Irony

Does anyone see the irony in this screenshot?


Later edit: To me the irony is a pop up ad advertising how to block pop up ads.

    1. Lee, ok. Maybe what is obvious to me is not to everyone. I will revisit later today. Thanks.

  5. The ad is already there, click and they offer you a subscription, pay, to stop getting ads.

  6. I use a very good blocking program that works with Mozilla. Its called UBlockOrigin. I have the pleasure of not seeing any ads.

    cheers,

    1. Pip, I don't know why I've not bothered with a pop up blocker. I know there are free ones out there.

  7. We have to pay to stop seeing ads which in turn advertise goods that we have to pay money for???? Now THAT is ironic :)

    1. Kirk, does it go to your spam folder automatically?

    2. Yes. Always. I should have mentioned that before. Obviously, it doesn't think it belongs there.
