Pop-ups

Hi, I never usually get pop-ups from TF, but for the past few weeks or so, everytime I read a thread in GM (it only happens when im in GM), I keep getting these annoying pop-ups from 'TextQuiz' that open a new tab and it is making it almost impossible to read the forum. Do you have any adivce how I can stop this?

Re: Pop-ups

I have the same. It's so annoying that I am actually considering quitting the forum after almost a decade. It gets impossible to read anything. A pop-up appears as soon as you start scrolling.

Re: Pop-ups

Yeah, can this please be looked at? Seems to only happen for me in Firefox, but it's very annoying.

Re: Pop-ups

This pop-up is REALLY annoying.

"But certain interests of particular people are so important that it would be wrong - morally wrong - for the community to sacrifice those interests just to secure an overall benefit. Political rights mark off and protect these particularly important interests. A political right, we may say, is a trump over the kind of trade-off argument that normally justifies political action." - Ronald Dworkin (RIP)
