Social Knowledge support

All of a sudden I'm getting a response from some site called Social knowledge support when I respond to a posting. It even requires a log in. What is this? is it spam or a virus?

Social Knowledge is who owns the site.
Seems odd that they'd email you, though.

Is it popping up when viewing the forum or trying to redirect you by high jacking your browser?

I get redirects all the time, even when I'm not even close to my device. Advertising comes from all directions and there is no add blocker that will stop them. I even get adds in my pull down menus.

I wanted to ask some of you guys if you ever get advertising related to whatever you're talking about in your own home? Even without my device being active, conversations in my home are reflected in the advertising I receive. If advertising can do this, you know big brother is doing it.

PureVPN blocks pop ups, malware, viruses, and hides your location and IP, WHILE being encrypted. I have not had a single issue since starting with their service. For under $2 a month and great reviews I couldnt NOT try it. And I LOVE it.

That would be worth it for getting rid of the advertising alone.

You know, just the other day there was a thread on here asking if anyone had a vpn because it was messing with this site? Some kind of conflict.

On my linux laptop, I run Firefox or chrome browsers with adblockplus and I rarely see an ad and I never get pop ups. I don't use my phone for forum stuff.

I'm on an android pad. It seems I have to put up with all the harrasment advertising, which also steals from my download allowance.

I was considering the VPN until this site had issues with it.
