This place has gone commercial.

A few days ago, I was greeted with a big pop-up when I logged on. Now I have a PM in my box advertising a product. Starting to creep me out. I know this place is owned by a large company that earns $$ for banners and Google links, but it's getting a bit thick.

...and I think you are right about the pop ups, they can be annoyin but I really think for the most part the site is alot better lately and there hasnt been any of the on here like there has been in the past, so I find it has been refreshin for a change

And Ironically non of it is from Starbucks?

I find this very odd.

09' Ice Blended Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino
10' Venti Mocha Latte spilled some of it, was too hot
11' Peppermint Mocha W/Extra Shot of Espresso
12' Eggnog Venti Latte
13' Bagel
14' Standard Drip (since a Venti latte went up 20 cents)
