I run a free program called addblockerplus. It's great. Even YouTube videos don't show the commercials when they start.

Thanks for reporting back. I have never seen a pop-up ad on this site since its inception in July 2010.

There should never be any pop up ads here...only vendor/supporter ads at the top and Google ads at the bottom.

I don't get any pop ups on either my home or work computers or my Kindle.

I just had an experience where my message about SOG knives contained an ad.
I thought it was related to the SOG website because they use the same popup.
I removed the link and it is still there. When I don't logon as a just guest, no ad.
Ran a Malware scan and nothing turned up.
