What is with these giant popups?
That kind of intrusive advertising causes me to not want to read anything more from a site that deploys these.
Can you send us that screenshot to team(at)hubpages(dot)com so we can investigate?
I have never gotten a pop up on Hubpages. I hope it never happens, websites go downhill fast with them. Maybe you need to run a computer scan?
No, it's not an infection.
Other people have reported these (I noticed that after posting this) and HP staff seems to be aware of them as they request details and screen shots.
I suspect it is YieldBuild (HP uses them for ad serving). YieldBuild has an option to display these obnoxious things. I expect that HP has that option shut off but that YB sometimes screws up and displays them anyway.
I agree. Sometimes you cannot remove the ad in question, preventing access to the material under the ad. I was on the Disney site and an ad for a vehicle was over the material, and I could not make it go away. I left the site and won't be back (it was Disney's official site - I can't figure out why they needed advertising for revenue on that page, anyway)!
Hubpages tries to monitor the adverts that are displayed. From what I've seen they remove any adverts that scroll across the page, do annoying things etc. If you are able to contact them with the site name advertised and as much information as possible, they'll remove it.

When it was first introduced I was annoyed by it but made an effort to tweak my hubs to get them out of Idle status. Now, a whole load have got zzs against them again and many of them are hubs that at one point were very successful and even now still have scores above 70 or higher.One of the hubs...

HubPages is a Ning site? Look at the bottom right in the footer...It looks like someone deleted some of the code that hid the fact that this has been a Ning site all along.I thought HubPages was its own platform, built from the bottom up by its creators, not running someone else's...
