I have an account and a terrible memory! I was snatching five minutes on mumsnet to read up on toddler beds only for this awful pop up to appear prompting me to log in. Having forgotten my pw I couldn't at the time. Not only was it in the way it prevented me opening the next page! On my laptop a pw change is easy but I my phone it is difficult as outlook disables the link and the copy paste control doesn't present the scrolling handles so copying it is a pain too. Probably just me but agrrrr!

Grr, same here......i generally just browse and hate leaving anything logged in on any device....

Guess it's worked though because I've had to remember my password and log on just so I could complain about how annoying it is! grin

Urrrrgh totally agree. I often just have a browse without logging in, it is very annoying that you now have to join/ log in to even just read the forums!

I stated a page in site stuff so log all your moans there.if you get the chance.

I think that it started about the same time as the iPhone and ipad app. It's got a bit better recently in that you get to read 1-2 pages before it pops up .
