really annoying to click out of it every single time I see it. It is really not good for the site.

    hmmm....running Chrome and NOT getting it.

    Oh wait....ok, I disconnected from my office network and connected via tethering to my phone and now I see it. Must be my office network is blocking it.

    Yes, that is quite annoying **untethers phone and reconnects to office network**

    I understand AC has to make a buck but this place is getting kind of advert heavy. I know we don't have to be here if we don't want to be and it's all part of the game but being in online marketing myself I have to say there literally is over-kill.

    i've yet to experience this-- i'll similarly count myself as lucky.

    kinda funny they're allowing it to run as a pop up when accessing the Evo forum.
    it's like i recently saw a Verizon Ad with the spokeman tag line, "can you hear me now" on a resource site for the Deaf Community.
    that's just hilariously bad placement.

    I filled out the contact form reporting a bug with the site about an hour and a half ago. Phil Nickinson immediately responded with this:

    "Tell me about it. Got our ad agency looking into it. Standby.

    - Phil
    "

    So apparently Phil got movement on it. Thanks Phil!!!
