    When logging into the forums I got a pop-up ad for a survey, is this something the site is putting on or is it just an intrusive ad? I took some screen caps and the site it is associated with is: http://opinionmart.com/.

    I'll post the screen caps if you guys need to investigate further.

    Yeah, they usually need a screen shot in addition to the URL.

    I thought you guys would be aware of whether or not you were outsourcing for a survey so I wouldn't have to go through the trouble of uploading the photos, regardless - I'll post them momentarily.

    Thanks for the screen shots. I'm not involved in investigating this sort of thing, but I'm assuming that the FAQ bit about ads applies here, and that the pics are useful for those who deal with it.

    Yah, and I usually supply them - but it was more of a general question as to whether or not this was something MR was actually outsourcing or if it was actually an intrusive ad. Sorry for coming off like a douche in the last post, that wasn't my intention.

    ^ You may be right, it may be a case of outsourcing - I just didn't know, so I figured it was safer with screenshots. :)

    I'll alert someone who knows about this kind of thing to this thread.

    Just heard back - it's being looked into. Thanks for the heads-up!

    If anyone gets this again.

    In Safari, can you open the Activity Window and take a screenshot of it and send it to me arn@normalkid.com

    thanks

    Got the ad about ten minutes. I took two screen shots and sent them your way.
