    Is anyone else experiencing being shut out of TB.com by this new B.S.?

    Doesn't happen at work where there are more stop gaps set up on our network that anyone can count, but on my home computer, Bam, right there.

    I love this place but, you're let on the site for about 30 seconds and then a banner pops up telling you to turn off any ad blocker software you might have running (and maybe not be aware of) and then won't let you back on the site?

    If the admin's at TB .com put this on the site, you could at least tell us how to satisfy the stupid thing. If you didn't, I need to call my computer guy................

    I haven't experienced any pop-ups or other problems.

    I use a Mac & Safari, if that makes any difference.

    You have to create an exception in the pop-up blocker for tb.com.

    More and more sites are getting wise to the ad-blocker's. On Chrome you click on the ABP in the upper right hand corner and click disable for this site. I'm not sure what to do for IE though. Who the hell still uses IE?
