Imagine the ads when you go to Managing liquidity in times of stress. I do hope those aren't personalized!

Good morning everyone. I deleted the cookies in my browser, and those personalized ads are gone. Have a fantastic day!

on the iphone there is no issue other than it is the iphone.
the issue is on the website from PC Windows10, using chrome.
when i come back to the W website after a little time in a new chrome tab (i get logged in automatically to W.com), i have one of those popups (like the ones I posted some days ago) appearing on my first attempt to enter a conversation/thread. i can then go backward with CTRL+Left Arrow or the Back button in chrome. Then entering the same conversation/thread doesn't make the popup appearing.

so my spam issue was annoying me any time i was erring in W forums but i think i finally solved this  issue.
FWIW/FYI it looks like it was linked to yahoo mail website that shows a subframe with ads (one can see that using chrome built-in task manager).
i deleted all my browsing data again and, in google chrome settings, I turned on "Send a "Do Not Track" request with your browsing traffic" and --at least for now-- it seems to do the trick.
Thank you!
