Well... the issue with popup adverts is that nobody from iRV2 administration or moderation has the authority to make them go away. Social Knowledge LLC makes these determinations. That said, the advertising revenue generated here, annually, is under 6 figures (about $70,000, IIRC). Fractions of a penny per advert.
As Lori said, try a search and adopt whatever measures provide a less-intrusive experience.
