Site Ad problems (On your end)
« on: July 13, 2008, 09:47:49 PM »
I'm honestly positive SWLS is having massive problems of late.  They have some malicious popup ad as a sponsor that has hacked the site.  It redirects you to a 3rd party site that is crap.  Last week a similar occurrence happened that directed to some nair products for woman.  Now another site.  I am pretty sure that it's not my end with the problem.  I would contact Ben since his knowledge would help. 

I am using firefox 3 as a browser.  I understand Princess Lei (PL) and others had a similar problem last week.

It flashed at me too, but my blocker stopped it.

It is not on your end PPWI, it is a site issue.  The redirection problems are an unintended consequence of having sponsors.  We are working to fix it, so please be patient.  I apologize for the inconvenience, the same thing happened to me today.  We will fix it asap. 
I guess we'll just have to adjust

To date I have been fortunate but was redirected today and an annoying whistling is happening along with other just annoying pop ups. 

Very frustrating... :-\

I've pulled Chitika ads off the site, and replaced them with Google. I'm hoping this stops any more ad problems.
