    Hence my thread about it, and how to kill it

    There are many other ways to include video content on a webpage that doesn't cover the content. That pop up is just annoying and displays a lack of layout creativity. That same video could be embedded into the page directly and without sound it could be displayed as a .gif file -- you would accomplish the same thing using less data and less annoying with no covered content and folks would be more likely to view your message.
    🤔
    As it is right now, I just have it blocked and have no idea what it's about. Not doing the advertiser much good.
    Rethink the layout. 👍

    Ditto, it trashes the forum even more, wonderful on a limited data budget

    Doesn't cover anything for me - and at least its silent - but annoying nontheless. Blocked.

    I'm often here on my phone so screen space is sometimes an issue. Whenever it's convenient, I use my laptop.

    It's a conspiracy to remove the much less tolerant "old members" from the forum. Apparently, the young folk don't mind the clutter. They like the concept of drinking from a fire hose.
    :D

    I thought popups died in the 90's but I guess some folks still use them.

    It is their site and they can do as they wish, but yea... they could have done it in a manner that is less annoying.

    Yeah, it does not change the cost of me using the forum.

    I finally figured out how to block them with AdBlock Ultimate.  Thank god. Whoever came up with that idea belongs to the same group as whoever came up with "Coke" to replace Coca Cola back in the 80s.

    If they had put it on the left side I may not have blocked it, but the right side did not work for me.
