    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

    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.
