FAO Runners World people.

I am just trying to access the site and appear to be being spammed, with an incessant advert for Bose headphones in the most obnoxious form of advertsing ever.

Well its certainly had the desired affect on me ... I was in the market for some new headphones (those ones that loop round your ear don't get on well with mucking about with the dogs!!)  and now after that wonderful piece of intrusive crap Bose are firmly the LAST place I will ever by from.

I'm getting it too.  I keep closing it, but the damn thing comes back everytime i scroll up and down.

I clicked through and left the Bose website open on another tab. Didn't bother me again.

Once I'd signed in it stopped appearing.  Very irritating before that, though, and most definitely put me off Bose headphones!

Perhaps we should let Bose know how we feel?

Yeah, sod off Bose.

Likewise! My next set of headphones won't be Bose for sure now.

I contacted them through their website to tell them what I thought. 

They wanted me to give my address, just to give them feedback about their advertising, so I told them what I thought of that, too!
