Is it my imagination or have pop-up ads started appearing when I go to the forums?

I think this might be my final goodbye to Natives if so. It's totally the opposite of what it was set up to do in the first place - a site by seasonaires for seasonaires. But now I can learn these five facts to lose weight. Errr.....

That would explain why i had something for 'Mac Keeper' come on mine when i logged on. I thought it was because my trial had expired, but maybe it was down to me being cookied when i clicked back through to the site, and it's one of those clever 'ad sense' things.

The thing is - if not here, where else?

Haven't noticed it myself, but I've only be checking the forum on my iPad. Have been getting a lot of adverts in German in the header & footer, but that's probably because I'm in Munich.

Nothing for me yet, either. Won't be happy if it happens.
I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

Jacket purchased. New trousers arriving today.

I've gone from wearing an 'M' - which stands for "More likely to shrink after 8 years" to one which is a "Less likely to shrink"

Has anyone who is getting the pop ups contacted someone at natives, or just posted here?

First pop-up today. Not pleased.
