Thanks for posting, our server shouldn't be serving pop up ads on the site. I have forwarded it to our ad server to get it removed.

Got another, much more annoying one

ETA: this one shows up when you mouseover the Ashley furniture banner ad

Here we go again. Mouse over on the ACE ad sets it off.

I forwarded the British Airways ad on to a coworker who deals with the advertising issues, I'll follow up with him and see if the ad host has responded.

I just had the British Airways ad pop up again. I can't find anyway to close it without closing out the whole tab.

I'm sure you are working hard on it. Just wanted to pass this recent sighting on.

Thanks!

I just got it too... only way I could get rid of it was to close out of dz.com and then come back.

I just got the pop-up too, it is annoying and we are working at getting rid of it. In fact we already reached out to the ad hosts on Wednesday, but we haven't heard back from them, we'll be getting in touch with them again immediately in order to effectively remove this annoying ad.

I just got the BA ad too. There wasn't even a X to kill it with. In fact, after the video ended it wouldn't go away, no obvious way to kill it. I ended up closing the browser (Chrome) and starting again.

Yeah, it's an awful ad campaign. I'm not sure how it found itself onto any ad hosts. The easiest way to get rid of it, is to refresh the page.

As mentioned, we're working at getting it removed ASAP. Waiting to hear back from the ad host still.
