They seemed to have slowed down for me.

Hope I didn’t jinx it.

missconvy :  I second the ad blocker! Adblock app (free version).  Works like a charm.

SmilingMrsD :  I followed a fellow bee’s advice and downloaded the Norton AdBlocker app. It took maybe a day or so to kick in after turning it on in my Safari settings, but I haven’t gotten one of those terrible pop ups since 

 

*crosses fingers and toes that I didn’t just jinx myself*

SmilingMrsD :  i posted that last month about the same issue. Bees suggested Adblocker, so I downloaded the free version of Adblocker browser. Within a day, there were hundreds of ad/spams blocked. So far, 13k++ and counting. I only access WB using this browser. Hopefully the moderators would do something!

n00bee :  THANK YOU! I just downloaded this adblocking app. I had created a thread about it and then it had stopped for like a week, and came back in full force. Hoping it works because it is super annoying!
