    Just seems kind of weird to have this pop up -- never seen anything like this here.

    I've seen a lot of these threads. Seems it comes from BHW.

    I saw this exact survey few months ago. But it has not popped up again. Check your extensions maybe.

    it is legit. There is a thread in the feedback forum and an admin responded to it. There is an opt out link somewhere too.

    If its not part of BHW, you could have installed an addon for your browser that shows adds sometimes. Yesterday I opened firefox for the first time in ages and I had ads on the login page for my own website.

    Thank you HerpDerpSlerp, you just saved me from a system restore lol.

    I don't mind popups at all, hey if BHW wants to monetize with it, go for it. I just don't like the fact that -- at first glance -- it gives me the impression that my kid installed some virus when I let him play flash games on my laptop lol.

    Ok cool, thanks.
