Difficulty accessing forum

I've noticed when logging onto Airforms I'm getting increasing Requests to Register with Air Forums. Today I had to blow by the request 7 times. I feel this is a dishonest practice and does not warrant my continued participation. When I first joined the page I was given a set of rules, apparently this is one sided.

Boondockers sometimes have limited internet access. Please remove me from your organization.

Huh? So you joined so that you could post a request to be removed?

Sorry, I don't get it

I'm thinking it's the pop up page that annoyed them.

We use airforums predominantly on an android phone thru the Airforums app so no problems at all. We are contributing members.

Push the icon and you are right in. No pop ups, no ads.

However....When signing on at home on a desktop, usually to see a nice photograph in a bigger format, it can be tedious.
I start to sign in with my password, and your concentrating on the keyboard, then the pop up blocks you and you need to stop ant delete it. Seems like a race to get your signature on done before the pop up comes back several times.

Once signed on no problems.

I have no problems when using from my desktop.

However, if I trying to view Airforums via the web browser on my tablet or phone, the register popup keeps popping up. It is very annoying, and I've never been able to make it go away for more than a few seconds.

This popup has been complained about before, and is still there. Obviously the site does not have much confidence the content will interest you to keep coming back??? Who cares if you are subscribed? The traffic to the site will determine the advertising content. Why piss people off before they even get into the site to see what is there?

To turn the popup off, these instructions work on a browser (not through the app). If you go into your User CP, under settings and options, click Edit Options, scroll down to the bottom and uncheck the Airstream Daily Popup.
