Having seen two of my friends websites which they set up as a free account, I thought I'd go with their supplier because their sites were quite impressive as far as I was concerned. All worked beautifully and I was very happy, but suddenly a huge flashing add told me I was a winner of something. The flashing became permanent and distracted me. So intrusive I had no desire to work on the contents of my new site.
I asked my friends how they avoided the adds. They both said they had not encountered this problem. Their sites were add free. After a day or so, I couldn't stand the flashing anymore, so I just deleted the site. It feels sad. It's a why me? situation. :)
