Why the pop ups on this site?

Suddenly, this site seems to be the pop up centre of the universe. Everytime I click on a forum link I get a pop up.

I understand that this site is not really "free", but I've had 20 pop ups since I logged in this morning. Far far far too many.

Sounds like something else is at work on your computer.

There are no pop up ads on ehMac. The only sort of pop-up relating to the site is if someone sends you a PM and you have a pop-up notification about the PM. I believe that is a setting that can be turned of as well in your user cp.

Funny, it happened only the one day, and only on this site. I'm confident that it was site related as all the pop ups had to do with macword.

No pop ups today.
