Complaining HERE does NO good at all because your fellow list members can't
do a blessed thing about flashing or annoying ads at RootsWeb or Ancestry.
It might make you feel better to get it off your chest <g> or you might
pick up a tip on how to bypass the ads...but none of us can get the ads
removed from the site.
You CAN, however, complain to RootsWeb or Ancestry's helpdesk (depending
upon where you saw the flashing ad. They ARE responsive to complaints about
ads but you need to give them specific information about when and where you
saw the ad and what it was advertising and supply a link TO the ad if
possible (you can obtain the URL by clicking the link if you are willing to do

Hello to the list. Flashing ads annoy me so much I cover that part of
the screen with a piece of paper, and vow to avoid that advertiser.
I'm fortunate that it's only annoyance, not seizures.

Not unless they get a number of complaints. Here's mine. Cheers, Dolly
