Default Pop Ups and Ads issues

Really not sure where to ask this...so I hope I a in the right place

When I open a thread and click "Last Page" in that thread I get this, should I be worried?

There is most likely no need to worry,
I will ask that a technician take a look at this post,
I will relay the response.

That's a factual and thorough report. Thanks very much for the helpful and constructive feedback.

Unhappy Wonnie

Am confused. The rules state we should not post anything political and I definitely agree. So why am I being bombarded by political messages and being told how to vote on certain issues?

i think you will have to be much more specific to what your situation is. I have not seen any other members posting about this.

Well, Nan, don't know how much more specific I can be. Today couldn't tell you how many times I clicked on something and VOTE NO ON ISSUE ONE appeared and on occasion Barack Obama appears with a message.

Patrice said that she will report that to the technical area. But could you please tell us what you click on when you get the pop ups, what browser you use [Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.] and what you use as a virus protection program? Thanks.

Default I just got 2 ***sound ads*** on the QB!!!

Was reading a post and heard the most atrocious music. Scrolled the page and found an ad in the bottom left corner of the screen that was a video! Turned it off, but then another one came on right after it! I may have to turn the sound off on my computer while reading the QB now. This was distressing!!!

This happened to me a few months ago. Let one of the moderators know -- it is my understanding they are not supposed to be running that sort of ad.
