    I’m getting a large pop-up ad for Amazon’s Prime Day sales when navigating to this forum. I’m signed in and I believe my level of membership is supposed to disable the ads. Thanks

    I've been getting suspicious Amazon Prime emails in the account associated with my login here at the same time as the pop up ads started on the site. Don't think it's a coincidence.

    Just one more reason to boycott Amazon. Try buying something and see how much spam you get.

    I didn't get the amazon popup this time, but I did get one to download a content blocker?? Is this legit?

    I highly doubt it. Don't install it.

    We messed up on our end it would seem guys. Those should have only been visible to guests and those not logged in, and then should have been only once. I'm learning new info about it as I go, but at least it should be gone now
