When logging into the SOL forum or any branch of it, I keep getting add popups. It takes three times as long to get to the page as anywhere else on the internet! I know that Tim S. advertises with popups on the upper right hand corner of the page. This just started happening about a week ago. I am getting a ad that show ad22@doubleclick.net that shows up. I was going to PM you Tim S. I forgot how to do that. So I decided to post this and see if any other members are experiencing this and if so just accept it.

There are no popups used here - ever - I promise - never - none - zero - nada.

 

 

I'll say it again - there are no popups used here - ever HappyWave.gif

 

 

There's an ad in the upper right corner - it's not a popup, it's just a regular banner ad. If ANYTHING pops up on your computer screen, it is not coming from SOL, I promise.

 

 

It sounds like spyware or shareware causing the popups you are getting - it seems to be a common practice these days is getting folks to install software on their computer and then serving them popup ads - it's dirty advertising and we would never do it here, I promise.

Thanks Tim, you are right I believe it is spyware. I also post on the political forum and the old town tavern. To say the least the feathers on my flies are not the only ones I deal with that are being ruffled. I better watch how I reply and post. There are some sore spots out there, that take some things I say with a grain of salt.
