Hello all! We have been trying to get a hold of Peter and others in regards to the ads that mysteriously starting showing up on the blog. Is anybody else having this problem?
Thanks for any help you might be able to provide! We appreciate it!

I didn’t see anything on your blog and I have no problem at all.
Could you post a picture of it?

If you look towards the bottom of the page, there is an ad.
Sorry, not sure if I attached that pic right. If that doesn’t work, I can send you a pic thru email.
Thanks for your help!

It doesn’t look like the image worked on my end.
If you look towards the end of this post, there is an ad.
It appears after the reviewer’s bio.

I see no ads on the whole page.
This is strange.

Check that your browser doesn’t have adblock enabled; Chrome these days comes with it right out of the box, so you might not even realize a site HAS ads. I remember someone else mentioning this–in the status stream maybe? And I immediately disabled my adblock to check.
My blog’s the same way now. An ad after almost every post. I checked Teaconomics, and there’s no ads on the front page, but going into individual posts, there’s one at the bottom, right before the comment window.
Definitely seeing Sorori’s ads too. At least they’re not huge, intrusive ones with flashy pictures.

Thanks for confirming that you are seeing ads as well.
This is a pretty big issue for us (even tho they are small ads) since we have always said we will not profit off the blog. Its sort of the mission statement that Anne & Jennifer started the blog on and right now with ads on the site it looks like there is money coming in. I’ve messaged Peter and sent a tweet to him as well but haven’t heard anything back. I know Jennifer has also been trying to get a hold of him and Jackie for some time as well.
Anybody have any ideas why this started up or how we can fix it? I thought it might have been a widget or something maybe gone askew?
Again, Thanks all for your assistance and help!

I turned off my ad blocker but I didn’t see anything.

That’s really odd. Hmmm.. Anne, Jennifer, and I see them. Jennifer is actually the one that brought the issue to my attention. Thanks for trying to help. Hopefully we will hear back from Peter soon. Its been a while since we’ve tried to contact but hopefully something is resolved soon.

Still haven’t heard from Peter – or anyone – this is not good – now I’m seeing a lot of 404 errors on forums, too!? What’s going on!? can someone please let us know ASAP? Thanks!

Yup! When you try to view the forums on tea trade it pops up with a 404 error…and nothing else is viewable. When you click on recent conversations you can view those, tho 🙂

Yeah, there’s a few problems like the menu on certain pages links to /tea-forums/ instead of /forums/, and /tea-forums/ doesn’t actually exist, so you get a 404. There’s also a few threads that are 404, such as the stickied ‘mysterious ads’ thread.
