Everytime I come to this site, I want to leave within 30 seconds, because I get the stupid pop up ad to sign up for paleo hack spam. Somehow it defeats my no pop up ads browser setting and ad blocker add-in. Can someone who runs this site turn that nonsense off?
After you log in and tell it to stay logged in the popup goes away. If this is not happening your browser is likely caching a copy of the page or the script and displaying it instead of the live page/script. If you are using Internet Explorer I can almost guarantee that is the issue.
Clear your browser cache, it should fix the problem.

I also hate the ads, but not enough to stop coming here. Well, I just installed AdBlock for Chrome and now I am ad free. Hooray!
Sorry your ad-blocker doesn't work. Maybe you should look into that...
It's funny as that was my first question
I keep myself signed in and I no longer have any issues with pop-ups
I never see any popups in Chrome, as others have said. However, on my Kindle, I see banner ads. Today, an ad crowed, "Montel Williams: six pack at 56! How'd he do it?" So naturally I clicked it with the anticipation of seeing Montel's abs. No dice. Hey Montel: pix, or it didn't happen!
That aside, sustaining itself with ads means we don't pay to use this valuable resource. And since Chrome makes it easy to block most ads, grousing about it here seems ungrateful, to say the least. I suggest downloading an appropriate browser, put up with the ads, or take a hike.
When I use my PC it doesn't pop up because I am logged in. When I browse on my iPhone or iPad it drives me fucking insane and makes me want to stop using the site.
That and the fucking never ending spam going on lately. Who gets enjoyment out of that?
