I tried to reply to the ocficial thread, but kept getting bombarded with congrats you won type ads. Sometimes they show up as a you have s virus to take a survey.

All of them are a pop up that takes you to a secondary site that will not allow you to leave unless you hit the ok button. Then they want you to do something else such as take a survey or give your info to them. Never done that so I don't know what comes next.

If I'm lucky enough I can hit the menu button at the top of the search bar in crome on my lg stylo 3 phone. Go to history delete the offensive ad usually 2 to 3 pages. Then go back to the origional page I was using.

Well when trying to reply to the official thread I had at least six pages with more poping up in history as I was trying to delete them the first time I got to history. As soon as I got back to the thread it started again, and I has to go to my homepage on Crome.

Finally got back here. Sorry this seems to be the only way to reply. I did trky replying again with the same results. These types of ads only hapen when I'm on ATS. Love ATS, but don't like being forced off the thread I'm reading or trying to reply to.

You can move this to the official thread.

Same, was pissing me off for awhile. It seems to be spastic.

Heads up for those that don't know..

I believe using an adblocker is against site T&Cs.

And yup, those redirects are pretty damn annoying.

Makes visiting the site on a phone completely impossible. I get redirected every few seconds. They aren't pop ups, they are flat out redirects.

This congratulation ad is making ATS unusable.

This is the only website that it pops up on.
