    If you don't want pop ups, pay the ransom.

    Fucking shit I’m getting them too, and not even clicking anywhere near an ad, just clicking a watched thread and a new window opens on my iPad with some bullshit.

    Apple platforms? ( i know @enduro0125 is)

    I ask cause, i've not seen them in any form for awhile now, but i"m using Chrome/Android, and perhaps it matters for @Rudy and crew to know which OS.

    Page redirects, pop up dialogs, and browser hijack two times this am. To the point of killing browser, restarting, and then killing what was the page I had advrider on quick before the click dialog pop up could come back.

    Opera on iOS phone

    Ads are one thing, browser hijacks are malicious.

    Seems to happen when clicking on the “expand to view” control when reading a reply to a quoted post that is too long to show.

    I believe when that ad I posted is on your screen, Im finding it only appears at the lower page ad, no matter where you click, it happens. I find if I see that ad, 100% of the time I will get a redirect.

    I have my ipad with safari open right now, and also a PC with firefox open. Im refreshing both screens. I can only get that ad to appear on my ipad, I have yet to see it on my PC.

    I can’t even reply directly (quote) a post, get redirected immediately. Can only post stand alone. Guess it’s time to nuke the cache. This one is persistent.

    I'm getting a variation of the same pop-up. It's only happening on Advrider and I will be done here unfortunately unless there's a fix, it's been going on for weeks. I'm sure Baldy and team are just as frustrated

    pop up hijacking all over again on IOS. If I was an advert/sponsor there’s no way I’d want to be associated with a site that hijacks users browser with pop ups. What is this 1998?

    It’s the ad that’s in circulation by google for those of us using safari... until that ad is removed from circulation, it won’t go away

    19 pop ups blocked in single event. I’ll check in a few days to see if they have this under control. Really sad to go from no ads, to pay the ransom or suffer the worst possible user experience. Good luck.

    I’m not using safari. Using Opera browser on iOS, FWIW

    Opera is supposed to be better at blocking this crap but still some get though.

    I get it on my iPad, both in chrome and safari. Cleared all my browsing data. Pop up comes back only when I come back to ADV rider.
