Default Unanswered: Not child friendly Pop-ups

Last night and first thing this morning my pop-up blocker (thankfully) blocked pop-ups to adult websites. It tells me at the bottom of my screen the name/ webaddress of the site. I just thought I should let someone know, but was unsure who.

This happened to me, too! I couldn't believe it... and my pop-up didn't block it. Thankfully, I noticed the name in the address bar & closed it off before anything was seen - my kid are nearby!

I don't have a pop up blocker so it took me to those sites...

I think the Admins are working on fixing that

Smile Re: Not child friendly Pop-ups

My pop-up blocker blocks them, and to be safe I think the non-webbie related ads need to go.

I had a pop-up page to come up on my screen the other evening while I was in the forums! It was not something I would want a child to see,it was an adult site! It came out of no where because I hadn't clicked on anything!

Thankfully we have a great pop up blocker.... I've also blocked the ads because they were constantly reloading and basically making my internet useless whenever I was on this site..

Default Re: Not child friendly Pop-ups

I am a mom to 3 little kids and I have a pop-up blocker, so I did not see any of those things. But, I am very concerend to hear about this. I don't know much about computer systems, but does WI have any control over this to prevent it? Or those people send those nasty pop-ups randomly?
