    I have an iMac at home and for the last few months I get unwanted pop-ups when accessing this site. Its the same pop-ups every time. One is a porn thing (called Bonga Cams) with a count down timer that has to expire (about 10 secs) before I can cancel it, one is a full screen request for something called MacKeeper. And I forgot what the other one is. This is the only site where this occurs. It went away when Jim did the big purge a few weeks ago. But, it all showed back up this morning. Is it just me and my computer? Any ideas from you Mac experts? It does not happen with my vintage PC on the boat or with my iPhone.

    Yikes....MacKeeper is known malware/adware. It's not CSR... you probably installed an app on your Mac and it installed some additional "free" apps without your knowledge. My kid did this on my wife's Macbook and every time she went to Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. it redirected to Search Benny then popped up a window for MacKeeper. I had to wipe the machine and reinstall from scratch.

    Yikes. I have a Mac too, and no issues with this site. But my wife did fall for the MacKeeper thing and i see that pop up from time to time.
