Default message.snopes.com would like to use your current location

I was just browsing the board on my phone and a couple of times a notification popped up: "message.snopes.com would like to use your current location. Allow/don't allow". I can't see any reason for the board itself to need to know my location. Is one of the ads doing this?

Computer

It must be an ad. There's no app in the board that would care or ask about your location.
