Maleware ad on front page

Just saw that there's a maleware linked ad on the front page.  Was claiming that i need a java update to view the content, gave a install button.  Hyper link was to some strange website, wasn't about to click.  Just warning you guys.

    I'm seeing the same thing. I think it has to do with Chrome blocking Flash since a couple of days now. Although I've seen the same thing demanding I install some Java player.

    I just saw the same thing - I didn't click any links though.

    @Meddle removed this offending code, but it was tied to AdBlocker use. As always, we'd appreciate if you whitelisted us! Helps us keeps the lights on. :)

    Try to be excellent to everyone you meet. You never know what someone else has seen or endured.

    So the offending code was intentionally trying to send malware to people who are using Adblocker?

    I won't say how that looks...

    And for all the Scarlet Blade ads (and worse) this site has had, I wouldn't think poorly of anyone using AdBlocker. There is still plenty of (questionable) advertising that slips through the cracks.

    I really wish you guys would give those of us who wish to support your website, without whitelisting your advertisements, an alternative.

    Don't play anything R2. You been warned.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    AdBlocker is for my protection.

    While I don't use adblocker, I do use eset and malwarebytes which have blocked various attacks originating from mmorpg.com ads over the years.

    I'll whitelist the site when you get rid of the tasteless, trashy ads which make this site look like it peddles anime porn. I will also repeat the desire to have an option to support this site without having to look at that crap.

    actually , hopefully you know this as well, ad CDNs can actually get verified to have adds shown through any and all ad blockers. adblocker plus and ad blocker on IE and edge allow non intrusive verified ads from google and MS and yahoo to show up still. so my advice to you is to find better ad delivery services.

    so please do not ask us to remove ad blockers.. i as a member of the community ask you to get better ad delivery services that give non intrusive ads.
