    I got this today...

    I had some windows open as you can see, but none had been active for a while and I trust the others not to serve anything like this.

    I'll try to grab the relevent details next time...

    p.s If this is intentional (which I don't think it is but IF) I urge you to reconsider, I will never use a site that pops-up things in the middle of my screen. Regardless of how valuable a resource it is or how relevent the ad is.

    I haven't seen the advert but from looking at their website View Your Cookies Information | Safecount you can see what adverts from the company you have seen. This might be helpful.

    I dont block any ad's either, but yeah some people will get annoyed with that one.

    The ad seems to have come from IDG which is whom look after the ad's for edugeek so i am sure ZH/DB will let them know.

    I had the same one earlier, didn't take a screenshot thou - I hope it's not intentional of edugeek, and is just one of the advertisers maybe overstepping the mark slightly. Regardless of how much revenue it might generate the site, this sort of advertising really irritates me.

    I saw this earlier. It appears to be a US focussed ad, and shouldn't be appearing here, if at all as we don't allow pop overs, so please bare with us as it will be at least Monday afternoon until the as peoplin the states are in work. I ronically, our UK ad manager is over there to meet them for us this week!

    Got the Evony advert again just. Clicking it sends me to

    http://ads.glispa.com/sw/10786/CD384...AADQAAAAAAAAA=

    Which redirects to

    Welcome to Evony

    EDIT: And a different one...

    http://ads.glispa.com/sw/10786/CD384...AADQAAAAAAAAA=

    which goes to - Welcome to Evony

    I have added a large amount of addresses now to try and prevent that nasty site so *hopefully* it wont reappear.
