Now this intrusive advertising (turns out to be malware)

They push it too far, now a new advertising that will make me regret to become a paying member:

Ghostery is not able to get rid of this. We can close it, bue it re-appear with each time a new page is loaded.

Is it just me?

Adblock plus is keeping me from seeing it.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

+1 on Adblock. Great product!

1983 Nighthawk 550
1990's Vulcan 750
1983 GS450L
2004 DL650

There are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity... Most of them ride V-Stroms.

There are lots of adblock products. They keep me sane. If the internet becomes like TV, I'm gone. I gave up TV in 1990.

We don't host those kinds of ads, is it possible you have been infected with some adware?
I'm sorry for the inconvenience

I should have suspected a problem if Ghostery didn't stop it.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Good to know, I would have been nun to please if the ad team just stuck up a new ad placement without asking for approval.
