    ar dot voicefive dot com keeps trying to do pop ups in the forums. Don't know more because my browser blocks them. Just an fyi. smile

      Pop up surveys are one of the only such ads permitted on the site.
      You may occasionally see these, but they shouldn't happen on a regular basis.

        Next time a voicefive URL pops up, I'll let them through and chat with them. smile

          I would not recommend letting them through. This is not one of the pop up surveys that Matt refers to. I just did some Google research on this and it seems to be malware that takes over your computer if you allow it.  It's good that you have a pop up blocker. Leave these things blocked!

            How do I block them? There are two full length movies playing at the bottom of my screen right now! So irritating. I thought I was hearing voices.  I believe I unblocked them recently when I updated something. Ugh!

              I've got one of those videos trying to break through right now.

              It breaks in; browser shuts it down; it breaks in again; browser shuts it down again; ad infinitum.

                +1 No audio now, just the movie. Are you getting a soccer game?

                  I don't remember. Right now I'm getting a moving video about Lysol and Mucinex.

              Ads should not be auto-play videos, especially with sound. Capture a screen image and report them to HubPages.

            Thanks! Doing a search for "ar.voicefive.com" does indeed show extremely grim results. Too much risk; me thinks I will indeed pass.
