Anyone else annoyed at the popup questionaire that comes up before you sign in?

If you guys find it annoying that the questionaire asking you how you heard about lawnsite seems to always come up when you try to sign on to the page then let someone know about it. I sent an email to someone about it letting them know there is no other site i am aware of that does this. Every time I go to sign my screen name on,this crap jumps up in front of me covering the screen. It looks like the typical telemarketing questionarre asking how you heard about the site etc. Your choices are only to click "not at this time" or to fill the stupid thing out. How about a choice that say, "do not ask me again". That at least would cure the problem. Someone said that maybe it was because we had our browser set to not accept cookies. Well if we have it set that way it is because it is our choice not to have cookies and to keep info private. Just give us a choice to click " dont ask me again" and I think everyone or most of us would click it,lol. Just something about the site I found aggrevating and it seems someone at the top doesnt really care what we think. If they did they would let us have a choice to not have this thing come up and interrupt our sign on. It just started doing this not long ago. So one has to wonder why they do it, its not like there arent advertisers on their webpage,lol

I posted about this last week, and it's still happening. I clear all my cookies with CCleaner(free download, works great). I also get the opaque screen when I click on the link in the emails telling me someone has posted on a thread I've posted on. Getting really annoying, as I've obviously registered long ago to get to this point.....Odd that it happens to some of us, and not others. So sorry if this isn't the place for this; just adding my frustration to the mix. And no, I don't log out each session. Is it because I'm on my laptop, working in Iowa, using wireless DSL? Didn't happen back home on the LL.

Clearing your cookies is the problem.
Also, go to User CP and then to Edit Options. Put in "do not subscribe" to stop the email notifications.

Why does Lawnsite want a cookie stored on our computer?

It saves information for the next time you come online such as your username and password
