Hidden ads

Postby Walkers [OP] » Jun 02 2021, 1:01am

When I am looking at the website with my phone, looking at the full site, not the mobile site, if I click on one of the threads I get ads that take me away from the site. It doesn't seem to matter which thread or where I click. Maybe the first three clicks take me to ads.

Yep same here with full site on phone. If I click on a thread it opens up some scam ad saying my iphone is infected and to click here now. :roll:
If I hold my finger on the thread and then select open in new tab I don't get the scam ad.

Ironic that the advertisement for an Ad-Block app, says it contains ads...lol

But I can also recco Ad-Block, and if available for mobile, UBlock Origin and/or Discord. I use all three on my work devices and home laptop and I rarely see an ad. I also use Ad-Block Plus, which sometimes can get past the pay-wall/ad-block detectors, but doesn't allow other pages to load at all..

In this case, it is an older link redirector that is part of the site, used to increase ad revenue...but the powers that be will figure it out if it can be managed at all...

On iPhone I have found that just refreshing the page is sufficient enough for the ads to go away and I can browse the site all day long
