I do have Safari set to block pop-ups but the site has a red banner ad that pops up from the bottom. Please stop this.
The real point here is that the site should not have pop up ads - not whether users have their browser settings correct.

Did you check the box for 'Minimal Ads' on your profile? I have an iPad and never get any popups.

I have the "normal" ads button checked, yet never see the banner in Chrome on a Windows machine. Perhaps Chrome just has a better ad blocker.

Donno, the owners of the site have to pay for it somehow.

What does the red banner ad say? Is there a chance it is not coming from this site, but from some other service?

I think I got one once or twice from the forum ads. Now let's just hope the sound ads don't return. :?

Matt, thanks for staying on topic. I closed all other tabs and the pop ups stopped.

Donno, some of us were trying to stay on topic, but you didn't give us a lot to work with. If we had known you had multiple tabs open in the same browser at once, we would have seen a red flag.

The following user would like to thank MoapaPk for this post
