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?

Right <puts BIG nixing gloves on> We'll sort ASAP.

Yes it's back for me too

At the top of the page on AIBU

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 05-Jun-13 15:09:33

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

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

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

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.

it was on the top ad bar

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

We'll investigate.

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

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

Me too.

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

And me.

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

It's there for me too now.

Pascha Wed 22-May-13 08:49:04

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

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!

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

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

WorraLiberty Wed 22-May-13 08:45:03

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?

BigStickBIWI Tue 21-May-13 08:57:01

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.

TippiShagpile Tue 21-May-13 08:54:34

I had the spied advert this morning too.

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