    Default What's up with these ads?

    Did I miss a meeting somewhere?
    What's up with these double-underlined mouse-over words in posts that take you right to a search tool and a bunch of ads? They seem to be random, and cropping up in a lot of different posts.

    Not only that, but right in the middle of reading a post, I got 'jacked to another AD site--for some skin cream!!

    Is there something strange going on in the forum, or what?

    When this gets posted, please note that I did not add any links to other pages. But look at the word "questions" up there in the thread description---that's what I mean. (I hope I'm not the only one who can see it!)

    TwelevePlus members don't see the adds.
    I think it is a way to "help" you decide to donate to Tweleve.

    Not THOSE ads....I don't mind those. I'm talking about the links that are appearing in the posts. In fact, when I logged on this morning and looked at my post, the word "meetings" is underlined twice and takes you to a link off site that is advertising something else. It brings up a pop-up window that links to a Black Dating Service! The logo in the top right of the pop-up says "Ad-Brite."

    This is new. I am not a Plus member. I've seen banner ads and other ads in the forum for a while now. These are new this week.

    They are a necessary evil. Donate once, any amount and never see them again. Thanks.

    I understand the need for the ads.

    However, some of them are inappropriate. Specifically, the pop-up that autoplays a TVMA trailer for some slasher flick. I'm guessing most of us don't want to see that.

    Of course we have the mature ads turned off and the family friendly ads specified but alas something has slipped through the filter. Thank you for the note! I don't WANT you guys to have to look at anything but puzzle content, honestly. Sorry about the slasher ad - let me know if you see any others.
