Yeah it is but I feel like it's bigger than Southernwx. Thought I saw it on another message board I'm a part of. I'll let you know if that's the case.
Let me know. I was getting a very similar ad at weather.us for a while. I'm about to turn ads off all together to see what happens

I am using safari on an iPhone and I get a pop up ad at least once every time I go to use the site now … at first it was okay but now it’s like kind of a lot and this never used to happen until like 2 weeks ago maybe?

Well, I didn't this time when I came on here.

I had been getting at least one every time I come onto the site before ads were turned off.**

I use safari on my iPhone, and I’ve been seeing them at least once every time I came here for the last several days. But since you turned off all ads an hour or two ago, I haven’t seen them. I don’t mind an occasional ad, and the banner ads are fairly unobtrusive, I understand sites needing to be self supportive. But the constant pop ups were getting a bit annoying. Thanks for asking about it!

Appreciate you letting me know. I actually can't see the ads so I depend on everyone else to let me know when something annoying is happening

Yes takes up whole iPhone screen then I hit the wrong button and it takes me elsewhere etc. could be cool feature for guests only that don’t sign up.
