Default Am I the only one?

I am sure that David has no control over that add up in the right corner, but today I noticed that some of the ads were NOT appropriate.



Like this one.

It does not really bother me, but other members might be offended.

I don't get any pop ups on CF are you sure you don't have a tracker in your cookies thats executing them on web pages like CF, Do you get pop ups on other sites? make sure you have a good ad blocker, delete temporary INTERNET files and cookies just to be on the safe side, Run disc clean up and a antispyware program to see if it picks up any tracking cookies.

Lol, this isn't a pop up. It is the ad that is in the top right corner. Everyone has it, it is the one add on this site that is plainly visible. If you look at my post you will see where it is.

Well, right now scroll up as far as you can. The look at the computer forums logo. Then look right of it. There is the ad. It switches all the time, sometimes it is really inappropriate.

I don't block ads and I've never saw that one. Maybe it's coming from your surfing habits? haha.

I never get ads when i'm on CF except for a iMonetize ad at the bottom of the page, which I never really notice unless someone points it out for me.
