More here: A necessary evil
If you visit from just 1 PC you will only see the ad once per day.
Recently visiting this superb forum from various computers I have been surprised to fing that a neigh on full screen pop up type "Prevent Data Loss" advertisement from Symantec has captured my screen. I find this obtrusive - much like I have taken Symantec products off my home computers because of frustration over their trying to get me to renew subscriptions from close on 3 months before expiry! Most of the advertisements on the Forum are, effective, useful and unobtrusive - why is the Symantec one otherwise. Or am I alone in suffering from this?

It screwed up my browser earlier (Firefox 22.214.171.124) required me to shut down and re-load it. Should have screen captured it really. Instead of coming up in a popup window, it came up in the main browser page, but in doing so managed to get rid of the toolbar and address bar some how!
Ah well, I'm counting the days until it's removed from the site TBH, I know it's generating some revenue for BETT, but it's damned annoying!!
