Are you signed in? Are you using an ad blocker?

It is not an advertisement. It is us inviting visitors to receive the newsletter. It is only seen by those visiting the site not logged in.

Yes. I’ve seen it but only when I’m not Logged in.

Pardon me for saying so but there are a few things you Don’t Do on your Computer.

I would never click on an ad that hasn’t identified who they are. That one doesn’t and it’s suppose to be an invitation from LumberJocks to receive the Newsletter? Why isn’t LumberJocks name on there? They also want your full name and e-mail address and send it to an anonymous site? Not Very Likely.

I have no idea who “Get Pro-Tips & News” is. Unless someone is assuming that because your on this site, that’s who it’s from. Numerous sites have ads like this and they have nothing to do with that particular site. Even as a Member I had no idea who it was.

It’s an invitation for a Virus, just like “Your (whatever) is out of date Click here to Update”

“Privacy Verified” I know what it’s suppose to mean but?.

Sorry if I seem to be overdoing it, but that’s the way I see it.

I am with Rick on this one. It kept popping up this weekend while on my wife’s phone and I pad. All I could think of was virus. If I was a new person it would have been my last visit to the site, good way to lose potential members.

It was annoying to the point that it wasn’t worth messing with and I moved on as I didn’t want to mess with figuring out my password and what email I had linked to get any reminders.

I have requested that it be removed while they redo it with our logo.

Thanks Cricket. That’ll help a bunch. I hadn’t let it get to a point of annoyance, but knowing what it is from will help.

It should be gone now. If it isn’t, it will be soon. Let me know if you see it again.

Still getting a “pop up” everytime someone mentions staining.
(Long winded Commercial for blotch control) Pretty annoying but you can bet on it every time…
j/k…about the pop up part…. not the annoying part!
