    Honestly I don’t think it has anything to do with BYC.... It used to happen to me (on any site that I went on). It finally went away though....

    I’ll tag @Nifty-Chicken anyway though (just in case).

    These are ads that are slipping through the filters of our advertising partners like Google AdSense, etc. You can read more here: PHISHING POP UP?

    Basically, it's like other forms of spam (in email, etc.) where we (the service providers) are constantly battling to keep the spam, etc. out while the spammers keep coming up with new ways to get around our filters. It's like a came of cat-mouse + whack-a-mole.

    Thanks for reporting when you see these!
