Have to log on, then it won't show. Or add a script blocker to your browser, but then a lot of other stuff won't work either unless you give it permission, more effort than logging on once. That help popup is really annoying if all you want to do is see if a thread you're watching has any more posts before logging on. They should change it to just one popup per site visit, kill it or open another page and it's done; lot of other sites do that, all they need for first time visitors.

Default Anyone else getting this pop up.

There was some talk of this pop up in the Evo section a while back. Seems to be popping up more and more. Anyone else getting this or is all the college girls bopping sites coming back to haunt me.

Use Norton Ad Blocker. It’s not from **** sites. Only here.

Need pop-up blocks on "all" electronic devices to clear these annoyances (PC. laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.). Google w/ABP never fails me...plus, I run anti-malware & AV scans continuously.

This is the only commercial (I.e. supposed to be “managed”) site I get this crap on. “Management” had told me each of the many times I try to tell them that it’s not normal for a proper site, to “get a pop up blocker”. Which really means, we’ll fix it when we get around to it, so in the mean time, mitigate it yourself.

They do eventually find the offending ad or malware, so when this comes back, seemingly monthly, I basically just stop visiting the site for a few days and they eventually fix the issue.

Yup. I've complained several times like Mchad.

I'm almost exclusively mobile when visiting here and have been having good luck with Firefox + ublock origin add on. You might have to update the definitions in the addon occasionally but it works.

i get no ads.

ABP, ghostery, and kaspersky(so, it works) on pcs

ABP and adaway on mobile devices.

but... why don't you want a $1000 amazon gift card?

if you wanna see something really creepy, use firefox and the lightbeam plug-in. the evils of the net will be on full display. part of the reason i refuse to use facebook with my real name/accounts or much at all.
