We think it was an issue with an ad partner, and we are still making sure.

Me too...not even clicking on anything...just reading a thread and BAM - I get this re-direct. This has been happening consistently for about a week now. I think you guys have been hacked.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

I'm using browsers and this ad redirect thing is happening often as well. As soon as I click a thread to enter a topic, it would immediately redirect to an ad. I would have to use the back arrow to go back 2 pages else the ad keeps loading itself with only backspace.

I am using firefox, and most of the ad redirects seem to occur with threads in TV talk (for me at least).

Once yesterday. Tried to redirect me to a gamers ad or something while clicking on a thread in the political forum. I'm using firefox.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

And this has just turned absolutely offensive now...

These bastards redirect you 12+ times such that you can't even get away with a backspace anymore.

To add insult to injury, it happened again when I clicked on this very page!

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

Ugh, I'm getting that WebPromotionsUSA thing too. Strangely, the other redirects were always immediate; for this one, I was leisurely reading through a thread and had scrolled down a good bit of the way through the page before it triggered. It's happened to me three times in the past 15 minutes.

Yep...me too...got re-directed 5 times in a row as soon as I clicked on something in the forums.

And you guys wonder why we've lost so many members. Sheesh.

Here's mine from earlier today (it seemed to stop a few weeks ago, but it's back to beyond ridiculous again).

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

I got another string of a dozen or so redirects, this time to something at play.leadzupc.com (although Malwarebytes blocked the page itself).

Hey guys. We made a change to our ads last night. Is anyone still experiencing this?

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

I think it happened to me again earlier today on my phone. I quickly closed out of it without paying attention to the exact link/site.
