    It's causing all sorts of bugs on my browser.
    I cannot use the preset buttons anymore because of it (img, quote...etc) and it slow down everything.

    I know that this thread is going to get moved/deleted but it looks like no one is reading the proper board for complaints.

    The links are really annoying and they seem to make my browser go apeshit, resulting in maxing the processor usage.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

    Your host file doesn

    What browsers are you guys using? Mozilla Firefox is just about the best you can get for a Windows system, so I suggest trying it if you don't already have it.

    It screws with Firefox too, increases the loading times a hell of a lot.

    They don't bug out my system, they're just really, really annoying. Still, it beats paying for the site...

    I'm not complaining about ads, I don't mind ads. I'm complaining because I can't start new threads or quote people.

    The easy way to get rid of all the ads and help support the website is to click this link and donate!

    http://www.sherdog.net/forums/subscriptions.php

    $9.95 is a REALLY small donation. That is about $.33 a day. You probably donate more to the local beggars on the street, or the beatnick playing guitar on the side of the road.

    Suck it up, and pony up some cash guys.
