Re: Paid for Premium and still seeing ads

Just checked in with our tech team, they started looking at it this morning but said it would take some time to deal with.

Re: Paid for Premium and still seeing ads

you shouldn't have to run an ad blocker if you pay for "no ad" premium membership.
I won't get cable because I feel it in a ripoff paying for cable and still get the commercials rather than getting Free "antenna TV" with the commercials. Commercials is how "Free" tv is paid for.

Re: Paid for Premium and still seeing ads

I don't run an ad blocker either and I am not seeing these ads. Maybe my Opera browser has them built in, I don't know. Ad blockers or not, I guess these spammers find a way in somehow. Like LTG above said, they are working on it.

BTW, have you guys affected by this cleared your cache history to try and clear this? Never know, that may do it.

Re: Paid for Premium and still seeing ads

I run Chrome, and have Ad blocking configured. But, these are not pop-up Ads. These are Ads inserted by source of the page and delivered as a part of the content. I don't know of any Ad Blocking agent that would sort this kind of rogue advertising out of a content stream from the source. I believe Vertical Scope has a problem on their systems, and will have to resolve it there. FWIW, it is still happening this morning. While the majority of the ads delivered to my screen are for Mazda, this morning there was another one on the same screen. I appreciate that they are "looking at it" for only three days. Be nice to get an update.

Re: Paid for Premium and still seeing ads

I am using chrome, not paying for premium. I have never seen anything like that. Just the pop ups.

Re: Paid for Premium and still seeing ads

Any update on the status of the fix?

It is annoying to see the ads after paying to have them gone.

Re: Paid for Premium and still seeing ads

No update from the techs yet, unfortunately, they are still looking into it.

Sorry!

Re: Paid for Premium and still seeing ads

Agreed, any update, including "no progress" is better than no update at all. A very good lesson for tech support/customer support to learn. Thanks LT, appreciate the pass-thru

Re: Paid for Premium and still seeing ads

I get the feeling this is a low priority fix to whomever is in charge of fixing things.

For the record, the issue persists and is getting worse.

Can someone post an authoritative update.

Re: Paid for Premium and still seeing ads

I replied earlier that I am not seeing these ads using chrome. Apparently I lied. If I go searching through the forum index, and open a thread, they are there. If that makes any sense.

Re: Paid for Premium and still seeing ads

Another week down and still no update.

Is it safe to assume that no one is doing ANYthing and really don't care if the problem is solved or not?

Re: Paid for Premium and still seeing ads

Haven't heard anything. I do see this type of ad in the threads now and then, not often. It may be something we have to get used to, I don't know.
I researched the screen name of one of these posters, it belongs to a large marketing company from Japan. One wonders why a big successful company like this would have to resort to this type of advertising?
