    I’m still not seeing it at laavventura.wordpress.com, but don’t worry I’ll look for your email instead.

    That’s weird. I found it very easily just through the details on this thread:

    Sadly I don’t think the ad in question is anything out of the ordinary for wordpress.com nowadays. It’s always worth reporting them just so they’re aware that not everyone is OK with them, and to try and put them off showing even more, but these kind of ads have been appearing for months now with no real sign of their incidence decreasing.

    When I run into one of those “you win click here” pieces of crap I never go back to that web site – so James – your new ad system is going to depress visitors to sites on WordPress.COM

    @ auxclass, it would not put me off going to the site its not there fault, its just that someone might click it and wonder whats wrong with their pc.

    @ wank, where did you find the link ?

    auxclass, we don’t plan to run ads like that, and we appreciate reports if they ever sneak through.

    wank, I was looking at the reported blog, didn’t check the OP’s blog.

    This has helped answer a question I put up before checking forums – thanks!

    @dribblingpensioner – does not matter how an ad got on a site – there are certain types of behavior that I just will not tolerate

    @ auxclass, could you please tell me what you mean because i’m completely baffled.

    I believe what auxclass means is what he said above here > “When I run into one of those “you win click here” pieces of crap I never go back to that web site … ” https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/spam-advert-in-blog?replies=29#post-756236

    This has been a learning experience for me.

    @dribblingpensioner – thank you for reporting it to the support team on WordPress.

    I don’t like that ad either, and too be honest with you all, I had no idea that was spam until I read it here. I wouldn’t know what spam looked like, unless it was sitting in a can in front of me. So, I appreciate your efforts in reporting this.

    Maybe it’s time to upgrade to a no ad blog.

    ok, laavventura, i would not worry about up grading because you never really see many adds.
