Is this really the sort of advertising that you want?

I've screen captured a strap advert that keeps following me around the site..
It's at the top of my profile.

Is this really the sort of thing you want on your site?

It's also popped up as a square ad on the right of the screen . Persistant little bugger.

Thanks. We're doing our best to isolate and nix it.

Thanks. Have just spotted it. We're on the case.

Just wanted to say that I just saw the 'Spied' ad.
I took a screen shot fwiw

I had the spied advert this morning too.

Bloody annoying and it has the look of a virus type thing about it.

It's Ad Choices, isn't it? I hate the bloody things and I really wish Mumsnet weren't allowing them. I think it cheapens the site, as well as some of them looking really dodgy.

I have had that one on the top of my page several times today/yesterday as well, by the way.

I had the '2 friends spied on you' ad again this morning at the top of the page.

Interestingly, it disappeared as soon as I logged in?

WorraLiberty Wed 22-May-13 08:45:48

Oh, it's on the right hand side of the page now.

BigStickBIWI Wed 22-May-13 08:47:36

Well I'm logged in, and it's at the top of my screen now, ironically at the top of this thread!

It was there for me a minute ago too, at the top of active convos.

derektheladyhamster Wed 22-May-13 08:50:41

It's there for me too now.

CherylTrole Wed 22-May-13 09:00:06

And me.

SaskiaRembrandtVampireHunter Wed 22-May-13 09:06:34

Me too.

It's on the right side of the page for me too now.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 22-May-13 09:29:58

Oh no! Not sure how that's happened as we definitely blocked it last week.

We'll investigate.

it's back, but i was able to block it

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 22-May-13 17:20:23


UnChartered Wed 22-May-13 17:53:20

it was on the top ad bar

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 22-May-13 17:54:55

OK, just so you know what's happening and don't think we're a lot of incompetent losers, it appears that, as fast as we block this ad, it appears again with a different "booking" name - until we block that one. <sigh>

We are on the case, though. Honest.

UnChartered Wed 22-May-13 18:04:38

the google ads are there as well, but they are real ads iygwim - the 'remove malware' ad is loud and proud again

<Helpfully hands Ruby some new waterproof (gasp) elastoplast to block the offending area of the screen> wink

Thank you
I took Nicholas' advice and I haven't seen it since grin
Although I feel that's cheating a bit.
