Red face I just saw an innapprorpriate add...

I was looking around WI.. and I saw an add at the top of the page that had a VERY frightening picture flashing very quickly, and next to it said 'Click here to see the most scariest thing in the world!' Then under it said 'Do not click if you are under 18!' - the picture was very discturbing and would definently scare youner children on here. It will probably give ME nightmares!

Is there anything Justin or Wendy can do to stop these adds??

Try PMing a mod or admin. They should know.

I had very gross adds like that when I had a virus on my computer. I don't know if you have any virus protector like AVG, but it might not even be a virus. PM an admin or mod. We clicked something like that once and the scary thing was "Win a free shopping spree from shopping.com!" It was just some website called shopping.com or something.

That's weird.... actually... I think there is something wrong with my computer because about a week ago it blacked out then said 'A problem has been dectected on your computer and is being shut down to protect against damage' then is shut down like a half a second.
My parents said they were going to check it out but they haven't yet... so that's probably why.

PM any mod who is online, and give them the link to the ad (if you still have it.) They make sure it gets blocked immediately.

Yeah, PM a mod and tell them and describe it and everything. I'm pretty sure they do not control the Ad's though--Its what keeps the site up and running.But still--Contact a moderator, They should be able to help

Ever since I got those adds I downloaded a free virus protector called AVG. http://www.avg.com/ We haven't had any problems since.

Yes you should definitley tell a moderator or an administrator. They will work to block it and hopefully soon!

Ya I have a virus protector too but you have to pay for it. It's called CA Security System and we've never had any problems at all. It also tells you when something is blocked so you know it's working!

Same with mine. If a virus is on the computer it detects it and deletes it into the Virus Vault.
