I would ignore it as nothing has been posted by Jeff. I feel certain he would have made an announcement that this was happening.

My thought would be to contact Jeff or the powers that be to see if this is real.
Until I 'knew' from Jeff..........I would treat it like spam and delete.

With 887 posts, I don't think you qualify as a visitor.

I recently downloaded a program called mapscout--it came equipped with adware-malware that does what you describe. In researching how to get rid of it, it says you can uninstall the program, but the ads will remain. Must be really new, that was the only info I got, so far.

IT IS A PIA!!!!!!
