MLB Trade Rumors uses a handful of different ad networks to supply the ads you see on the site. Within each network, I’ve always kept pop-ups and other instrusive ads blocked. You should never see anything like that here – it’s just annoying.
However, it has been happening to some readers in the past few weeks. I’ve done everything I can in an attempt to figure out which network is sneaking in these pop-ups and full-page ads without my permission. So far, I’ve had no success.
That’s where you come in. I would be extremely grateful if readers can help me eliminate these annoying ads. They don’t occur very often; I haven’t been able to get them on my own computer. I believe they occur when you click Comments to read a post’s comments. If you see one, please take a screenshot and email it to me. Better yet, you could even right-click and send me the source code of the popup. Based on reader emails, I’ve learned that some of the malicious advertisers are called QuestionMarket.com and FreeWebScanner.com. But, that is not enough for me to identify the offending ad network. I am at my wit’s end so any help would be much appreciated.
