Default Dang - Gets me everytime

These ads that look like posts get me every time. The method is sheer genius. I'm sure it really gets the click count up for PFF. But I hate it as it is deceptive.

I hadn't seen those until the other day when I clicked on two in a row. It kind of pissed me off since it seemed deceptive, but now I know what to look for.

Use Chrome as your web browser and download Ad Block + and all that crap should disappear.

He's not talking about pop-up ads. He's talking about "threads" in some of the forums that when you click on them they take you to another website. All of the ones in the General Forum above the Sticky threads are the ones he's talking about.

When I installed Ad Block + on my Chrome Browser those click bait links no longer show up.
