Default What's with the Potemkin Auto Ad taking over my screen?

There's an auto ad that was on the bottom of a thread page and as I was writing my rely, anytime my mouse went near it it popped up into a huge ad that filled the screen and had to be clicked off in two places.

My pop-ups are blocked in Safari, so what's up? I've never seen this happen before and I had to wrestle with it three or four times before I could get my post written and up.

Anyone else have this happen?

No. That should not be happening. I will definitely report the issue, but we need a screen shot or link to where the ad goes in order to track it down and turn it off. Without either, it can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. Can you capture one of those if you see it again? I'm sorry for the trouble!

Those ads can follow you around so it's not necessarily from our site - we don't allow pop up/expandable ads here.

If you can either right click and copy the URL or click on it and give us the destination URL we can verify that it's not coming from us.

I don't see it now. Will do as you suggested if I see it again. I didn't think you guys would allow that kind of ad.

sigh. I hate these problems that are only happening to me!
