You don't need to mention me in this thread, got it subscribed so I get notifications anyway. ^^;;
Will follow it up. As always though, remember that it's very difficult to track these down without tracking down the URL it's trying to send you to.
The URL posted is a copypasta of the URL of the popunder I got. Is that what you mean?
Quite often if I'm not logged in to Bulbanews an ad will block alot of the text in the article I'm viewing.
It doesn't seem to happen anymore, I think this is either because the Bulbanews articles' sizes were changed, or it has already been fixed. So forget I ever said what I said before...
I was browsing Bulbanews and got a three stooges expander. It started at by first rising from the bottom of the screen, then expanded into a trailer. I was unable to get screen shot, but I did get a url. http://www.threestooges.com/#/home It originally took me to double click net, then to the url I posted above.
Please be aware everyone, there's a difference between an "expander" and a "pop-up". Some expander ads you might see are actually legitimate as far as we're concerned. So it's really important that you get screenshots for those as well as the URL. Some expanders are too intrusive and are removed if they get added (and that one described above sounds like it would fall into that category), but others are much more benign (for an example, an ad that expands to a size a bit bigger than the sig images on these forums would be acceptable in most cases, depending on placement).
I just want everyone to know also that we're soon going to be implementing mobile ads, so that those users on mobile devices won't have their experience ruined by what are on their screens relatively huge ads.
Well if someone can tell me how to get a screen shot here, then all go and find that ad again. I know how to take screen shots, but I don't know how to make them show up here.
See the attached pictures to see what the thing looks like.
Thanks for the advice Werdnae
While I have yet to find the stooges one again, I did find this one. While I'm not sure if it's bad or not, it seems similar to some of the other ones I've seen reported here. The link took me to http://green.grabgiftsonline.com/SplashPage.aspx?g=e0c028e3042c4cf28c3c102f16b29ae5&nm=01wgdfe6krxhar&s=459&se=51 Because the ad did have my actual location on it, I covered it up, or rather I shot it up.
I came across a small video for Delta Air Lines that pops up in the bottom right corner. It's about 15 or so seconds and has an X to make it disappear, but I didn't know if you wanted those types of video ads.
