We interrupt this program to ask: Do you see popup ads when you view this blog?

THIS IS AN ALERT

A reader wrote to tell me that when she accesses my blog, she is confronted with popup ads or redirected to undesirable sites (not consistently the same site, so there’s no point in being specific).

If you have seen this problem yourself, please tell me about it. In particular, I’m interested in whether you are going directly to the blog page (http://ampersandvirgule.blogspot.com) or accessing it through a feed reader. In the latter case, it would be helpful to know what feed reader you are using and what the feed URL is that you are using. Also, please tell me if this problem occurs when you first come to the blog or when you click a link on the blog.

You can reach me either by emailing me directly or, if you prefer to remain anonymous, submitting a comment. I will not be approving comments to be posted on the blog, so your report will remain confidential.

If you are not having any problems with the blog, feel free to tell me that, too. However, this is not a poll. One problem is too many; it makes no difference if everyone else is getting through normally.

WE NOW RETURN YOU TO YOUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED PROGRAM

A few people have written to tell me that, yes indeedy, they are seeing popups under some circumstances. As a test, I have eliminated the Google ads at the top of the sidebar. Please let me know if you are still seeing popups.

Thanks,

Dick

Well, getting rid of Google ads didn't do it. I've just removed another script from the page (still in random testing mode). Let me know if the popup ads are still there.
