block GroupOn popups in NationalReview

Posted

GroupOn ads get through the block popups preference. They pop up EVERY DAMNED TIME I link within National Review.Story to story, internal and external. They litter my computer and aggravate me. I'm not subscribed, asked to be unsubscribed, was told I'm not subscribed, told National Review about it. This ad sequence is like a roach and I hate it. Mac laptop a home; PC desktop at work same result.

Go to http://www.kontera.com/ad-choices?utm_source=kona_layer_adchoices (found this link via "Ad Choices" on Groupon pop-up) Find paragraph labelled "Do you want to disable Kontera links?" Select "Click here" It will execute "javascript:disableKonteraLinks();" This worked on my Mozilla Firefox 5.0

I was upset with this GROUPON! I saw it is available as an add on that means we can choose this option DO NOT FORCE IT ON US. It is not nice to force us to clean up options we did not ask to install.

But in checking everything it seems it is part of MEEBO. MEEBO has no off/ disable. This is CRAP. IF you truly thought we would like your product you would have allowed us to disable it.
