They are non-ads in the way that it is a horizontal bar with only the text 'Ads not by this site' in it after every three posts. I have an Adblocker running so it might be replacing an ad with that text. What happened since they are now appearing? I despise ads which is why I donated money instead of having them shown.

Edit: Just tried disabling the adblocker and now I get ads for saving forests, food disasters, tornado relief etc..
Now way I display ads for members who don't want them !

The only software I've installed lately came from sourceforge and they're generally quite reputable in my mind..
Yep, browser or OS adware is the most usual reason.
Post a screenshot next time
