An ad just blocked me from Sailnet unless I gave my personal info.
I understand the site has to make money to stay open, but I think you're making some questionable choices if you're running this kind of advertising.
The "You're a winner" ads referenced on another thread in this forum have been around forever and have a reputation for downloading adware if you click on them. Not to mention that they're annoying as hell visually.
Now today I try and visit sailnet and the following full page ad appears
When I try and navigate away from the page I get
I try to refresh the page and it won't let me into Sailnet unless I choose a game and complete a survey. So I block the site in the Explorer security window, close the browser and try again. This time I get Sailnet.
A Google on cpalead.com turns up several sites like this one that warn that clicking on a cpalead survey collects personal information and loads adware onto your computer.
I really enjoy Sailnet, but I've already stopped accessing Sailnet from work (I used to read during lunch). The last thing I need to explain is an infected computer at a client. Now I'm wondering if I should give up on Sailnet completely.
I'm CC'ing the Administrator and the Mods on this.
