    im sick of that gm sunfire (i think thats what its for) pop up ad on tribe

    not the fact that it pops up every time i log on, or every now and then, but the fact that everytime it opens up it causes my internet explorer to perform an illegal operation and explorer being shut down.

    clearing everything in my task bar, making some stuff inacessible.

    it crashes like 80% of the time, and its been doing it all weekend.

    has this happened to anyone else? am i alone? how do i solve this (is there a way to tweak IE so it wont crash no more?)

    my pop up window killer wont even catch it in time before it crashes :(

    I've switched from Analogx Pow to Pop Not and find it superior software in general. No problems with pop ups on this site or any other. However if you get a private message Popnot treats it as a pop up window and won't allow it to open if you get the prompt. So you do have to go through your user control panel to read private messages, but it's a small hassle compared to the general convenience of the program.

    wanna talk about annoying pop ups??!?!

    my brother went to some sex site...
    lolitasomething.com.. i dont know..

    anyways it got set as the homepage and when i turn explorer on if i cant change it fast like 20 porn windows pop up...

    and the main one is big and weird and there is no way that i know of closing it..
    no x at the top
    when i right click in the bottom bar it doesnt close...
    nothing to say "close this page"

    ya and everytime you click to close one of the other windows 2 more open up..

    ya it hella sucks

    joey - hit CTRL+F4 when u want to close something and dont have a "close" button

    There is a super easy way to disable the pop up ads. d/l IE6, and put tribe in the secure area in security preferences.

    hey joey, go into the Control Panel of windows and you can get into the Internet Options there and change the start page without loading IE

    being an obnoxious, self-indulgent ney-sayer is conciderably MORE annoying than a repeat threat by someone simply looking to get rid of a computer related problem on thier system.

    lord knows you don't have to read it, and, should you have read it, you could quite easily have just clicked back onto the forum and left it be....but no, you chose to put the whole thing down for no reason other than to have people pander to your selfish notion of what should and should not be.

    that, mon amie is FAR MORE annoying than anything.

    there's allways a flip side.


    the TACKtical ONE.

    dude, that's way out of line
  15. TaCk OnE?

    TaCk OnE? TRIBE Member

    yes, it probly is.

    I don't know who's serious, and whos not anymore.

    sometimes stuff on here just seems so unnessicary and obnoxious.

    however, I'm probly the one whos totally misunderstanding what's going on, or the intention or whatever.

    I'll just try and stick to my own comments now.....I never seem to critique those of others well.

    meh, no real offense intended guys.

    Quoting, just in case someone missed it....

    Directed towards the interbitch:

    What are you bitching for? Why would you ever post something with the intention of hurting? How would you like people to constantly insult you with thoughtless remarks?

    Why would you ever post something to hurt people anyway?

    y0 damon, not trying to get all up on the moral high horse on you, so don't feel as though I'm calling you on that. who really cares one way or the other, teh intarrrrrweab would be fucking boring without people mouthing off!
  18. air-bag

    air-bag TRIBE Member

    deep are you justifying it?

    I dont think insulting people is a particularily good way of entertainment.
    Especially if YOU are being insulted.

    Those people make my ignore button work extra hours...

    yah......the internet is miscomunication central, and the ironic thing really is that it's a comunication reliant medium, that really isn't interesting (in an interactive sense) without some amount of miscomunication.

    then, there are snarky people who sounds SO much worse than they intend like myself.

    I'm one of those people who sounds really mean and harsh all the time in real life too aparently (based on others comments) I've found that I read that way too.....I'll be an excellent grumpy old man.

    if someone doesn't kill me first ;)

    justifying? what are you on about? I said it was out of line. Blowing it up into more than that is equally as ridiculous as making character assessments from a single post.

    I like trash talk, I hope this is not news to you

    There is a difference between a battling of (t)wits and people taking shit too seriously however

    so the general consensus is....

    we've been seeing too much of this bitchy "im too cool for everything under the sun fuckers" style bitchatude persona lately...

    not pointing fingers of course ;)
