Author Posts November 7, 2011 at 3:31 pm #746040 abbyqsMember Hi there, I know WordPress put ads on our blog once in a while, however the new ads look like a virus/spam issue and not the regular ads we are used to seeing. The one I am seeing now looks like spam, please see below. http://iu.qs.com/2011/11/07/2012-employer-survey-sign-up-facility/ can someone please let us know what’s going on? I.e did wordpress put this on our blog or has their server been hacked? please can you let us know asap because if it is spam we don’t want our readers to click on it. thanks, abby Blog url: http://qsiu.wordpress.com/ November 8, 2011 at 12:42 pm #746248 kardotimMember Sorry for the inconvenience.
