Don't like them. Very off-putting to using the forum.

Just ignore them and don’t click on them . I assume it makes the site free to use 🤔

I've got a cupboard full of viagra as a result. Should see me right for a while.

It's not something we've brought in so must be a change to Ads by Google that's making it happen.

We'll look into it

In safari settings on an iPhone there’s a ‘block pop-ups’ option. Depending which browser everyone’s using trying something similar to that could help.

SF is the only site I visit where this is happening at the moment. Started last week, I hadn't changed any software on phone or pc. If I am now out of date so be it. But I was curious as to whether just me or some deliberate (or inadvertent) change by SF site design.

Ad blocker isn’t blocking it though that’s the thing.

Im using Google Chrome with the AD Block extension - ive never seen this ad until today when I went to check in Incognito mode 

Had no problems on the phone either with the standard Safari app (no settings changed)

Hope this helps

They seem to have gone now. Much obliged (either SF mods or the internet gods).

Got a skimpily clad lass come up on my screen earlier.

Don't mind trying to be sold some nifty daps, but if Mrs Chips happened to be strolling by I suspect I'd be on the naughty step with the lady one.

There’s also one that offers to clean your Mac - an ad not a skimpy lass and it refers to Apple products.

Any idea what screening these ads have? Most pop up ads for IT stuff tend to come with huge risks, you’d imagine.

Usually the ads relate to what you’ve been looking at.

I've taken some screen shots. I could send you some?

Today's seems to be chopping and cooking some sort of mushroom pie. Not sure what that means.

Edit-and someone selling what looks like tap fittings and some sort of compound to store farmyard animals ( in German). Handy.

Correction...it's Dutch

This thread could take on the mantle of past classics such as Haydn’s conservatory.

Actually I watched it for the full 12 seconds ( for evaluation purposes) and she's selling some flowery scented stuff that I don't recognize.
I feel I'd like to watch again to be sure, but I'm back to the tap fittings now.
