    This is something I just got today.
    That's probably someone's signature that is flagged as malware because of a site that is flagged as malware, I'll go there and try and see who it is and if I can fix it.

    Edit: I'm not getting any warning, so it' probably fixed.

    This is what happened this morning, we got a reply from the ad network a couple minutes ago.

    Netseer, a demand partner, has been flagged by Google for malware. What is happening through our tags is that we are making a call to a cookie synch with them on many of our tags. We are disabling that cookie synch which will solve the problem. Importantly, this is NOT exposing your users to malware. We will notify you when the solution has been pushed to all of our servers.

    So yeah as I was saying earlier, lots of people affected: http://www.zdnet.com/netseer-suffers...gs-7000010776/

    Those are ok technically -- they're guides, not gold sellers, so it's legal ><

    Aren't they usually just begging you for your IRL money and then give nothing in return though? Never really heard about these guides being super trustworthy...

    Well, I have no clue if they work or not, but you pay for a guide and get a guide. So it's true that you get the product, whether or not it's useful.

    It's just like the 'pay to learn this diet secret' ads -- would I recommend actually giving them your money? no, but I assume they'll tell you something if you pay them.

    These expanding/collapsing ads really suck anymore. Theres a FPS game one, and a Samsung one.

    Plus im getting a lot of talking ads now, im guessing at the bottom of the screen, because if I hear them, ill just close out firefox and go to another site without looking.

    It was verrrrry nice coming to mmo champ without having to mute my comp and scroll up and down like a maniac trying to read something. Was.

    Can you post a screenshot of the talking ads? I'll bug the ads guys about removing them.

    The expanding/collapsing ads are out of my control, though

    Makes me feel uncomfortable.

    I'm having an Annoying add that automatically play (with sound) since the last ~24h. It's a French add (I'm in France) about some official gambling company (so I guess it's against two of the "forbidden" categories.).

    I had it quite a few time latelly, last time beeing on : http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...4#post20448434

    image of the add (the 3rd one) :



    clicking on it redirected me to :

    Reported it, thanks

    2 Flash advertisements (1 for The Sims, 1 rotating around everything from credit cards to dog dentures - much more annoying) popped up on http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...1#post20465031 as the 12th page loaded (of all new posts in the rogue forum).

    No media are reading as embedded, but this "object" did pop up: http://cloud.nmg.netdna-cdn.com/player.swf ; stands out as both the largest (file size 112.07 KB) to load and the only object.

    I've got two auto-playing advertisements.

    http://i.imgur.com/ZyH3Gkx.png

    I've been getting the White Castle one on several pages, but the Finish shine challenge ad first came up on this page, which is also the page I got the screenshot from.

    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...orting-bad-ads

    The White Castle ad leads to http://www.whitecastle.com/onlineord...=I1_ShareMeals while the Finish shine challenge ad goes to http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004S0DZ64/...17414rg4310-20

    Firefox, latest version, US.

    EDIT: the white castle one just came up again at the bottom of http://www.mmo-champion.com/forums/300-Role-Playing as well as http://www.mmo-champion.com/forums/2...s-and-Feedback

    Seen at http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...a-Style/page69

    First page I had open, probably after refreshing roughly 5 times.
    Google Chrome, newest version, USA.

    The Lysol ad played by itself, and looped, auto audio.

    Keep getting this annoying ad on iPhone that automatically launches iTunes to some game called Candy Crush Saga. Doesn't launch a new window, launches in your current session (ugh)

    http://adtrack.king.com/modules/adTr...candycrushsaga

    That's the URL that pops it I'm not able to debug like desktop chrome version to figure out which ad it is.

  18. #338
    Another auto-starter.

    http://i.imgur.com/8e6T1d2.png

    Found at the bottom of http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...apped-on-Haste, Firefox US, latest version. Led to https://www.53.com/site/personal-ban...g/idtheft.html

    Doesn't even have a "stop" button. You have to actually physically click on it and have it open up a new window for it to stop.

    EDIT: Happened again on the front page. Same location and browser.

    EDIT2: Happened a third time. http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...necraft/page75. Same place, same browser.

    There are a ton of noisy adds now, to the point I can't even stand to use this site. My normal method of browsing is opening a bunch of threads in new tabs then going to them as I read through, but this leads to my ears being blasted by about 6 different ads at once, which is unbearable.

    We hate them as much as you, but I need some information so that our ads people can get them removed -- screenshot and/or url would be very helpful.
