Yesterday a kind Annymous commenter left this worrying message on my blog:

maybe it was just me, but today when i went to your page i got a flash floating pop-over for an online casino on top of your page. that made me sad.
I wasnt quite sure what they meant until today when the same thing popped on my blog when I was checking it at home. It made me more than sad. It made me angry.
I have no idea how it got there. But my first suspicion lies at the door of the free software that allows you to see how many people are currently looking at your blog. I don't know if it is possible that by having a link to them, they could send pop-ups, but I don't have anythig else to go on right now. I am certain it wouldn't be blogger. So, right now I am going to go and delete that facility from my personal blog. I am going to leave it on this blog now so we can all look at it for investigatative purposes. If anyone knows for certain that it couldn't be that, then please let me know. Or if anyone has any other ideas as to what caused it, also please let me know. And if anyone still gets these popups once I have deleted the code please let me know that to. I am certain it wouldn't be blogger themselves.
