Blog Hacked With Video Ads

    Readers have been telling me there is a video ad on the bottom of my posts. I can't see it when I check the URL or try to edit the post, but others can (they've sent screencaps). I did NOT put this video on my site and want it taken down! It keeps happening. What can I do?

  2. That's not a hack.

    To support the service (and keep free features free), we sometimes run advertisements, and the agreement for this has been in our terms of service since 2006.

    We try hard to only run them in limited places. If you would like to completely eliminate ads from appearing on your blog, we offer the No-Ads Upgrade: http://en.support.wordpress.com/no-ads/

    Thank you for answering. I wouldn't mind ads (totally understandable), except this one is a large video (larger than the images posted) that masks itself as a feature in the actual post. That format feels very invasive. I'm not opposed to ads but they should be differentiated from the post/article content in some way!
