I want to block "Do you want to block junk email?.

That "Do you want to block junk e-mail" add on the top of every page is uggggglllllllyyyyyy! It also slows up the process of loading the page. If it must be there, why not just have that add (or any add for that matter) on the first page of each subject, instead of every page.Waiting for that add to load on EVERY page I go to is frustrating. It doesn't make for a pleasent vist. Does anyone click on the "Yes"? I doubt it. :roll:

What "Do you want to block junk e-mail" thingie do you mean Wasabi?

I haven't seen it yet. Is it a Popup? if so it would be blocked on my computer. Are you sure it is generated from this site?

Sounds like spyware or a popup to me. I have never seen anything like that on this site. Wasabi, do you have any sort of spyware removal programs on your computer? some of the most popular ones are Ad Aware and spybot Search and Destroy. If you do not have something like these then you may want to consider getting them. You will probably notice a great increase in your computer speed if you get rid of the spyware on your computer.
