Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

tried to redirect me again two days ago (something like "gamers.de") but firefox prevented and I was able to block the site. No more problems so far.

Got it again, leading to http://promo.dphotographe.top/iphone7us.html
Fix it.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

Just another day on DVDTalk dot com.
Spoiler:


If I may... I think we can gather the following from all the posts here:

1. It's ONLY happening on mobile devices (phones and/or tablets)
2. It's happening in Chrome and Safari browsers on iPhone and Android. Doesn't seem to be happing on Edge for Windows Phone but nobody's targeting a platform that's all but dead.
3. It's happening whether you use the desktop or mobile skin; doesn't matter which.
4. We've provided a ton of screenshots or links to the pages we're being pushed to.
5. It's been going on for many months.

Did I miss anything?

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

I actually had a call with IB last night. This was one of the topics. My understanding is that this is coming from the ad company that produces all the ads. If they run out of ad space they farm it out to another sub contractor who produces ads. I'm guessing some of these are how shall we say, questionable at best. IB can report the bad ads to the ad company and they are supposed to take them down. That is the best we can do for now.

Time for a new ad company. Telling the users we have to live with takeover ads isn't acceptable.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

That is some horse shit right there.

Ads that pop up on a new tab are shit.

Ads that pop up on the current tab, making it impossible to go back to the site you're on without clicking on the ad (potentially causing bigger problems), or being forced to shut the browser down, reopen it, and quickly close the ad before it gets a chance to load again is garbage-tier amateur horse shit for the worst of the scummy sites of the internet.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

I can't imagine this really attracts more users to this site nor inspires those here to stay. I hope it gets fixed soon as this is my #1 go-to site..


And btw I just got nailed again minutes ago... Sucks !

Here's another from a couple minutes ago. I'm tired of winning. We are way beyond ridiculous now.

Re: Ads redirecting me to cam girl site MERGED

I haven't gotten one of these in a week or so.

I wonder how long it will be before we start getting those iOS ads that use javascript to seize your browser, claim that they're the FBI and have found illegal content on my iPad/iPhone, and I'll be arrested if I don't buy a $300 Green Dot card and give them the number.

(Those were a pain in the ass. Finally found out that to unfreeze iOS all I had to do was disable javascript.)

2 more take over ads in a row just now. I just deleted the bookmark on my phone. Not worth it to browse the site on mobile.

What I do on my S7 is hit the home button, open active apps, and close the browser. I reopen my bookmark and go back to reading about everyone's opinions on our new national political nightmare.

This may very well be the end of this site if more people get ticked and don't come back... I wish they would fix this soon....

Just adding that DVDTalk is impossible to use on mobile due to the hijack.

I get it once a day on average.

Anyone remember The Sixth Sense ad debacle?
