No but this site has gotten really long on the load time, and that is even on my desktop now.

I've also noticed I am getting video ad's playing inside the threads now.

This. Sometimes, some threads won't finish loading, which is annoying, as I typically open up several tabs together and only read them once they have fully loaded.

Mac + Chrome + ABP = trouble-free viewing. No pop ups and no bs of any kind. Well, you know what I mean.
Also +1 on the malwarebytes for you windows people.

Sorry about this guys, sent a request to Vizu today to take their pop ups and go back to the dark cave from whence they came.

Can you get a screen shot next time it comes up? Which thread did you get it in?

We are hurting here in Cali... buy some cheese.

Jk. If you happen to see it again please grab the URL of the thing and we can block it faster. I will have the guys look through and see if any partners fit that description.

I got the milk one, so I did some investigating. It pops up when you roll over a banner ad at the bottom of the screen. Doesn't appear to pop up otherwise.

Popup ads from Vizu happening again today. One was a "survey" for some resort, the other the TD Ameritrade one as posted above.

They slide across the bottom of the screen (L-R) and then zip back to center. Makes page loading very slow until they stop moving.

Nolan got back to me about the pop ups. He should have that add company removed from MT.net. At most you will need to flush your CACHE and then you should be good. If anyone else continues to get the popups please let me know, from what company they are advertising for, what threads you got them on, and any screen shots if you can get them.

This also means we can't support the site. I would like to support it and am about to whitelist MT.net again since it sounds like IB have finally gotten rid of the goddamn popups I've been bitching about for months

Just got a new popup "survey" from VOICEFIVE floating in the middle of my screen.
Make it go away, please.
