I clicked on one of the "go to forum" links at the bottom of the thread.
Twice now I've had an annoying "Dear gamedev.net visitor" ad open a new tab asking me to complete a survey, with speech as well, which makes it doubly annoying.
I don't want to do a survey that opens new tabs in my browser and speaks, please get rid.
I also seem to have an issue with posting new threads (and looking at PMs) in that it seems to hang the browser in a "loading" loop for so long I have to cancel the page load and try it again by refreshing... I can't be the only one with this issue? I'm using Firefox. EDIT: I've had this issue for a while though, not just since I got this annoying ad.
EDIT: Hmm, it appears to be something to do with a plugin called "Webcake ads" which installed itself when I installed open office, it is underlining a lot of words in posts which presumably take me to other ads. I'll disable that right away!
