Dodgy Adverts

on Sun Apr 08, 2018 11:49 am
I'm starting to get very tired of dodgy adverts on this forum.
It goes straight from a forum page to one of these "Congratulations, you've won a prize" pages. I can't click back to the forum so I have to shut the page down and open the forum up again. It's becoming a real pain.

I won’t ask what dodgy shit you’ve been looking at beforehand

I can confirm I've had the same thing - just once so far though.

It's getting worse. Just opening the forum causes an advert to pop up now.

It happens on my Android phone on the mobile site, but not on my tablet which defaults to the desktop site.

I have AVG so anything is caught in it's net. No pop ads on here so far.... But some on other forums can be a bit annoying.

I simply cannot use Photobucket (or bot oh fuckit as I now call it) because they come at you like feckin spiders Mad
