Anyone else being driven crazy by this darn Mattel unwishlist?

Can I change my settings? Every single time I do anything on GW this very annoying Mattel ad video comes up. Earlier today, I couldn't even get into GW and I am assuming the software from that ad was screwing everything up. Am I the only one having this problem?

I don't get the Mattel video but I couldn't get on Gardenweb earlier either. So it must be an issue on the site end. Maybe try clearing your internet history/cookies and see if that makes the Mattel annoyance go away. Good luck!

LT thanks!

I had cleared my browsing history, but your suggestion got me to thinking, so I closed everything down, and restarted, didn't let Google chrome restore my previous settings... and voila, no more frikken ads. Hope they stay away! It was really having the opposite effect that I am sure Mattel intended! LOL

They were driving me crazy too, seem to be gone off my iPad, made coming onto GW impossible from my smartphone.

No annoying ads here but Garden Web wouldn't load this morning for some other reason.

I couldn't get GW to load yesterday late afternoon; or was it early evening?
