I'm wondering if anyone else ran into this yet.

So far it happened once yesterday, and now again about 15 minutes ago.

I scroll down to the reply box to make a comment, and there is an ad "In The Reply Box".

Hmmm, now what?  I try putting my cursor there & clicking---It won't allow that.

OOOOO----Kay----How 'bout clicking "Clear", under the Reply Box???

Hey that works--The ad went away, but is replaced by another ad.

Click Clear again ---New ad----Again---New ad.

The thing is really good at this too, because as fast as I can click "Clear" another ad jumps in the box!

Now What????

I try refreshing the page---------Bingo--I get an empty Reply Box, and I got to make my comment---And this one too.

So if anyone else gets this problem, just refresh the page & it will go away------So Far.

Thanks,

Bear

I just replied to a post, but didn't see any pop ups or ads.  Some folks just have all the luck.

I have had problems with the reply box, but nothing like that..so far.  In fact today I even got a cursor in the reply box which is not always the case.

Cache was just cleared.

I'll post if it happens again.

This one is an iMac27, with Safari.

In case anyone wants to know---This happened to me twice today.

One of the times was actually when I clicked "quote" at the bottom of someone's post, so I could reply to them.

LOL---An add was in the reply box, instead of their gray tinted comment.

Weird!

I think it's just that the guys who put their ads on sites are better sneaks than the programmers who try to control them.

Pretty much like the guys who plant viruses seem to be better at what they do than the guys who make virus scans & blockers.
