Janet H No joke - no pop-ups here. If you ever see pop-ups we want to know about them, including the URL of the offending ad. Our ads are fed through google and every once and while a bad one slips through. The sooner it's reported, the sooner it's history.

popstop785 Firefox with Adblock plus and you'll never see it. Heck even use NoScript and you'll for sure never see it haha.

Sorry about that. We do some adjusting of the google ads when we see something that doesn't fit. I wasn't aware that google was doing 3d ads now, but doesn't surprise me.

Ahhh, I see now (answering my own question). "Ads by Google"... pretty slick. They are mostly content based upon the website (wranglers/jeeps/cars/trucks/etc in this case). Sounds like google probably filters the ads of any harmful links.

"Ads by Google appear throughout the web on sites that use Google's AdSense program to show ads. We aim to make these ads as useful and interesting to you as possible. Sometimes the ads we show you are based on the content of the page you are viewing. Other times, the ads are intended to reflect your interests which are based on the content of the webpages from participating websites that you've previously visited."

jerryj I got it yesterday scroll all the way to the bottom.

amy Definitely not legit. I was just in the Builder's Corner twice, to see if I got a pop-up like you describe. I even tried logging out to see what I got, but I didn't get anything but the normal ads. Could it be something on your computer, Rastaman69?
11-07-2009 10:30 PM
tiny terror Not legitimate. Could you be a little more specific as to what it said or looked like?

Is this a joke?

I was in the builders area and got a pop up box saying I'm the 10,000th person and to click the box. No way in hell I'm doing that and getting my computer jacked or crashed. Is this legitimate or did you guys get hacked?
