I wouldn't be so envious. This survey is trying to say people stink, have yellow teeth, and are fat.

I got it too, and it really pissed me off.

We had some code in that was supposed to track stats, but apparently decided to offer surveys. I took it out as soon as I found out.

I thought the company serving this code was reputable, but I guess I was wrong. They are bound by privacy laws, so it was nothing harmful, but certainly annoying.

We've never run pop-ups, pop-unders, page takeovers or anything else like that on Songfacts. This stuff drives me nuts too.

HORRIBLE scam :(... They appear free, but its only a trial. They send a product to you, and then if you do not send it back within 10 days they charge you the price of the product they send you, because its a product trial. If you get this popup ,it is because you possibly have a virus of some kind, or have downloaded malware from them; the popup will appear for more than just songfacts.com.. it can pop up for any website. I suggest ignoring them, or trying to locate the source or location of malware and deleting it. search anti-malware in google, and download a program that will detect and delete malware (thats easiest) and then delete the antimalware program.. usually they are only trials anyways. DAMN SCAMMERS, they are everywhere

We monitor every single external source now connected anyhow with songfacts.com and we will fight the spam, scam and all the rest annoying and harmful stuff.

I just wanted to point out that there may be some kind of malwares, viruses, backdoor programs and such, that can exist on your PC and use any site url's or cookie cache or history info to do all this.
