    NASCAR overlay ads??

    Are these *really* necessary?? I can't think of anything more annoying than an ad that blanks out the screen and forces me to click-to-remove before I can access the site, and does so for *every* break that I check the forecast on.

    Anyone else agree?

    Totally agree. NASCAR blows as bad as popup ads. This will drive me away from the site faster than a nzsm njsm love child.

    I could be wrong, but it's probably not swellinfo. ISPs in the central Atlantic states have been injecting ads in between their consumers and the sites they browse. I say that based on what you're describing, which are ads kind of floating above the browser window in a window that had become modal. That's not really this site's style and I'm betting not many users are experiencing it. I'm not seeing anything like that on two different IOS versions, mozilla or ie. There were a couple of white papers about this practice published in the last year. Fuchs em in the goat arse I say.

    Or you both could frequent the same porn sites and have the same malware, who knows. Posts like the above are why Tequila Tuesday is a bad thing.

    Ya know, I got kicked out of a bar in the Outer Banks for busting on NASCAR, the ol' Weeping Radish in Corolla. Suposedly the manager there really liked NASCAR. I don't.

    Oh man the worst was getting stuck on the way back to Jersey from a southern sojourn and not realizing it was Dover's time to shine and bathe in NASCAR glory. What was that highway? RT 13 right, maybe RT 113? Sorry, it's been awhile since I have traveled down thar.

    Man, I dig Delaware once you get out of New Castle county, and it all opens up. Now don't got me wrong, I dig hooker motels on Rt 13 in New Castle and all, but I'm referring to, you know, taking a trip(a drive) and getting away from "it all." New Castle county is a little too close to Nueve Yersey activities.

    Ahhh a late September day, driving to North Cakalacka. Quiet roads, small towns, the smell of burning leaves in the crisp fall air, THC on the brain....The Chesepeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.....yeah, that was good stuff
