When I try to enter my dashboard, there is this rather large advertisement at the very top that says, “Click here to earn donations at [merchant-name] for [charity-name]1.0% donation on qualified purchases”
There is a large red x at the right, but when I click it to close this ad, nothing happens and it prevents me from accessing the admin bar at the top.
Is this from you guys or something else with my firefox browser? It is becoming rather annoying and I haven’t clicked the link for fear of some virus.
Just to clarify WordPress.com does not implement any advertising that results in text underscoring or colorization, text link ads or pop-up ads or links in comments. Know also that to date every blogger who has reported this on the support forums has had a browser-add-on or browser extension, game, toolbar or shopping app that was the cause of the unwanted adware. http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/09/14/bloggers-beware-of-adware/
