Try posting in a different thread. Perhaps that will help.

Hmmmm...

Yesterday I got a full page popup that was hard to get past.

This morning so far, no popups. I'm connected via wifi at a Toyota dealership. We'll see what happens when I hit the home router later today. Fingers crossed.

I hadn't seen them previously - but they seem to be popping up on my android tablet now. (Motorola Xoom.)
Annoying... but not enough to keep me away.

I am wondering if it is this site or from someplace else...

I get popups on my Android.... there is an Obama ad that seems to float over what I want to read and when I move my page, it moves also...

Very annoying....

I have seen the exact same banner on other web sites, and from Andy's comments, this is not generated by E-R forum.

Only seen the ING popup in the iPad.

Periodically get message to use the iPad app. I get that on several forums.

I don't mind the idea of apps for forums but can't see the point of having multiple apps. for all the forums I browse regularly.

Plus, I rely on email notifications for new posts to threads so when I click the link in the email, it opens up the thread page in Safari.

Does the app. keep track of what you've read in each subscribed thread? If you've read the first 3 pages out of a 4-page thread, will it take you to page 4 automatically? Does the app. use push notifications to indicate new posts?
