    So, how many of you have been the 10,000,000th person to visit this site :rolleyes:

    I've seen three pop-ups today alone. Maybe TF should have another talk with our beloved host, TeleFragged.

    Is anyone else seeing these or is it just me!??!?

    They are tolerable. There is always one or two, but once you are in the forum, it's o.k.

    So... Does that mean we all clicked the site at the same moment??? :eek:

    So yes, I got them as well, though they don't appear so often. But I don't get how they can believe people will actually win something because they are the 10 000 000 th, while people obviously know they aren't :lol:

    I just was selected to take a 5 question survey and get a 115$ package for it or something like that.

    This sucks!

    We can always buy more bandwith if we just get visa cards, platinum in fact. Just got an advertisement for those too.

    This is getting a little odd.

    Now if they offer some ping pong paddles I won't be so mad.

    :D
