Or did those "featured resources" just start popping up taking up half the monitor space above the message board?

Annoying.

Yes, they have a clever marketer here on MTBR. My pop-up blocker catches most of them, but the first time I visit the site for the day I still get one that blows through.

Interesting...

The reason I asked is because I haven't changed anything but today was the first time the stuff started loading up. Now it is only intermittent. I was wondering if it was new.

Oh well, maybe it's just a tech thing and they are fiddling with it.

Yep. I'm surfing through Firefox and I still get pop-ups. I can live with it.

I use firefox w/ adblock and haven't seen any in a long time.. sure you don't have spyware? that stuff can make popups show up no matter what.

*If you are a windows user, microsoft has an excellent spyware remover / blocker available on their website. That and Ad-aware's newest keep PCs nice and clean.

He's not talking about pop-ups in new windows. He means that list of links that appears at the top of the forum. I just started getting it today using Safari, I haven't tried any other browsers. I'd rank it as pretty annoying.

Naaah...

It's not a popup window, if that is what others are seeing. It's just a bunch of advert links that show up between the Jericho ad header and the Forums Navigation. They never appeared before this morning, now they do sometimes. Wierd.

I am on a Mac running Safari, so 99% it's not spyware or anything suspicious...

Same for me with Safari. I'm not very impressed.

Exactly!

Dave, now YOU are picking up what I'm layin down!

Why Safari, and why now? Ideas? Is this something that others have always seen and we Macs have been spared? Or is this a sign of sucky things to come for other browsers?

Ha, that would be a first. "Let's make it run in Safari, then we'll tackle Explorer!" =)
