    Default Ad blocker is off but forum thinks it's on

    I have my ad blocker disabled on Crownhill's site, and I am seeing ads, but every time I open a thread in the forum I get the pop-up: "Attention. This valuable resource relies on the very small amount of revenue...........".
    Is this just happening to me or is everyone seeing it?

    I'm not seeing the same issue. Ad blocker off and no warnings.

    Thanks, Tim- I did a little more digging. This seems to happen on Opera (my preferred browser) and Chrome, but not on Firefox or IE. Strange. I'm running Windows 8.1.

    Seems that a reboot fixed the problem. I should have tried that before posting. Sorry for the false alarm.

    You got this message because the adblocker is off. It is Lester complaining that you are depriving him of the money he needs to run the site.

    I'm not complaining :-)
    If users block the source of revenue that is helping to subsidise this resource, be it on their heads.
