"But it will only appear one time, I promise"

Sun Sep 29, 2013 8:35 pm

I've seen the popup for the contest at least 3x now in the last 2 days, including twice today. IE11 + Win8.1.

Anyone else seeing this?

I've gotten that multiple times as well. If they aren't honest in their first few statements, why would anyone trust them? Makes me wonder what malware they put on my pc when I clicked to see what they were offering. So far my security software hasn't raised any alarms.

At least a dozen times I've seen that #@!% thing. Next will be the Chinese spammers, mark my words. They get paid to actually sign up for sites like this, and then post ads for unrelated merchandise for sale.

Are you accessing it on different machines? The site uses a cookie to store that you've viewed the contest reminder, so if you are then accessing the site on your phone, you'll see it there once as well.

The same thing will also apply if you use a different browser, you'll see it once for each browser since IE/Firefox/Chrome don't share their cookies.

I saw the popup in the same machine more than once. Is it tied to the session, perhaps ? When the session expires, the pop up comes back ?

Every time I visit from home I get the message. Never a message at work.

I delete cookies after sessions. The message should read "share your browsing habits and history with this site, and maybe you'll only see this once."

It seems to pop up every time I visit. And it is much more annoying than a normal ad since it will not let me interact with the site until I find and click on the correct spot in their ad.

This definitely is not appropriate and should not be allowed.

Admin, please cancel this ad. Why would we support an entity that isn't honest in their opening statements? If there is a technical problem, then I suggest removing the ad until the glitch is resolved.

Same machine, same browser. Haven't cleared cookies & I never have to retype my username/password. Not using InPrivate browsing.

Since the contest was supposed to end today, I assume this ad will be gone too. Not sure how we can troubleshoot this further now. Please let me know if you have suggestions.
