Ads

The past few days, I'm getting ads across the bottom of the screen. Any ideas why?


This is the only website that it occurs on.

"Past few days"? I've been getting those for 7 or 8 months. The site owner has decided to put those slide up ads on the bottom of the page to help better monetize the website.

You can use the down arrow top far left to make the ad sink back down but in my experience they just come back up on the next page load.

Adblocker Plus here. Don't see any ads.
Also have Ghostery and no tracking.

(RVM-14) It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

I am logged in and see this large slide up ad on the bottom border of the browser.

Can you:
1. Take a screen shot
2. Click the x to dismiss?

I am fairly certain that you will not see it again for a long while after that.

On my browser after dismissing the ad by clicking the down arrow it comes back when viewing the next thread. If I stay in the thread I was in when I clicked the down arrow the ad stays away. But it returns as soon as I move to a new thread.

Iíll get you a screen shot later.

Installed Adblocker and no more ads. Set it up for this site only, since no other sites have the problem.

Here’s the ad on my Safari. You can see how intrusive it is.

Clicking the down arrow to dismiss doesn’t last very long at all. Maybe two page loads.
