Question Is the advertising something that we have to have here, something that is optional, or actually a hack attack?

How odd! As soon as I posted that I seems to have disappeared!

It was the sort that places links on keywords on the front page that gave pop-up boxes if you placed the mouse over them.

I know I saw them, because I checked. They were on "magic" and "race" and a couple of other words I can't remember. I don't know if I was logged in or not, but they were most definitely there. Very strange.

EDIT: I've just checked while not logged in. They are on "magic", "race", "uncharted" and "technology". I presume this is a free forum and it's their way of funding the operation...

I've been a guest, an admin and a normal member, and such ads did not pop up. I suspect you might have a malware in your PC.

Unlikely, but I'll double check, of course.

Has anyone else experience the same issue other than Cricetus? Please, respond.

No issue. No ads. Can't see shit, cap'n. =)

It just might be malware....I'm perfectly ignorant as to how this would be achieved though. Razz

I suppose I should read the newsletters more diligently. The free forum provider says: we have had ads, but removed them in compensation for the accidental removal of your gallery pictures! For an indefinite period of time.
