    Default Visitor survey

    Does everybody get this "Visitor Survey"? Or do I need better pop-up blockers?

    Haven't a clue what you're talking about, if that tells you anything.

    I think its a fish of some kind to exploit my information. I get redirected to the "Outdoor Directory" visitor survey, and then offered 1000$ gift certificates, ipads, etc. Definitely designed for this website across all its platforms

    Weird. And sounds dangerous. Nothing like it shows up on any of my machines.

    I'd sure report it to the site management. Click on the little black triangle with the exclamation point in it, the one down on the lefthand corner of each post.

    Interesting. If you see this again, can you take a screenshot and send it to me and Michael Strahan? Not sure if we can block it or not, but we can certainly try.

    Sounds like a targeted phish, for sure. Would make me suspect they already had a foot in the door somewhere on my machine. (But I'm paranoid that way).
