Those damned pineapple guys!!!!!

Recommended Posts

I've accidentally gone to that site (or at least closed a window that was in the process of loading it) like 5 times now.

There's no apparent close button so you just have to wait for it! At least Mulder and Scully hat a little barely visible [close] box...

Popups? Ads? Where?


I assume you mean there's a way not to see them. I figure so, but this is the only site I frequent which has anything Firefox doesn't handle by default so I've never gotten around to looking into that...

I don't usually mind adds but the ones here like to impair my vision and use very small or invisible close buttons. Really annoying...

What a minute, you're trying to tell me Doomworld has ads? Seriously? Get out of here!

*looks under the covers* - Nope, no ads here.
*looks under the bed* - Nope, no ads here either.
*looks in the closet* - Nope, there's no ads here.
*looks behind the curtain* - Definitely no ads here.

See, you're just imagining things! :p

I refused to buy "Soldner: Secret Wars" or see that film with the burning guy on a motorbike (but apparently both where pretty shitty anywaty) because of flash ads. The soldner one especially as it "faded in" slowly so you'd click on it while it was invisible

I thought you were being harassed by Quakers with grenade launchers, not ads.

Better than for those people that's for sure, since there's the risk of getting caught by angry cops while flashing bare cheeks.

I have ads on my ass.


I actually heard that a guy was willing to sell his body to advertising on eBay. He was short on money, and for a formidable price he would get a tattoo of an ad for a big company somewhere on his body.

Normally I don't get ads but on /idgames/ FireFox blocks many popups, the banners are there at the top, and some incredibly irritating flash-based popup ads get through. Like the mentioned Pineapple guys.

I've yet to see the pineapple guys, but I did see one window about a futon or something. futon news? like I need news on furniture.

EDIT: upon disabling adblock, I noticed about 3 ads that were blatant copyright infringement.

Install Adblock Plus

Download is only a couple of seconds and a restart of FF and you are good to go (ad-free too)


I tried that, but it makes certain features on the forums vanish for me :/

Huh? Like what exactly?

Maybe to appeal to frequent complaints, I now noticed that the Pineapple guys have a HUGE ASS CLOSE BUTTON (only that it blends and camouflages with the DW background...coincidence?)
