I guess my 15 days were up so I was prompted to "Login". Fine. Or so I thought, except for the fact that every time I clicked on the "Login" button, the rectangular banner ad (iTravel 2000 in my case) popped up and blocked the login box. I tried connecting to Chowhound via the home page, via Chow to no avail.
I ended up having to shut down my Mac, re-start and only then was I successful. I'm not even sure if that did the trick or, if it was the fact that the page hadn't finished loading completely when I clicked "Login" that actually saved me.
Very, very annoying.
I couldn't even post that I was having a problem since I wasn't logged in.
I'll be interested to see if anyone else has the same issue.
