    Will try blocking skiamade.com with Tribal to see if that fixes it.
    The particular ad no longer displays, however it was replaced by an equally obnoxious ad at the same position.



    This is the code which was apparently inserted to display the ad:
    Code:
    <div id="gridDiv_20ca1c66-ad75-2520-dc78-c0601e220ad5" style="position: absolute; z-index: 10; width: 1640px; height: 842px; clip: rect(296px, 970px, 546px, 670px); left: -670px; top: -296px;"><div id="wrapperDiv_20ca1c66-ad75-2520-dc78-c0601e220ad5" style="position: absolute; z-index: 10; width: 300px; height: 250px; top: 296px; left: 670px; opacity: 0;"></div><iframe marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no" hspace="0" vspace="0" id="appsnack_teaser_iframe_20ca1c66-ad75-2520-dc78-c0601e220ad5" src="https://cdnx.tribalfusion.com/media/7659526/creative1.html?namejs=https://cdnx.tribalfusion.com/media/common/richmedia/html5/3.7.4-0/js/creative.js&amp;namecss=https://cdnx.tribalfusion.com/media/common/richmedia/html5/3.7.4-0/css/creative.css&amp;rnd=20ca1c66-ad75-2520-dc78-c0601e220ad5" allowfullscreen="true" style="background-color: white; width: 970px; height: 546px; left: 670px; top: 296px; position: absolute;" width="100%" height="100%" frameborder="0"></iframe></div><div id="tfac_300250214484099" style="position: relative; z-index: 1005000; width: 300px;"><script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdnx.tribalfusion.com/media/common/adChoice/tf_adChoice11.js"></script><div style="text-align: left; height: 15px; left: 281px; overflow: hidden; position: absolute; top: 0px; width: 19px; z-index: 1005000;"><img style="margin:0;position:absolute;left:0px; display:block;" src="https://cdnx.tribalfusion.com/media/common//adChoice/icon/ad_choices_i_UR.png" onmouseover="tf_e9AdChoice.expand(this,300,281);" border="0" width="19px" height="15px"><a href="https://s.tribalfusion.com/j.u?rnd=214484099&amp;redirect=http://exponential.com/ad-choices-fromad/" target="_blank"><img style="margin:0;position:absolute;display:none;" src="https://cdnx.tribalfusion.com/media/common//adChoice/icon/ad_choices_UR.png" onmouseout="tf_e9AdChoice.collapsed(this,300,281);" border="0" width="77px" height="15px"></a></div></div>

    • Ah, yes, this ad. I'd been browsing Phoronix with the adblocker turned off, but after seeing this movie window that follows everywhere as I scroll it's back on again. Sorry, I want to support Phoronix, but this is too much.

        Currently working on tracking it down to see how it shows up but so far haven't figured out which ad unit it's getting injected from, hope to have it solved soon.
