What popups do you get? There shouldn't be any coming from this site.

I'm going to guess that you're using Internet Explorer. It most likely means that you have adware installed on your computer. Two solutions, which dovetail:

A) Use Firefox instead. Downloading and installing it should take no more than five minutes of your life, and you'll be happier.
B) Get Spybot Search and Destroy AND AdAware, and use them both.

Best of luck.

I use firefox and a few times when I came to the index page firefox said it blocked popups.

I disabled the block to see what it was and nothing came up.

strange.

the only thing that, by default but changed be changed, is the PM notification pop-up window, so maybe firefox blocked that?

I was just headed here to say that. now that I allowed this site to deliver pop ups in firefox, I came today and got the PM pop-up.
