I have had them start popping up too. I have an ad blocker that has worked well until now. I may try this new one. Thanks!

I've noticed the bottom overlay banner has stopped appearing. Thanks, whomever the helpful admin was.

I use adBlocker and no adds of any kind on the site. I also have Pop Up Blocker activated to stop the pop ups . You have to be proactive to keep ahead in the game I guess.

those ads typically pop up if you're not logged in.

Logging in does not matter. I am logged in and counted seven ads just before writing this post. Now there are eight as I type this. Not only that, they ALL go away and reload with EVERY mouse click.

That was the case right up to about 1-Jan-2017, that is when I started noticing all the ads, before that, just the banner ad at the top under the welcome banner.
Adblocker plus took care them, no more ads.

I may consider an ad blocker myself.
I use adblockplus myself and you just hit it on the head - i don't advertise on any electronic sites due to the fact all the ads are blocked and as a vendor you are not allowed to advertise in the blog areas.

I suspect a lot of folks could cure these sort of problems by simply setting their browser to not allow pop-ups.

In Chrome its under Settings-> Show Advanced Settings -> Privacy Content Settings -> Popups : Do not allow any site to show popups (recommended)

I do not run any add-on add blocker and never have any issue with pop up ads.

Of course, YMMV. Good Luck.
