Is everyone else seeing this, or do I have some sort of spyware on my work laptop? Keywords are highlighted all over the place that created annoying pop ups or links. I think you went a bit too far trying to get ad dollars here LumberJocks.com.

Yep, that happens if you aren’t signed in. When I login with my iPhone, I have to remember to re-login with my iPad upon next usage…and vice versa.

Glad you figured that out!

If you are using Google chrome then just get the ad blocker plus app. It also works on FB and youtube.

If you’re gonna use ad-blocking extensions, don’t forget that sites like LJ depend on ad revenue to keep the lights on, so while ad blocking stuff will keep these link ads from appearing, so do the rest of the unobtrusive ones. 0 ads = 0 revenue = 0 LJ’s. Just sayin…

Have your say...
