same thing here.  happens sometimes, not others.  i end up going to beemaster.com and entering the forums from there.

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

i have done that, but it still happens.  not often, but annoying when it does.

in this case, i don't think it's a computer cleaning thing.  it's not really a pop up either.  it's a re-direction.  i think it's just a glitch in the web ring program.

I am running Mozilla.  I wonder if that has something to do with it since I am not seeing it pop up.   I had it one time months ago (about when Beemaster got his new computer) and that was it.

I'm running Mozilla, and the durn things just keep reappearing. Over & Over & Over

Seems to happen most when I'm scrolling down.
The only way to stop them is to close the window.
In the past week has happened 4-5 times.
I'd like to tell them were they can put their "Web Bee Ring"

I run firefox and have never had this happen.Did you go under the tools menu at the top of the browser,select options then check the block popups box?
 I also run adbloc plus,but not sure if it is still a free program for download.

Started happening to me now too.
I used to also be able to access the forum from my smart phone but now says my IP has been put on a blocked list.

I kept getting it last night, so just quit trying to get on to Beemaster. Today I had no problem. Same thing a few days ago. It's not a pop-up, it's a redirection.

It could be a virus on my computer but seems more likely that it's coming from the forum.

Sometimes I can't even open the forum--it flashes on the forum then redirects immediately. The speed of the redirect might be a clue as to whether this is on my computer or the forum. But if it's a virus on my computer, then it seems like a virus that was designed just for Beemaster as this doesn't happen on any other site.

when it has happened to me, i go to beemaster.com and enter the forum from there.  that seems to do the trick.  has not happened for a few days, but it's pretty aggravating when it does.

ran ccleaner, spybot, and virus program and found nothing on my computer other than the usual crap.

I don't know why this is happening, and can't reproduce it.  I have made some adjustments today to see if it helps.  Please let me know if you still get it.

Robo;

I tried to use the forum this evening [ Tue. 11-9 about 5:45 Central ] silly thing kept coming on about 6 or 7 times !

I gave the address of the darn thing a couple of posts back.

I click the back arrow, forum comes on for a second, and then it pops right back again.
After about 6-7 times I gave up, turned off modem, about 6:25 turned on modem and here I am, so far about 6:34 and has not happened yet.

Thanks
Bee-Bop

Just noticed at the bottom of this page, is a { add ? } for the silly
???? BeeMasters International Beekeeping WebRing ????? that keeps appearing,how are they connected ?

I have that ad, too.

"Beemaster's International Beekeeping WebRing" in a box (with Beemaster logo) at the bottom left. Do you have that Robo?

Yes the link (box at the bottom)  has always been there.   Some seem to be seeing a pop-up/redirect that is not something we have done.

Please keep me informed if you keep getting the pop-up, while I try to isolate the issue.
