I live and work in CH.

It says so on my profile, and my location.

I don't need to know about "thelocal.fr". I also don't need it to take me to some random page when I click to close the pop-up window.

TIA for taking note.
A direct email may get a response

I hate to be such a boring party pooper...but honestly, personally, I don't mind coz we live about 5mins of the French border. So, the local.fr should it ever become a practical source of info, of a region 5mins away, would make some sense. Not that I plan to change sides and play for the other team, but... Still worth the info that might relate to all of us living in the vicinity of FR.
Ah but you know.... there's a love hate touchy feely smelly relationship between zee frenchies and the proper brits that has been going on for centuries
The pop up was bound to raise a ruckus

Re: @ the owners of EF/The Local

The popup makes the site inaccessible with Firefox 6 (maybe related to adblock add-on) The text in the popup doesn't load and the main site remains greyed out. Only way around is to avoid the main page.

Stupid decision from the local. Target an ad at a couple of percent of users which frustrates the rest.

EDIT Discovered that escape key kills the popup

Re: Popup advert for thelocal.fr (The Local France)

It's just rank stupidity. I'm with rob1 - the relevant things are now blocked.

Way to go, guys!

Re: Popup advert for thelocal.fr (The Local France)

I had to laugh at the front page of thelocal.fr - I'd like to think the ads were deliberate for the headlines, tho' somehow I doubt it

Re: Popup advert for thelocal.fr (The Local France)

While very annoying, for me it's not the end, it's not even the beginning of the end, and so on.

But many more jolly japes like this and I'm off .
