I emailed SP to tell them and got a response very quickly late last night. If you are having issues with the ad take a look at the article below to see how to report it so that they can fix it.

Thank you SP for listening and hopefully I won't to look at frozen vegetable ads all week!!

email response

I am very sorry that is happening when you're trying to use your tracker. I know that must be frustrating. I am not seeing that issue when I try to recreate it; therefore, it would help tremendously if you would read this linked article to learn more about our advertising standards and how to report an inappropriate ad.

With over 100 million page views per month, it is impossible for our small team to catch all these "bad ads" before they happen. Our members are an important part of the SparkPeople movement and we rely on them to help track down and block inappropriate ads, so we really appreciate it when members take the time to alert us about them so that we can remove them from the site for good.

Ugh. I'm not the only one. When will marketers understand that annoying people with their advertisements only breeds negativity toward their company/product?

I know, and it is SO annoying. I don't think SP should allow these ads to "pop up" in the middle of the screen !!!!!

I agree that it may be something that is not in SP control but I have looked for some where to email them to let them know and I just can't find anywhere to "Contact Us". Does anyone know how to email them?

I know, it is so annoying, I just keep moving my mouse way out of range. When that happens its makes me not want to even try the product I will remember it but for the wrong reasons even though it may not be their fault. emoticon

I cannot clear this pop up ad for green giant vegetable!!!! ARGHHHH I cannot track my food and have looked at the darn ad but every time I click on the Click to Close X it opens the ad website. I can't get past it.

Is anyone else having issues??
