That's actually very common, and nothing to be concerned about. Practically all ads use JavaScript to track clicks.

I got this as a pop up ad (and am getting it repeatedly). Specifically I'm getting it on the deck page for cards of my nation UnicornSanity.

Saw another ad for “Spicy Lingerie” ... um=display

EDIT: these ads are taking over the site. They make up half the ads I see.

In the liberal justice system, raiding-based offenses are considered especially heinous. In The South Pacific, the dedicated defenders who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Council on Regional Security. These are their proscriptions. DUN DUN.

I saw an ad earlier that was a bit inappropriate for NS. It said “The most gorgeous redheads in Hollywood” and a nude woman was shown. I unfortunately forgot to copy the link, but if I see it again I’ll add the link. But just thought I’d give a heads up to the admins.

I just saw some questionable ads for and with what looks like a cropped image of a naked woman. Same image appeared with both URLs.

Didn't click it because I was mostly focused on the RP I was typing, but it looked a little sketchy, so I figured I'd mention it.

Hi, I've been getting this ad now and then during card farming. It's random across all of my puppet accounts, and only shows up on the issues page:

It could be worse, but it's pretty not great.
