Rogue ADs

OK, I know I am taking a break but I checked my blog today to make sure everything was posted correctly and what did I find???? You got it, I have been hijacked by Entrecard!! Oh yes my friends there were ads waiting to be approved or denied, neither of which I had done and they WERE RUNNING ON MY WIDGET!! Yup, you heard right! So I denied all of them and they are still running on my hijacked widget! We are slowly losing advertising control of our own sites! I am starting to get angry so I am going back to play with the kids but will be checking back to see that the ads are gone! You might want to check your sites as well!

I noticed this too! I'm thinking of dumping entrecard - except that i've found some great blogs that I love and the dropping helps me remember to visit! I might just have to bookmark all of them.

Yeah I cancel all the paid ads on mine, but I will watch to see if they go on anyway.

Noticed you havent dropped much lately, you gonna drop out?

Thanks for the thoughts and prayers this week. I dont want to lose a great bloggin buddy like you either.

Love and Prayers,

Tim

Jo, the same thing happened to my site. According to the FAQ in 'Advert Setting,' the paid ads will automatically be approved to run after 24 hours if we did not reject or approve them manually. 24 hours? On several occasions, I found the paid ads automatically running within 24 hours in the queue. This means that there is a serious bug in their system. How did I know? I have been checking my dashboard regularly meaning everyday, except the time I was sleeping.

However, the paid ad got through anyway, EC violated their own set of rules which they put down in black and white.
