Okay, so here's the situation.
I have been getting pop-ups in this forum lately, and, in my history, when I got pop-ups, that really meant viruses.
So, to be very cautious, I will be leaving. I'm sorry it has to be like this.
Bye, everyone, you have been very awesome in my stay here. Thank you all. Bye.
Sorry to hear that.
It's not something that can be truly avoided these days. Ads containing browser script exploits may appear on any site, since they are distributed by the same giants like double click, google adds, etc.
Usually rouge ads are caught early on by the ad distributors and are removed. If you see suspicious ads pop up you can simply terminate the browser forcibly, as a last resort.
The best thing to do is maintain basic system security and staying up to date. You can take further control of the matter by using a more secure browser. Try looking into NoScript for FireFox.
Sadly to say, these digital crimes won't be going away at anytime.

Kind of retarded reason to leave to be honest.
I don't get popups and I highly doubt the forums is the cause.
There are by default 0 popups on the site, actually. If there are, they should be removed within a day or 2, by the ad provider, like Spyder said. (Even though I've yet to experience them.) If you're experiencing popups, something probably has invaded your computer and is causing it.
But there's no helping it, it's your choice. Thanks for having been an active member.
Thats a real letdown , I havent been getting any pop ups though
My age exceeds your IQ...significantly
The short time I've been here, I have never had one pop up. I'm not sure why you are, maybe check your security?
But if your planning on still leaving, goodbye.
I did get a weird pop-up yesterday. I didn't take a screenshot, nor do I remember the name of the website. Everything seems to be fine today, though. Maybe it was already taken down.
I never recieved a single pop up. Just do a spyware check up or some crap like that and it'll be A-Okay!
So far no pop up for me, either. Anyway it can't be helped if you decide to leave. Good bye Wings
