I know this is trivial but it is this kind of BS that makes your product almost as bad as what you fight off with it.

I left Minecraft running so that villagers could finish a project. They never finished. They never finished because you popped an advertisement to upgrade an already bought and paid for premium product and took focus from the game which activated its pause. Not only already bought and paid for just bought and paid for last month. The items in the notification bar are bad enough but the do not take focus away from other things. This did.

You've done this before so I already know your response. "We thought this was a good deal and just wanted you to see it." The idiot from Nigeria thinks he's giving you a good deal with his spam also. The only difference is that his spam wasn't coming out of a product with a subscription and taking over focus of your screen.

Boy do I agree.  I'm approaching renewal time (after many years) and may dump it.  The Popups spook my wife and kid when they are on the computer and think something is going wrong.

This should not happen in fullscreen mode. Was minecraft running like that? We will check it anyway.  Btw there is some kind of solution: setting->general->notifications->silent mode (in paid version, you can enable showing detection dialogs).
Thank you for reporting.
