The screen saver ad comes in fine but then there is this other ad, some kind of streaming TV? I can't get the whole site but it locks up my firefox every time.

Am I the only one?
I've been watching for that ad you mentioned, but haven't seen anything like it... Do you have a screen shot or what the ad is for??

Nemo has got to go! There is an ad for 3D screensavers that has Nemo flopping around and crying out "Help Me".

It's a sick ad.

Ah no, not that one again! I removed that one months ago, I guess they figured out a way to get it back again. :(

Do you remember what size(s) it is??

While I haven't been able to find the "nemo" help me ad in the past hour looking, I did find a lot of other (a couple dozen) that "talked" once viewed and killed those off. In fact, I've banned the advertisers who offer those automatic "talking" ads.

Once I know more about the new Nemo ad, then I'll be able to find it.

The last couple of times I have been on the Nemo ad did not come up. Funny how that happens.
The ad was about almost 2 inches high and about 8 inches across.

Maybe when you killed the others this just went with it.

I haven't see it since, so I'm going to call it that the ad is "killed". :D

Glad to remove it.

I don't know if it needs to be removed or not.....but....it does not seem to be what it is purported to be.....

I clicked on an ad for adopting teens.....however, there were 2 ads that popped up for other stuff like gambling and winning stuff.....

The ad for the teen adoption agency appears legit....so what's with the other ads popping up after you click the adoptions agency link?

My guess would be the teen adoption site has popups to help fund their oganisation. ?

I can removed the teen adoption agency as if you like me to. Just let me know.

Always happy to get rid of ads that are a problem.

iT'S NOT THE TEEN ADOPTION THING IN ITSELF....whoops..capslock.....it's the fact that after you click on it and get the popups, there is no information about what appeared to be a legitimate thing.

I'd hate for a legitimate organization that fills a genuine need in society to get the boot.....is it possible that the popup people are using a different kind of vehicle to lure people to seeing their ads?

It's possible that popup people are using a different kind of vehicle to lure people to seeing their ads, but the code would have to appear either:

A. In transit to their site (ie. hard-coded in the ad they are showing)
B. The code is on their site (not put there by them) and thus they have a hacked site
C. They put the popup code there themselves.

I can't do anything about A-C, but I can do the D optino (D)elete.

I agree, it's a hard decision to make as it's a legitimate organization that fills a genuine need in society. :D
