      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.

                  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.
