This is back - both yesterday and today it happened to me. It's a specific ad, not sure which one, but I got rid of it by simply going to a new screen to get a new set of ads.
But it's super annoying!
Next time it happens, there may be a blue triangle at the top right that you can click in order to report the ad. if not, take note of what company or service was being advertised so that I can look into it. Sorry, and thanks!

I'll look into this if it is still an issue when I get home late tonight. We no longer host the ads directly, so this is something Proboards needs to be made aware of. Chances are, they're already on it. If not, I'll follow up with them myself.
What the deal about the blue diamond on the ads? ... I noticed that and barely see it and what the scoop behind it. I've don't know anything about it.
It's a triangle, and it's a means of viewing the source of the advertisement and of reporting it to Google. Most ads have them, but not all.
Is the problematic ad still popping up for people?
Right now, the Alfa Romeo is not showing up and every once a while an AD (Alfa Romeo does that) pulls you to the bottom of the forum of and that's when I started having trouble with it.
That's the time I turned it off and I was able to resume posting and I'm on my merry ways. These problematic ads don't let me quote and post here in this forum and that's why I got frustrated with them. I have seen this happen before and my memory serve me that the Alfa Romeo is one of those ads that causes all the problems that I'm having here.
I've disabled my ad blocker now.
