    I clicked on it to get rid of it, like one of those flashing ones you used to get pop up saying congratulation you are a winner

    Some browsers might not show them, I don't see adverts if I am on the PS3 for instance

    Ran Malewarebyes, all clear, the advert was for prize world, had small cars around the border of it.

    Ok. Seems an odd advert to get. I'd also run superantispyware, see if that gets rid of any tracking cookies.

    Not keen on any adverts, mind you I don't go out of my way to avoid them anymore.

    Don't worry: we told them scam ads would slip through and they didn't believe us then either. :sad:

    Yes blatant click bait and we can't all be the 1 000 000th visitor. I suspect the ASA might have something to say on this one.

    I understand the need to have some limited advertising in order to fund the site, but surely this one is past the boundary of good taste?

    I could be wrong, but I don't think Shaun gets to choose what adverts people see.

    The only advert that doesn't have the option to dismiss it though.

    I was surprised they were allowed. I found and blocked them several days ago; thanks for reporting them.

    Cheers,
    Shaun :biggrin:
