I just gotta say. The Advertisement Server has gotten really cuddly lately. Real people actually responding to problematic ads. I've got a bad feeling about this...
I got a particularly nasty rogue antivirus from the adserver here last night. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what ad caused this — I'm pretty sure it was open in a tab when it happened and I hadn't looked yet. The reason I'm sure it's from TV Tropes is that I only just disabled adblock here the other day, and it's not disabled on any other sites.
Thanks for the report. Unfortunately, we need a little more than that to do anything.
The best part about bitcoin is that you get to watch libertarians slowly discover why financial regulations exist to begin with.
Anime-tedI'm getting an ad that's popping up a "IE has blocked this website from displaying content with security certificate errors" message. The site is http://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/simgad/14711924889763968069 (the numbers after the last slash change every time this pops up)...I can't actually see the ad, just the window on the side.

Thanks. Problem reported.
You gotta get yourself some marble columnsMessage popped up on Everything You Wanted to Know About Changing Names:
tvtropes.org contains content from 22.214.171.124, a site known to distribute malware. Your computer might catch a virus if you visit this site.I went back and it was fine, so presumably it's one ad.

Hug an Umbreon. They make great hats, and can even block mind-reading!
Thanks. I'll forward the report.
RoninThough my antivirus didn't catch it from this site, I have seen the pop-up that leads to it appear in several pages here (the Daring Do page, being the most recent). Xvid Setup.exe Detected: not-a-virus:Ad Ware.Win32.Screen Saver.e 2/18/2012 2:57:12 AM url is http://origin-ics.fivemillionfriends.com/IC/GPLAppBundler72/33456/0/b651c224-3600-4a57-bc18-26a37beb17da/ Not sure if it's something from my end or not, but just in case, I'm giving you the heads up.

Thanks. If you do see that popup again, please get a print screen. It will help them track down the miscreant.
D=<I just had a file try to download while I was browsing the YKTTW: Screenprint◊ - the adverts you can see in the screenprint were the only ones on the page. EDIT: I got the same prompt just now on the message list. The "Explore Insight" advert seems to be the one the two pages have in common. EDIT: Again; and the same thing happened when I posted the above edit.

Anime-tedThread moved to Tech Wishlist and Bug Reports since that forum is now clearly designated for reporting this kind of problem.

^^Thanks for the report. I've forwarded it to the ad provider.

A Wizard boyOff-topic, but why is this thread clocked?
Anime-tedI was wondering that myself...I hope I didn't clock it by accident yesterday after I moved it, because I sure didn't mean to if I did.
I see the Awesomeness.Should the buglist thing from FAQ be moved here?
A Wizard boyI think that both Common TVTropes Bugs and How to Fix Them and Screwed up custom titles to fix could fit here, but enough of this derail - I'll holler.
I have a problem: at certain pages (like the quotes section of Call a Rabbit a "Smeerp") the page changes into the 'sign up' screen of a site called Badoo after a few seconds. this is really annoying: I can't read those pages anymore, because if I do alt+left, it just happens agian. this isn't normal, is it?
A Wizard boyIt's always good to take screenshots. Makes it easier to fix.
^^I think you need to run a tool like AVG. It sounds like your browser has picked up a little virus.
Here's a shot.◊ Is this normal?
No, it is not normal. What browser are you using?
