    I had no idea adblock had their app working for Safari mobile now... and your screen shot was obviously not from a mobile device. So yes, providing the link does actually help.

    sleazy rider helped me out with the safari mobile link to adblock. Only those of us on mobile devices are getting this issue.

    I don't see these obnoxious popups, but I couldn't actively support any site demanding money to not post malware-like ads. I keep waiting for the reports of them to stop before becoming a paid supporter. Is advrider taking the low road with their marketing?

    Thanks checking with confiant. Let me know if you’re still seeing it with any frequency at all. I would expect an occasional one off. The confiant system is constantly trying to block new techniques spammers use across the web.

    Also long weekends seems to be a time they like to do larger attacks. We’re ready this time with a quick switch to turn networks off.

    Thanks, any specific device and browser you're seeing it come through? Consistently or more random/ one off?

    The forum is unusable. I get locked out the first thread I click on. “Congratulations AT&T Customer!”.

    All day long today. I was lucky to get this post in before.

    I started getting the “congratulation” pop ups yesterday, even worse today. iPad user. There was a time last year too, but they went away.

    I don’t really see the benefit of the ads, which I don’t mind (unless I’m on a slow connection). Since the ads started I haven’t seen one that interested me, most I can’t even tell what they are sellling. But the pop up crap is getting irritating, Do these pop up things make money for someone? Do they “go away” if an inmate becomes a “supporter?” I’m assuming that most of the ads aren’t being vetted by ADVrider staff, so who decides what inmates are bombarded with?
