The pop-ups have been gone for a while, at least for me. I'm sad to see them back. At least it's not a "must-acknowledge" one; as long as it's not covering what you need to see/do it does not impinge on being able to do stuff on the page.

I HATE IT !   I complained when they first came out and asked why they were not placed on the RIGHT side where 1/3 of the page vertically is blank.   The original ad was moved to that side and other Rainers and myself were OK with that.

Today, I got slapped in the face again !   Literally !!!   I find it RUDE, INAPPROPRIATE and UNNECESSARY !   I also find it disruptive to MY using the site, especially when I am using my Iphone to check MY homepage and see the current activity on my account.   The ad actually OBSTRUCTS being able to see who commented or answered my entries.

I am PAYING for access and usage of this site and I do NOT think it is in my best interest or what I PAID for to be SLAPPED IN THE FACE every time I sign into MY, that's right, it's MINE; account !

I think ALL Rainers should STAND UP and be heard on this matter and DEMAND that ActiveRain take them down or, at least;

MOVE THEM BACK TO THE RIGHT !
