    1 minute advert b4 logging in :(

    OK so I accept the need for some banner advertising but can anyone justify the need for a 1 minute diversion to some crummy advert before I could even log in?

    NOT HAPPY! :mad:

    Because I was logging in for the 1st time at a new location I came in via www.ntfs.org which goes to the front page. As soon as I clicked in on log-in the screen redirected (in the same window) to an advert for "netlife" (I think) and kept me there for a minute or more. I tried clicking the "skip-ad" link but I got two dead pop-ups :( Eventually I came back to the log-in dialog...
