Default Pop up add

I am getting a pop up add on my ipad using safari. Really annoying. I hope this is not going to become common? It gets in the way of using the forum.

Is it a survey from survey monkey? I'm getting it to on my Mac/Chrome

And there is a preference in Safari to block pop up ads.

I wish the greenies could remove these pop up ads as fast as they've whacked some of the more colorful members in here.

Thanks for another jab Wills. Contrary to popular belief, i don't have those kind of powers. I have the power to edit the content of the forum, that's it.

Obviously from the previous posts, it's a problem that even moderators are having. If it was within my control, I'd a taken care of it by now. Sorry to disappoint.

Thx for your answer, how did you take that as a JAB? It was meant to have a little humor not to offend anyone

My bad then. Sometimes it's hard to read the feelings behind a post in this text format. For that I apologize.

Regarding the issue. I just reported this thread to bring it to the attention of the site admin. I'll make sure they are aware of the issue, and if there is something they can do I'm sure they will. It's annoying as hell for me also.

IMO, this is obviously something to do with apple making even MORE money off the ipad.

use another browser. I have not seen anything with Dolphin. Although the WW says she's not getting them with her safari . . . . yet.

Yes, but for some reason, I'm not seeing fish shapes like Dean. I get the pink elephant ones.

I got the fish also last week on the iPad. Been on my phone the whole time in St Louis, so it has not been an issue lately.

Never mind my previous post, I'm a little slow right now.
