there's a thread somewhere, S.O. has asked that if you are receiving spyware from the ads to let him know...

oh I guess that's what your doing with this post..

Can you be more specific. Our contract with them specifies that nothing other than a simple tracking cookie would be used.

How do I get rid of these pops? Delete my cookies?

I don't get those ads very often at all, I think my Norton firewall blocks them. I only see the sidebar on the right.
Perhaps cookie crusher or a similar service would help?

Spyware will pop-up on certain triggers. The highly political and news-rich content of ATS is notorious for triggering many pop-up spyware applications. (I have a test-bed PC at home with spyware installed on-purpose and have confirmed that for some reason, the makers of these programs have decided either the domain or content of ATS is a high-priority trigger... very odd) SpyWare is now considered among the most serious computer support problems. www.wired.com... so... just because you get spyware popups or alerts on ATS, is no indication they came from us... it means you already have this evil crap on your system. Rest assured, if the new ads are installing spyware, they will be immediately removed, and legal action considered.
