Full Screen Ads - Yow! - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

-- Amateur Radio
-- Anecdotes, Gripes & Humor
-- Antennas
-- CAE, CAD, & Software
-- Circuits & Components
-- Employment & Interviews

Yeah I hate those :smt013 fullpage ads that pop up on a lot of the websites. If it ever happens here I'll go elsewhere.

The one I hate most is EE Times website. Theirs gives you a place to click to skip the ad and then it usually makes you sit there through the entire countdown anyway. I hate their site and refuse to go there anymoe. I look at hyperlinks before clicking and if they go to EE Times, I don't click - except by accident.

Some of the news sites are pulling this crap now and I won't go to them either.

You are doing the most important thing, and I do it also.

If I see those kinds of ads, I immediately leave the site. If the site was in my 'bookmarks' file, I remove it.

The people that run the site run statistics regularly to see how their site is performing. If more of us would immediately leave the site and not go back, they would very quickly see that something they have done is chasing people away.

But (worse)^n*these are the full page ad-webs that trap you and give no "reverse out" back-arrow.
They really suck, especially if you need to return to say your origin google or altavista engine site where there are loads of results pages you need. But you lose the lot simply because some total skrote designed a site you get trapped in, like in a black hole.
(Wow, I never got closer to flaming on a site before. Close one)

Evening Gents,

You can add Cellular News to the list of site to be abhored for such schemes.

Forbes takes the prize because they title their page to be a "Welcome Screen."
