Pop up Ads

Pop-up ads are appearing embedded in people’s posts. It just started happening today. Is there a reason for this? There have always been banner ads on the top of the page and in the side bar; I actually tap on them sometimes, but never in actual posts.

JJ, for me, if I'm not logged in I'll get ads in each persons posts, but once I'm logged in as Kaneohegirlinaz then, ads are only on the top banner ,edit - add side bar as well

I recommend installing an ad blocker for your browser. I stay logged in to DC all the time. I never see ads.

I use Adblock Plus (its free).. Have done so for a few years..


I am also logged in all the time... I see no ads at all..


Some of my favorite food blogs do not show videos, etc., if you have an ad blocker.. Adblock Plus has an easily accessible button which allows me to disable it on a particular web site..

Okay, I see what happened. This morning, every time I opened DC in Chrome, a “you’ve won a thousand dollar gift card from Amazon” scam. And I couldn’t close it and get to DC. So I cleared the cookies and history in Chrome. Then when I retried DC, i wasnt logged in anymore. I didn’t realize it until I tried to post.

Everything is fixed. Sorry!

Chrome just got majorly updated two days ago. I'm having some annoyances with it.

I was brought to an adblocker site where you're given choices of paid plans.

Did you really think adblocker would be free forever?

Adblocker made their bones being free. Now they want something in return. Who would have guessed?

I'm just saying I got brought to an AdBlocker site with paid plan options.
