Anyone else getting this new social network/suggested article box that slides over in the lower corner of racerX articles when you start scrolling down?

It's pretty damn annoying and covers a good portion of the article/feature. No bueno.


I think it's only supposed to pop up once you reach the bottom of the page but that's not how it's been working for me.

Totaly sucks! I can't make it go away, looked for and X to click on but there isn't one. Very annoying, I hope they get rid of it.

Firefox and NoScript is the go.

Stops alot of popups, banner ads and general useless shit from using your bandwidth and cluttering up the pages.

Yep, hate it too.

totally sucks. If they had an "x" to click I could live with it. And it's just suggesting more artilcles , I'm sure 99% of us read every single one already, it would almost make sense if it were paid advertising because hell, everone needs income

I hate it too..




OT: The MacBook battery life tab... I was looking at that same website earlier today.

It is gone. You might need to do a hard refresh on your browser to see the change, but it's not there anymore.

As of 9:20 PM ET I'm STILL getting that annoying pop-up. Anyone else? It sucks!

Sounds to me like it's KTMs fault. Damn KTM.

Don’t piss off the old people - the older they get the less “life in prison” is a deterrent for them!
