Don't think there is anything wrong with your computer - I get such ads as well, and on several different venues, too.

No, the other one.
I've had the same annoying ad three times now. TV Tropes is off my Adblock whitelist.

That's right. Shoot the horse because you don't like the rider. Howabout telling us which ad you find so annoying and let's see if we can do something about that.

The "Citizen Bank" ads are causing a major slow down for me.

I am not sure what they do with their ads, but its like a media movie or something. I can't even capture it by image or code because it slows down the browser and my computer to crawling speed.

Since the other ones are Mookie, I will assume these are related.

Those all behaved well for me. What browser are you running?

I don't believe I am having issues with other ads because I saw this on another site and again the same slow down happen but the other ads didn't. And I scanned my computer too and have no alerts.

Cool. Okay, I'll go ahead and report it to the ad supplier. Like I say, works fine for me, but there may be alchemy at work with cookie interactions.

Thank you.

It might be a cookie thing, but I view it as a SWF issue. I've been trying to see if anyone else on the net had a problem, not just with the Mookie part of it.

ETA: I updated my Any outdated plugins to see if that helps.

I don't know where to put this, but I keep getting a pop up and a redirection to a website from Sparkpay I think that they may be an ad on your site.

This is the right place, buddy, but actually, that's the consequence of the outage we had some hours ago. See here forward for the fix.

I submitted Google Adsense feedback on that obnoxious Wartune ad that keeps popping up. The one with the scantily clad girl and the caption, "Your body is my party. Let's get it started."

I saved a screencap and the clickthrough URL is www.wartune.com/cGEx.action?ga=4&cam=Wartune-US&agn=Games - MMORPGs&lp=Di vosagaG022&placement=tvtropes.org&id=205452411145359907&gclid=CNSKhu2r9bYCFdCZ4 AodjggA0A

That is a bad ad? Huh, I thought that sort of ad was pretty normal...

[up] There have been more risque ads for that game visuals-wise, but it's the combination of the imagery and the suggestive tagline that push it over the top. It's ironic that Google's a big reason why we have to police ourselves for content as tightly as we do but they run ads like this with impunity.

You should see the ads on Evony.

I browser keeps blocking me from this site because it says its detecting malware from a site called w-ads.eqads.com. Had to resort to blocking off all ads altogether to even make this post.

Spell-check fail. -_- I meant to type "MY browser."
