As of a minute ago I'm getting ads on every MSE page I visit.
I get a vertical one on the left and an horizontal on the bottom.
I'm hoping this is some sort of virus my computer got, which seems possible since no one asked about this yet.
Can you please confirm this?
I really can't be arsed with these ads every time.
Edit: after I opened about fifteen new MSE pages, the bottom ad seems to have disappearead and I'm now only bothered by the vertical one.
I also scrolled my mouse over the ad and it links to MSE, so unfortunately it seems like it is a MSE feature. It seems to be related to this:
