I think that if Kellogg realized how many people are turned off by that advertisement they would pull it. I am sure that it is doing them more harm than good and someone should get the message to them.

Just kidding of course. Now he is a distant bad memory, and whatever he was sellin is now just a small still ad at the edge of my screen.
I'm only starting to get used to firefox, but it is well worth it.

complain effectively

So - e-mail KELLOGS and tell them you're buying exclusively General Mills until the guy is permanently GONE!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

Crusty,

Just wanted to say "thanks" for one of the best tips I have picked up on this forum. I was ready to stategically place some electrical tape across my laptop monitor, so that I didn't have to look at the "waving arms guy." Believe me......Kellogs products are definitely off our purchase lists. Thanks again for the tip on editing the HOSTS file.

Ron

I already did that....

Not my style to even comment on posts of this nature - this IS supposed to be an Airstream Forum - not a *#$&!#* advertising page!
This is clearly the most aggravating thing I've ever experienced on any of the forums that I participate in. The *#$&!#* peal back corner was bad enough. This one is over the top.

Ron, if you take a look at my post in this thread which has the contents of my own HOSTS file, you'll also see a couple of other ad networks listed that you can add to your HOSTS file to do away with some other similar troublesome sites.

After reading this thread, I don't know how you resisted the urge to install all manner of dubiousware onto your system and instead just added one line to a text file to fix the problem.

Crsuty, please add my thanks to the others, I'm still using IE7, but adding those lines made life much better.

I'm nominating you for Man Of The Year.

No no Marvin, don't do that it will only punish us your forum friends. However members shouldn't have to go through elaborate workarounds to rid their computers of self induced nuisances like intrusive ads.

Andy, puleeze help!
