A few people have commented that they are seeing ads on my blog but I don’t run ads so I’m curious how/why this is happening.Â Â A reader e-mailed me the following screen shot from his computer.
Clearly there is some strange ad which appears to be some sort of flash overlay.Â I’m wondering if my site has been hacked.Â Any ideas?

I saw it in Firefox, but it disappeared forever (even on page reloads) after I closed it the first time.
yes- big ad on the right side, it is distractful
I see it too. i think your site has been hacked.
ok i clicked submit the previous comment and it left.
It could also be spyware / adware on the persons computer.
BTW I deleted all my cookies and restarted by browser and received no ads. If it is some sort of hack it appears to be pretty selective.
Also noticed you changed the new reader message to state this blog is for everyone. I guess I can start reading the blog now.
I think it must be spyware on people’s computers because I’ve never seen the ads and I log on from at least 4 different computers.
Then again, I use firefox with ad block plus and rarely see ads.
I see the ad too. I’m pretty good about keeping my system clean and don’t think I have spyware.
I visited, and saw the ad. I refreshed, and it disappeared.
I cleared my cookies and the ad still didn’t show up again.
I don’t see ads, but everything I visit your blog on my browser, it doesn’t fully open until I increase the font; yours is the only one that does that to me, and I use Firefox. Weird.
Could it be the same word press problem that these other bloggers had?
I see the ad but I don’t think it’s spyware. All the links go to slimp.net/members/getrichslick.com.html
So was this ever resolved? I just saw the same ad on a friend’s site.
If you haven’t resolved it, let me know, I can help.
I only have ever had one or two people complain about ads. I’ve checked the “ads” from multiple computers and multiple internet accounts and I’ve never seen the ad.
When I go to a public place I usually check my website and I’ve never seen the ads. I don’t know what to make of it other than it has to be in combination with spamware/spyware or perhaps my hosting provider fixed the code.
