    Default Anyone getting pop-up ads on here?

    I've gotten a couple random pop-ups (yes, work has a blocker) when I open the occasional thread. I have never noticed that happening on this forum before.

    Anyone else?

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Yeah, I am. I'm getting pop ups from sites like

    ad.yieldx.com
    di1.shopping.com
    image.shopzilla.com

    when I browse through beyond. You can see requests being made to some of these sites (and more) especially in the marketplace, such as the Cellular section.

    Had it about 3 times, usually in the marketplace section. Thought it was just me and it really only happens here on beyond.

    I just had one! It was a dinosaur or something... didn't keep it open long enough to see what it was advertising.
