What's up with the pop up ads here at ehMac? When hovering over them, they expand and try to take over. This place use to be nice and free from all that stuff.

Use Adblock and similar browser extensions. Fixes all that junk. Also, that some times also occurs if your Mac has malware/adware installed.

Make sure you did not disable your adblocker, say when visiting Forbes. Logging in still seems to keep the ads at bay even without an adblocker.

That said for the 95% of users who do not log-in to visit, ehMac has become almost unusable without the aid of an adblocker. I rediscover that every time I accidentally use Camino.

I have been using Ghostery for years and never see ads :-)

Thanks for that. Got AdBlock up and running.
