Here is a question for one of you who may know how to help. Every time I post something I get a popup side bar on the left hand side of the screen that cheers me on, and says I only need a few more posts to make a specific number like it’s some sort of milestone…. I hate that, and I want to slap the idiot who came up with it. I view it as unwanted spam, and I’d like to be able to turn it off.  I know I shouldn’t be complaining about a free service, but this stupid bar serves no purpose other than an irritation?
