    Default Do you guys get pop up ads?

    Hey guys. Sorry for starting a thread to ask this. I tried to find a way to simply contact a moderator to ask but I'm not sure how to do that. If anyone can tell me that would be awesome.

    Lately I've been getting pop up ads like crazy on this site. It happens almost every time I click on a thread. I am using Chrome as my browser, and currently using Avast and Microsoft Security Essentials as anti virus/mal/ad etc with active monitoring enabled. I have pop up blocker enabled but keep getting these ads like crazy. The thing is that it only happens on this site. Is there a way to disable this within ECF?

    Sorry for the noobish question but it's making me crazy. Any help would be awesome.

    Hmm, interesting, never had any pop-up ads from/while visiting ECF or even notifications of attempted pop-ups, wonder why some are and some aren't?

    Thought ECF had a no advertising policy, ie the "supporting members" etc kept the site running.

    Once you're in over your head, deep don't matter.

    Supporting members do not receive any ads whatsoever.

    Ok so check this out. After dealing with this annoyance for like a week and a half, I just noticed that these ads have a 'setting' icon just beside the 'x' icon. Out of curiosity and desperation I clicked on the ad's 'setting' icon (hoping for a self destruct option) and whoah! There is a 'suspend ad' option. It allows you to suspend the ad for different duration selections, or forever.

    Oh well. If you guys are getting them check it out. I tried it a few minutes ago and no ads so far.

    I'm on here for hours every day, using Chrome, and I have never had a pop-up ad in the 4.5 years I've been here.
    But then, I'm a supporting member, so maybe that has something to do with it.

    What would I have to do to become a 'supporting member?' I would imagine a form of financial contribution?

    I have been here since Nov 2011 and I can't remember ever having any pop-ups. Just one more thing I love about this place.

    PS: I also use firefox
