    It has just started happening recently. But is anyone else getting annoying pop-ups on this site now? Each time i go back to the home page there will be a pop-up that you cant exit out of.

I also use the Google toolbar which blocks any popups, but lets you allow popups on certain popups that you need. The website for the Google toolbar is
