Oh yeh, I almost forgot. I had sound yesterday on the forums from a Target advertisement. Looked like a commercial with a lady speaking as if she was a news reporter. I took a screenshot crop (windows 7 cutting tool) while at work. Just thought I would mention it in case you are interested. Let me know if you want me to post the pic. -BMP

Nope. Haven't heard a single sound since that one time. My post was just an FYI.

We have turned on all filters to exclude any type of risque ads, but some slip through occasionally depending on the criteria. I haven't seen the ad so I can't identify where it came from unfortunately. A screenshot would help in the future, but I'll be on the lookout as well.

Is it possible that the ad you are seeing is from an underlined text? We don't have any ads that auto-play sound around the edges of the site. But I just saw an ad that plays sound when scrolling over.

I have had sound coming from the Obama and all sorts of Ad's all day today. And, I never once hovered over them. Usually, I click a link go to my Outlook while it is loading or aCad work. Then, about 30 seconds will go by before I all of a sudden hear sound. Happened about 6 or so times today. Just an FYI.

I use current Firefox and when I come to the site and start reading threads I get completely redirected to random sites saying

"Congratulations! You are the (local city I live in) daily winner!"

The only way to get away from the ad is to leave the site completely and come back. Which, I might add, only delays that ad from coming back.

My home and PC are very clean. Never any redirects until a week ago or so. Now both have a redirect one only one link of RealGM. It is only when I click on the link called "Forums." It goes to that daily winner thing.

But, I figured a way around that redirect. If I hover over Forums link and then go to the drop down to the Team or General Discussion link, I don't get the redirect. Evidently, some virus/trojan has either infected RealGM servers or this is a paid advertisement for them. I hope that helps.

Hey, there are new ads I am seeing that actually cover the typing space. It covers some of the options on the postreply so it makes inserting youtubes more difficult. There are ways to go around it, but it is really unappealing. Ads should not spill outside the top corner and the sides, and if they do, their should be a clear way to close them
There is no asterisk on ANY N.B.A. titles.

Numbers don't lie, people who use them do

Are these on the desktop version or on the app? A screenshot would be helpful because I haven't seen any instance where the ad is beyond its borders into the regular site. Thanks!
