    Why Am I Suddenly Starting to Get Hit With Pop-Up Ads?

    I haven't done a thing to my filter and yet I've been getting them the past couple of days.

    I got a few on my home computer this morning immediately after I logged on. Then they went away. I have not seen any since about 8 am today.

    Yeah, I got it just after I left the home page and haven't had one since...and I just noticed that I said "adds" in stead of "ads"...and it wasn't on purpose this time...

    I had one pop up on my phone this moring and I couldnt dismiss it. My only option was to click "OK". I had to go into settings and delete cookies and browsing history and it went away.

    If you use the right browser with the right extensions, no pop-ups and no screaming ads
    Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

    I think Chrome may have caught up to it since I've had none since logging in.

    Your anger makes you strong! You must learn the ways of the dark side by fueling your hatred with pop-ups. CONGRATULATIONS!

    Jon,

    Until you get rid of the pop ups, I am not going to be visiting nearly as much. This sucks...I know you have to make money, but really?????

    I disabled my adblocker for this site a long time ago, but am going to re-enable it if we can't get rid of the popups and stupid "Congratulations, you've won." ads. I don't mind ads as long as they're unobtrusive, and I don't want to take money out of Jon's pockets, but it's pretty obnoxious.
