I just got a pop up ad for gamebookers or something. Is this indeed from this site or getting hijacked?

I turned off my pop-up blocker, and I don't get it. I don't see the site as being hijacked. Maybe your system?

I didn't get the pop up exactly, just the warning from Opera, then surprised tried to see what it is.

I finished both anti virus and ad aware scan before this so..
I don't know. Perhaps just the one in a billion event. :lol:

Because that can produce a popup block here on the WSGF aswell.

Yup, I've tested WSGF just now in Firefox - even tried disabling AdBlock etc - and nothing. Then tried it in IE - same thing. No popup.

It looks like it was a one off thing, don't know why or how, but anyway, game on! :)
