I've noticed that some ads (not sure if I've seen one here) enlarge when you hover over them. Yahoo seems to be getting alot of those recently. Not sure it its a Java or CSS-based trick but it's annoying and seems to be a popular workaround to popup blocking.

They call those expandable ads. The trick is to not hover over them (ie make them expand). I don't think Google will serve those here on our site but they can serve Flash ads (which is the technology behind those).

More pros and cons:

Pros:
-I like the little msg. preview; helps with checking out threads that have ambiguous titles.
-I like the automatic titles for links in posts and not having to go to TinyURL..

Cons:
-Seems slower than the old board.
-I don't like the lag when trying to get to a new thread; it always loads the first page.. chews for a while.. and then goes to the last updated page.
-While the Subscription folder helps with seeing threads you've posted to... these threads then stay there forever with the list ever growing. The old board would "disappear" the threads that were read until a new post was added, at which point it would reappear. If I delete threads I've posted to that seem to be inactive from my Subscription folder, will they automatically get "re-subscribed" to the folder if new threads are posted in the future? Also, is there a maximum for threads in the folder? That would be the only reason to have to delete subscribed threads..

I never see any popups.
