I need to know what ad network is serving that ad... you can usually tell by rolling your mouse over it, and seeing what the target URL is.

every one that I've seen is a flash ad. i.e. no rollover link or readable URL.

If you experience this type of popup, feel that you can recreate them, run windows or linux, and would like to help SO discover the origin, perhaps you could run the netstat command while the page is loading.

This command will show all network connections, so be sure that you have no other web pages or outside connections going when you run it to help avoid confusion. U2U the results to him if he approves this technique?

Or, if you have access to your firewall logs, perhaps you could send SO those to help identify the culprit.

I just got the smileys one pop-up again, after I clicked on a link to a thread at the bottom of the main BTS page (to be even more precise - when I loaded the page it automaticly took me down to the bottom of the page),


these two urls come up for the advert -


Long URL for smileycentral.com


cdn5.tribalfusion.com...


(Mod edit: Shortened link. --Majic)

I use Firefox and still get them. Both with the current release and current Beta.

The one minutes ago, going from the Photo thread to MyATS was for Classmates.com, served by Tribalfusion.

I have a scr shot and addy if ya want it.

ATS was the only browser of anykind open
I run full security (including no-allow ActiveX/Java)
FF popup blocker enabled.
Very clean system.

I honestly don't see any problem with one pop-up, especially if it means ATS's funds being increased. It's only ONE window.

No problem for me, even if there is a pop-up.

The problem is that ATS owners don't want them to happen, but they are.

If ATS has taken the code out of the site for popups, yet they are still happening, then something is afoul towards ATS from the popup vendors.

If it was your site, and popups were happening even tho you did not want them, you'de have a problem with it.

I've had these running Firefox on my Windows box. The popup blocker seems to catch one (you get the little info bar) then as soon as you click a URL to open a thread it pops up. The one I get every time seems to be the smileys one (I think that was tribalfusion). Haven't had one on Linux yet.

Yes, every first visit. Usually it's a big 3D smiley advert. And I have a pop-up blocker cause it's built into Netscape 7.1.

Happens at some other sites too - Google Toolbar couldn't block it either. They also leave cookies on your computer - and I have my cookie settings on custom so that shouldn't be able to happen. The evil has obviously by now found out what the various blocks and settings use in their code and has changed their advert-coding so as to bypass what is there to keep them out.


Well, maybe it has worked. I have bought Norton and Spyware so they got me for about $60. But I still get 20-30 per hour on ATS. Not so many elsewhere.

I am going to kill the talking smilies over and over again.

(to be even more precise - when I loaded the page it automaticly took me down to the bottom of the page)

noticed that as well. Thought it was just me.

I have unsuccessfully been trying to duplicate the popup. Been a background window for me in firefox/linux.

So, I've closed Google and the popups have declined from 2 every minute to about 1 every 2 minutes.

Tribalfusion is one of the worst culprits here, imo.

Fastclick is another.

Don't have any full urls at the moment, but will try to get something, and post it here.

This is what you get when you let 3rd parties execute code on your site... this is what I am guessing anyway, I am guessing you are hosting someones (ad company) JS here and they are being tricky pricks. Remember that JS can be used to directly manipulate the DOM, ie edit the page from the user's browser after the page has loaded.

Find em' and sue em

Not clever enough to get away with it for long.

They should've known better then to try to pull one over on a conspiracy site
