I could understand if they were Yellow Lines then we would have to pay if we stopped on them, but Blue Lines we dont ;)

Hi Trystan,

Is the experiment going to last long, it is quite annoying. Will there be a vote on it?

Haven't gone to the link - thought I'd post first and then check if I had the right idea.
When I first saw them yesterday, I hovered found a pop up ad. tried a few more to see if they were different and then thought - if this is going to remain FREE we/they need to generate income and I think it's a bl**** good idea.

I'm quite fond of them but I do have to go out of my way to hover my mouse and get the pop ups, so I can't see any problems whatsoever.

I don't think Trystan has to take a vote on anything, Tom.  Trystan and Sarah very kindly let us use their site for free.

I totally agree with what you have said, we dont go to other sites on the web that have adverts or popups and ask if we can vote on it. ???

Is there a technical reason for the links being underlined twice? they would not be quite so intrusive if it was just the name or words in blue.

I agree with Gadget, we want it to remain free and Trystan has to do what he can to generate income. NO VOTE
