Opinion Central Pop-up Survey

Anyone else getting annoyed with this?

It will not go away, so I thought I would click through it.  It appears to be 50 questions long and included way too much personal info so I closed it.  I may go through it with bogus responses and mark any questions as unfavorably as possible.  Payback baby!

Is this survey authorized by Roadfood.com?

    I just close RF when it shows up. I can't catch the moving teeny X
    to get rid of the thing. :)

    +1 - AdBlock Plus for Firefox is a God-send.  It has improved my browsing experience here - and elsewhere - immeasurably.

    I just recently made the switch from Internet Explorer to Firefox, and I imagine that's why I've been spared this intrusive survey. Unwanted pop-ups are a real pain in the behind.

    I must be in the wrong demographic.  I've never seen that.

    I am using Firefox.  Bobbi uses Explorer and doesn't get the pop-up.

    Do you have the "Block popup windows" box ticked under Tools/Options/Content?

    Bob,
    Is it easy to import your Explorer "Favorites" once you switch to Foxfire?

    Yes. 

    I guess this isn't really a "pop-up" as in opening in a new window or tab.  It floats over the Roadfood.com page and I can barely see through it.  It doesn't go away until I click the "No thanks" box.

    It has not shown up yet this morning.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I have not received this pop-up on Roadfood in a while.

    Google Opinion Central Popup and you get about four pages of hits for mostly message boards. Folks there bitterly complain about Opinion Central.
