Survey pop-ups getting really annoying!

Is there some setting here at iV that will stop those blasted things from sliding across the screen? Every single time I visit iV, usually several different times a day, most boards I open up I'll very quickly have one of the stupid things gliding across the screen. They're all trying to get you to take some kind of survey, and they are about as annoying as flies, I don't do surveys. I have pop-up stopper and am a paying iV member, I've written to iV a couple of times now and they just write back saying they keep those to a minimum. Not true if you see them on every board every visit you make. I try to ignore them, but is there a way to stop them instead??? It's getting worse, not better.

I hate it, too, they just do it waaaay too much. I won't pay even for the basic perks again, to me the floating ads cancel out the good stuff you gain. I'll check out the add on you mentioned, not familiar with it yet, but clearly iV is not going to slow down the ads.

I understand what you're saying, but every single time you visit, and often on every board you open (at least that's the experience on this computer) - that's too much. An occasional one, fine.

Couldn't have said it better. Just be reasonable.

I have pop-up stopper, which stops almost all of it ELSEWHERE. Has no effect at all on those little floaters at iV, which I get virtually every visit to iV, and I visit several times a day. They're different color boxes that float, too, they just need to use some sense how often they pitch them at you.

I've been using Firefox for the last 4 years and I think I get those floating ads once a day or every other day. I haven't gotten any today, yet!
