    Sorry to say, I didnt want to block all ads on this site to help support the site.... but it seems like as long as there is ads on this site, this will occur, so my only choice was to download adblock on both my phone and ipad. Ive had it downloaded for a couple of months (since the last big round of browser takeover spam attacks) and havent had it happen since.

    Why doesn’t this ever happen on any other website I visit? ADV is the only one with these ads that take over your entire screen and won’t go away until you close out?

    I wonder if it’s a secret ploy to get people to subscribe to ad-free content

    OK baldy, et all;
    I’ve had it! 4x in the last hour. If this really is a ploy to extract money from the people who produce the content YOU ARE PROFITING FROM, with all due respect, F-you. Thats shitty and cheap.

    I’m out.

    hey guys - I've been hit with the spam re-direct as well. Working on getting them off. I also had it happen to me on businessinsider and espn.com. It's a wide scale attack across the internet, keeping things on for now while the tech guys at confiant trouble shoot. They usually nail it down within a few hours but we'll pull the networks if we need to.

    And no we're not doing this to generate subscriptions

    I did the same this morning & cleared history.

    No more pop up’s ! A big kick in the ass to whomever caused that mess. PS, I was considering joining because I really like this site, but I don’t know now.
