Ebay’s f.txt advert popup

I had this pop-up on my screen a few times whilst browsing ebay today.

ebay_f_txt_ad

Opening f.txt … from: https://ad.doubleclick.net

(You’re probably not going to want to open such a thing)

I tried to contact ebay but:

  1. you can’t e-mail them about random stuff (only phone them, it seems)
  2. ‘website faults’ or ‘issues with adverts’ don’t seem to be part of their support section
  3. I almost posted on their support forum, but that resulted in this error:
Ebay support forum: You do not have sufficient privileges for this resource or its parent to perform this action....

Which is why I posted it here instead 😉

Because my blog isn’t powered by Lithium *rolls eyes*

Powered by Lithium Technologies... [re]connecting brands with their most passionate [and frustrated] customers [because those brands don't like to talk to them directly by e-mail]...
