They've made some changes -- is it gone now for you?

That kind of annoying ad is not allowed to be served on the site, so we're back tracking to see who (each ad is a real time auction) has the crappy seller in their network. We've turned on only highly trusted ad partners for now.

I'll let them know. They've been cutting on sources one by one and waiting to see where it's coming in on.

Please read this post from the Sun Belt board:



Quote:Hello, I'm Paul and I'm part of the team that helps manage the advertising on the site. I want to apologize for the annoyance, and thank everyone for their reports.

This creative that sticks to the bottom of the page should *not* be appearing on the site. It seems to be served as part of a standard display banner. We have a debug tool to report bad ads, however I'm not sure it will help because the bad ad is piggybacking on a legitimate one. However I'd like to try anyways. For any of you who are seeing this ad, can you please open this link below? It will add a small badge to the very bottom right hand corner of the page if you scroll all the way down to the footer. If you see the creative again, click the badge and submit a report. Hopefully it will capture enough information to narrow down the source.

Any additional info you can provide like your device, state, etc.. could also be helpful.

Thanks everyone

Can you move the report ad tool higher up the page please? When I got the Root ad, I couldn’t see it until I closed out.
