    I just got it for the first time. Call it 1:15 PM EST.

    Don't know if this matters, but Chrome was restarted last night with TCF thread in one tab. And this was my first time doing anything on the forums since the restart. (I hit the "New Posts" tab.)

    FYI for everyone -- we've added some filters with our ad providers that weren't previously available (or that were not enabled for some reason) to help prevent "sensitive" ads from appearing. That should help or eliminate the problems with the banner ads also mentioned in this thread, and may be connected to the popup.

    If anyone sees the popup from here on out, please let me know via PM with the details of your browser/system.

    @Waynomo - not sure if the state of the browser had anything to do with it; e.g., maybe it had an old cached page. I'm still not 100% certain of the origin of the popup though, so hard to say. Information from anyone who sees it, if it shows up again, will be helpful in sniffing it out.

    If I ever see the pop-up again I'll try to view source on it.
