I saw a Tmobile pop OUT add if that's what you mean?
It hardly gets in the way, it has a transparent background and a clear 'X' to close it...

There is no pop ups for me and my Norton is currently not on. Strange... The only adverts on the site are the standard ones at the side and top advertising games and other related stuff and that is only on the front page.

Are you sure you haven't got it mixed up with the Ad's on top of the Page?

If you aren't using Firefox, do that. If you are, use SpyBot to get rid of your spyware, because you clearly have some.

when your mouse goes over an ad it POPs up or starts talking, in others stop crying and keep your mouse off the ads

As most people have stated, we don't have any pop-up ads on this site, only bar advertisements across the top.

Some of them are rollover though, and will obviously create a pop-up if you click on them.

Try clearing your pc of spyware, because that brings up ads no matter what site you are on!

It was indeed a spyware O.o (sneaky bastards)

Anyways sorry for the confusion !!! But oddly whatever spyware i had only seemed to create popups when i was at this site .

Only pop-up is at the top of the page.

The only ads I see are the ones at the top of the page, and they aren't that bad are they?

Firefox 3 + Adblockplus+ for future reference. Kills every popup ever.

I gotta say the same that it JUST started happening yesterday, only on this site when I visit it. I all of a sudden get sent to some page for some online stupidass game Travion, an never even see an ad for it on here. I wouldn't think spyware would target just one site out of the countless I visit a day, especially since I clean it up once a week.

Hmm, strange. There should be no pop up/under ads on the site. I've checked all the current ads, and can't see any bad ones in the list.

If you still get them, please PM me the link the pop up takes you to.

The same thing was happening to me. And it only happens on this site.

I was worried someone hacked the site because not only did I get spyware, but my computer got a nasty virus. I just finished cleaning it up the other day and when I try to browse the site I was getting redirected like crazy. It seems to have calmed down a bit but it still happened twice.

I thought is was just me, but since this thread popped up I know thats not the case...plus I also thought it was weird that it was only on this site.

If it happens again to me, I'll be sure to let you know what site it brings me to.

That sucks, fortunate for me though that I have Mozilla and No-Script :) so nothing ever pops-up for me, that word takes me back to the days of IE....ugh it was sooo horrible.
