    I actually wondered why so. I'm so rarely read websites and so haven't seen any of these forms!

    Wowowoww!!!

    Aweber is considered to be so useful Ozh. I have not used it personally. But, y this decision to block it??

    Any particular reasons? Can you explain?

    I agree. Thanks for the tip.

    Now, if I could find a way to kill off Google Ads in Gmail, which used to be easily done with a Greasemonkey Script, I'd be an even happier camper. I'm so sick and tired of seeing unrelated and disgusting ads when I read my email. I don't look, but sometimes they total stupidity of the "related" title distracts and I only think negative thoughts towards Google and any company who uses such tricks. I'd rather pay a small fee annually to use Gmail that suffer these stupid ads. Used to pay Hotmail until they got totally spammy.
