Happened to me 2x today trying to write back to DCcT. May his friend Mark truly rest in peace and find his reward.

  1. If you use your browser to 'automatically log you in upon each visit', the setting will be lost.
  2. All the chocolate chip stuff in the kitchen will disappear

It started a couple of days ago, but it's getting ridiculous. Whenever I navigate to a new page on the site, I have to close out of a 3/4 to 7/8ths of the page ad. And the ad is still there after I close it, it's just smaller and I'm able to scroll down to the content. But initially EVERY time I load a page the monster sized ad prevents me from seeing content until I close the ad.

I'm sorry you are experiencing this. Sometimes bad ads do slip through and make their way to the providers. All I can suggest is clearing cookies and your cache, closing and re-opening the browser and see what happens. What about other browsers? Mobile vs. desktop?

Steve, you and your fellow mods/board operators have NOTHING to apologize for. This isn't a big deal.

I've only had this on Chrome, which is what I use for my laptop. I very rarely, if ever, use my phone to access the site. To small and I hate that little keyboard (says an old man!)

if it keeps up, let me know and I can try reaching out to the ad provider.
