    This overlay is a campaign which will end tonight when the timer runs out.

    Its happening on many forums like Colt, 24hourcampfire, FJCrusier, etc. It is definitely a popup imbedded in certain forum hosting sites/templates. Once this particular Amazon ad campaign is timed out, I'm sure a new one will take its place. Its how it works.

    Whoever the HKPro admin/owner is needs to contact the forum vendor/supplier and get this turned off. Please!

    Well, I suppose the site owner might want it to stay, but that will cost them more in traffic and lost premium memberships I would think. Everyone hates an annoying pop up more than anything.

    The Colt forum and 24hourcampfire forum seem to have already stopped it. I reached out to them to find out how they did it and plan to post it here and in a PM to the admin/owner. For the sake of this site I think it needs to get nuked! lol

    There once was a forum that I used to haunt (if I were a poet I could do more with this) until his forum denied access to those who blocked ads. I guess it worked out for him because he's still there but I am not and neither are some others for the same reason.

    It's happening on a Volvo forum that I frequent, too. Pretty much all of the forums owned by VS. Pretty sick. Lame. Disgusted. Now you know why I stopped renewing my Premium membership.

    You say this like it's an acceptable practice.
