    Man, What's up with all the popups, Man are they fucking annoying.. Anywho...

    I started this thread to offer a slightly different perspective.. The other thread is getting way off topic. {MODS,How about letting this thread go before closeing it, just to see what comes of it..}
    -----------------------------------
    Here is the post in question,

    When Brad is asked "What is this all about" He responds........."You tell me."VH content? Figure it out. [img]smile.gif[/img] "

    You tell me.

    Brad
    12-12-12: 5-2=just 3 left
    The Official Van Halen Web Site
    http://www.van-halen.com

    Note, unless I'm reading it wrong, Brad seems to be the one who mentioned the phrase "VAN HALEN CONTENT?" with a question mark, Just begging us to take a guess But Even if I'm wrong and that words VH CONTENT were posted by the person asking the question, Brad does not come right out and say, "No it has nothing to do with the band" Which you would expect him to do.
    If this has nothing to do with VH "the band" than Brad is a complete ass who is most certainly playing games with us... He knows anything he posts about VH is going to spread like Wildfire around to all the BBSs. So with that thought in mind. He is either going to have something to say at some point or he is a total jerk. I can't see this having anything to do with a new guitar. No way. This is not how you promote a guitar and as Someone mentioned already, NAMM is the place you promote a new guitar and that's over with, You don't announce a new guitar three days after NAMM ends.

    King - Not to be off topic here, but just for a sec. You should only get the ad pop up ONCE in 24-hours!! If you are getting it more often, let me know.

    Dude that should NOT be happening!!! Your cookies must be screwed. You might have to clear them out because you should not be getting more than ONE pop-up every 24 hours.

    King, I occasionally have the same problem. It only happens when I leave my browser running for days on end. When I start to have it happen, I quit the browser and restart it. Problem solved, for me at least. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Brett,

    Since we are already off the main topic anyway, I also have a similar problem. Every time I go back to the main forums listing page, I get the voting popup again. Doesn't matter if I delete all my cookies, restart my browser or anything. It happens on multiple PC's.
    ExpandedConsciousness:

    WOW!!! HOLYFUCKINGFUCK!!! What kind of Twilight Zone am I living in? What kind of Viagra-Testosterone mix are these 50 year old + guys on? I never thought I'd hear another Dave and Eddie album again. If I did, I thought it would be a mid-paced affair like the Rolling Stones or later day AC/DC. After the TATTOO single I was ready for a poppy album from old guys, with a few nods to harder rock (She's A Woman and Bullethead) and I would have been happy with that.

    I NEVER THOUGHT I'D BE GETTING A FULL-THROTTLE HARD ROCK, HEAVY METAL, BALLS TO THE WALL, FUCKING VAN HALEN THRASH METAL ALBUM!!!

    Maybe the sig has no VH content, and he was asking where is the VH content in the question.

    Brad's sig is a personal question to Brad, and not relating to VH.

    I don't know. Brad is weird like that.
    CHICAGO WHITE SOX - 2005 WORLD CHAMPIONS

    The Chicago White Sox (1901-present) - The Original SOX - Proof

    The Boston Americans (1901)
    The Boston Somersets (1902)
    The Boston Pilgrims (1903-1906)
    The Boston Red Sox (1907-present) - Proof

    The Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets whatever you want to call them, have NEVER displayed "SOX" anywhere on their caps, jerseys, or merchandise, therefore they shouldn't be referred to as such. However, the White Sox have used "SOX" since 1912.

    The SOX are in Chicago...we just allow the Pilgrims/Americans/Somersets to use the name.

    Hehe. That statement brings back bad memories. All this time I thought Ed seemed really dumb on that MTV interview. Nothing more manly than threatening to kick someone in the balls

    Hey, couldn't help notice the pop up conversation going on here. I get one each time I open a page until I get to the forums. It is very annoying.

    I've installed at my home computer a free software program called "Popup Stopper" I downloaded it from http://www.downloads.com

    It works very well, for any interested. Unless you hold CTL down, you won't get them.

    Now, back to the regular scheduled program...

    The more and more i think of it, the more and more I think it's in reference to 3 new models of 12 string guitars by Ed. NAMM or no NAMM, Ed's product information still spreads like wildfire.

    Either way, VHForums is sure seeing plenty more hits of activity. So it ain't all bad.

    The inclusion of the words "VH Content" is not that big a deal.

    On the particular mailing list that he posted the message, there is a list rule for all on-topic posts. Every post must have "VH content." Often, though, people will post something off-topic and then say something like "VH Content: VH rocks!" or "VH Content: I heard Panama on the radio today" just so the post includes some VH content.

    I don't think it means anything...
