Default Ads in links



Saw this in both the electric supercharger thread: https://www.miataturbo.net/insert-bs...9/#post1027975

And the how much for a T25 thread: https://www.miataturbo.net/diy-turbo...ally-go-73704/


If your QA department is hiring, I may be interested

I have not seen any of these. Make sure you don't have any malware or unusual browser plugins that you did not intentionally install.

The lack of crop was to illustrate that the link is an ad.

I have 2 monitors, I cropped out 80% of the image.

OMFG you don't know how to read, I included the link for the first post I saw them, and a link to the page the screenshot is from.


This is my work computer, I don't go on suspect sites with it nor do I have any malicious extensions.

How it Works

This is not malware you idiots, it is more poor QA by IB. I understand that it happens, my job is literally to find bugs. I found one and reported it.

Thanks for your help though.

which is not a post that contains the issue you've described.

Chromium Portable ABP isnt blocking them. I should probably switch back to FFP since CP hasnt been supported in months and FF just came out slightly faster.

I made no accusations, just a suggestion. I have adblock installed as I do for all my browsers, so that is probably why I didn't get them.
