    wyoming, closer to nowhere than somewhere.
    It sounds like you got a dl called groupon. It is usually bundled with some other needed program. If your not paying attention you can end up changing your browser, search engine, and of course this piece of crap.

    Chewie's the man.

    yes this is what im talking about, mainly see it on my phone, however even saw it after logging in. Seems to be happening more in the last few weeks.

    Kalaeb- I actually do take offense to this statement. I have been a member here for about a year and thought about supporting the site for Dave until i read about the buyout. I enjoy reading the forum and getting information, especially this forum because the people are nice and more knowledgeable and its an overall good experience, however with that said i have enough things to pay for in the world i dont need to pay for every single thing i do. Also i had no problem supporting Dave on running this site as he did it as a hobby and not really as a business per se. Comments like this really are void, paying or not im still a member here and contribute to this forum with passarounds, givng knives to people who need them etc.

    But i run adblock as well so on my personal computer i dont get them very much i was just curious because the statement i read was that nothing was going to change on the forum however it seems thats not the case. Was just curious if others were experiencing the same thing.

    I believe a promise was made when the new owners took over that there would be no ads. I use adblock so I haven't seen any, but if there are ads on the site now, I have to conclude that a promise was broken.

    They only appear when I'm browsing on my tablet. Suuuuper annoying AND pointless. Nobody here is going to click any of that crap.

    I saw these awhile back (maybe a year?) but it had to do with my computer and something I downloaded, not the forum.
