OMG I'M GETTING A SERVICE FOR FREE AND THE COST OF BANDWIDTH FOR SOMEONE ELSE, HOW DARE THEY PUT ADS TO FUND THIS, IF ALL ADS AREN'T REMOVED WITHIN 24 HOURS, I'LL DROWN A KITTEN.
Re-read the above until you realized how foolish your post was.
I stated in my original post that I don't mind ads. BUT I do mind POP-UP ads.
I'll give you a minute to go back and re-read my original post until you realize how foolish your reply was. While you are there, notice the placement of the word "pop-up".
Ya back? Did ya happen to catch that tidbit? Or should I give you another couple minutes?
Re-load your WAU until you get the Showtime ad for "The Tudors" and tell me that isn't crossing the line. That isn't a banner ad that just sits there saying 'look at me.' That is a full fledged ZOMG LOOK AT ME!!! as it pops up above EVERYTHING ELSE and refuses to stay minimized. I hit the X button on it 15 times in a row and it kept coming back.
I love WAU. I've used it for a LONG time now. Before there was ads and continued using it AFTER ads were added. No complaints - because the program matured and continued to add new features that I really like. I've migrated alot of mods to ACE due to ease of use and new features. With no problems UNTIL the pop-up ads.
I don't want to replace WAU. It does everything I want it to flawlessly. It's the same reason I don't block Google ads. Unobtrusive ads are bearable. Pop-ups are NOT.
Let me repeat this... one... more... time, since you didn't get it the first time. Maybe I was to subtle: I don't mind ads. Pop-up ads are bulls...tuff and won't be tolerated. I won't tolerate them in my Internet Browser. And I won't tolerate them in a third party app.
Again... learn to read... and not be an arse.
