I haven't had any problem with them. While I'm responding, I don't even see any, as they don't appear until after I've posted. When I'm reading discussions I can pretty much ignore them, unless I accidentally hit them with my curser. I've gotten good at avoidance maneuvers...lol.

Yeah they're annoying. Can you download Firefox and the noscript add on? You won't see them any more if you do. Warning though, noscript takes a lot of set up work, you have to 'enable scripts' for every site that you go to basically.

Hi Hatley, I really don't understand why on earth they have to be there anyway, they are a nuisance and it would just be nice that they were removed, but guess that won't happen so will have to grin and bear it I hate them too...LoLo

hi little owl yep we will have to grin and bear it because we do not have any zappers to use that would do away with them.

I don't like them either, but I am sure it makes it so they can keep paying us. I guess we will just have to live with it for a while anyways.

hi thoroughrob yep me either but of course we can learn to live with them though I do doubt that 'with all the big name sponsors that mylot has' they are going to go broke if they did not have' them. I know I could not make them change as my responder accused me of trying to do . heavens' she was even snippy about it.

They don't bother me too much. They were annoying at first, but I just ignore them and don't think too much about it.

Hi there Hatley, I do not get them as I have Firefox and No Script so it stops things like that If you have Firefox that is what you need to get from the Add ons and all those silly Adverts will stop

hi fwidman still like your red shoes there, I noticed them when I was trying to read a discussion and form my response, and the pop up was right over some of the words in the discussion. lol

I usually answer discussions from my email so I guess I just haven't been paying that much attention to things. I like them shoes too, but I'm thinking of changing the avatar again soon

I'm so agree with you Hatley!! They are a pain in the a$$ in the worst of ways!! I mean, to run our cursor over them danged things and it pops up a box on that particular word is nerve racking!! Mylot used to be so much fun to come to and talk about this and that and now with all the changes, it's not as fun as it used to be. I still come back because of all my wonderful friends that are on here including YOU!!

I so agree with you. It's pretty annoying when you are trying to read something and then you get stuck on those blue words and can't move about anymore. It bother's my eyes too. It would be nice if we were benefiting from them.

at first, these blue lines are so annoying to me, and sometimes lose track when i am posting. but then, in the long run, i came to be used with them and now i just ignore them. i just don't know why these are keep appearing in our posts.

hi neildc yes they are annoying but we will get used to them, I wonder if mylot is ever going to tell us why they are there in the first place?

There are nearly 2 lacs members on mylot. Even if half of them are active at any given moment then it comes to nearly one lac. Even if mylot pays 1 cent to each member then it will come to 1,00,000 cents which will be $1000 every day. To keep their nose above water they will have to look for other sources of income. Under the circumstances this is the best option they have. So finally it is for the benefit of all of us. To survive let us all hold each others hands with a smile. Hope you will understand and take this uneasiness in your stride smilingly.

hi meapas oh yes it really is sort of silly to' sweat the small stuff and the little blue lines are indeed small stuff. So yes I will be okay and come out smiling again.

I don't let the blue lines bother me. I think they did at first, but now that I am used to them, I don't even pay attention to them. It is my favorite color so it is pleasant to the eyes. Better than red or black, that is for sure. The longer I am on here, things like that become so trivial anyway. I am here to have fun, and that is what I am doing. Take care, and happy myloting.

I'll bet you really hate them now since they've had mylot unresponsive all weekend. I hope the lot gets this fixed soon today so we can catch back up with all those discussions that were started and couldn't be responded to.
