Does anyone else have this problem?

What would men be without women? Scarce, sir, mighty scarce.
I use firefox and still have problems.
Seriously, there are four or five ads on each page, usually moving and half the time they cover up the links for the actual content. And there are pop-ups, surveys for iVillage that are not about anything having to do with iVillage except its advertising, in addition to pop-ups from scammy looking companies that get through the pop-up blockers. Now they even have those Bing links in the text! It's beyond maddening.
The one that bugged me most recently was that whole Lay's promotion. I was sorely tempted to submit the slogan: "The family that lay's together, stays together." With all the nutrition, health and weight loss content here, I don't see why ivillage should promote potato chips.
BTW, what do those Bing things do? I clicked on one, got a menu, clicked on a link to a post on another board and was led to an advertisement for placing my add in the link (or so it seemed). Completely pointless. I just checked, each of those bing things give me the same little window listing 3 links to posts on other boards, the first one is always about Uncle Bud dying. But if I click it, I get an ad for placing an ad.

I use Firefox. I gave up on Explorer a long time ago. But everything is so slow to load that I can play several hands of solitaire before I can scroll down to read. It's ridiculous.
And while we're at it. I hate the alpha/slacker mom quiz. I read the first question as "I" missed the bus, not that my child missed the bus. Nothing is that either/or.

When it's not ridiculously slow, it crashes.
