Default Pop Up Ads on Talking Travelers?

What's up with this Opinion Mart pop-up ad that is hiding behind Talking Travelers every time I close it out? I know an attempt was made to eliminate invasive ads on the site, but thought I'd let someone know that this one is lurking somewhere behind the scenes, constantly. It's kind of irritating.

Thumbs down

Irritating is not the word I'd use. Nauseating is more like it.

We hate them too! We have no idea how they got here, and are in the process of updating the site and removing them. Unfortunately, it's not as easy as it sounds. Whoever embedded them did a really good job -- we are going to take down TalkingTravelers and reinstall the software.

I don't get them, but I use an ad blocker. Is it possible that one of the ads is providing this "service"?

No ad blockers here ... but no popups either. Using Firefox if that matters.

Chris, thanks for being on top of this once you knew about it. We really appreciate that.

I don't get them either; it's appears the only opinions they care about are Deano's and Ned's.
