Has anyone else experienced the continuous pop-up advertisements that bombard the readers on this site? What is the solution? I thought I thought I already had blockers set up. I am getting extremely annoyed and frustrated to the point that I hestitate in logging onto this site.

I have never had pop ups from this site. We do have ads on the pages, but we don't have pop ups. Are you sure this is the only page you have open when you get them?

I have been here a little over a year Lisa and am on DC almost every day. I have not seen a popup when I'm on this site ever. I have the pop up blocker which comes with IE 8 turned on. With that I get a yellow bar at bottom of the header when a popup tries to pop up. It gives me the option to see the popup or not. To my recollection I've haven't had a popup trying to pop up when using this site.

I spoke with our advertising manager and verified that we do not have, nor do we plan on having any pop-up ads in the community.

Perhaps you have a virus or spyware that is creating the pop-up ads? A tool I use to clean up spyware is Spybot Search & Destroy:

Give that a try and see if the problem goes away. Best of luck!

I've never seen a pop-up in the 2.5 years I've been using the site regardless of what computer, phone or web browser I'm using. Where are you seeing them? Are you sure they are coming from this site?
