It's a FREE WEBSITE. Stop complaining

You know the people running it have to get paid.. why complain?

Start your own wrbsite then..

and other things usually heard when complaining about intrusive advertising or advertising in general.

idk, I'm a scallywag, wot breaks rules. I guess..



I don't mind the standard advertisements.


The redirect was happening as I was reading not clicking. And redirected as I was trying to post hence this..

I downloaded an app called Adblock x and haven’t had a problem since.

I told Garry to stop messing with you like that. I said "dashen is smart enough to catch on to that kind of stuff, and it will only impede our intelligence gathering". Typical Garry.

So hard to find good help these days.

Yep, I'm getting them also on my Samsung Galaxy S9. Plus a highly irritating ring sound at max volume.

Bad ju-ju

same thing happens to me every so often. They come one after another. On an iPhone I turn on my airplane mode before I clear my catch twice. Nine times out of 10 that’s the end of the problem for a while . Even with Safari .

I use FF beta and never have these problems other than the always annoying banner ad in middle of the reply box. Which is caused, BTW, by the size of your soft keyboard.

FF beta on my phone, tablet on the Tmobile network.

Wow You won a special gift card and are actually complaining, you just can't please some people.

If you want to ruin your luck , I would suggest the duck duck go browser . However don't complain when you stop getting 1000 dollar giftcards.

I am surprised that ATS did not delete this post.
ATS are all about the Money.
I said how to stop this and my post got deleted.
so you will just have to find out for your self.

we live in a society of parasites...

you'd think they would get upset that an ad is making their site unusable. which this one is.

I was getting it alot, even got rid of a few of my apps thinking it was them since one of them was also being a pain in the arse. I don't know if it was my going nuts on the danged thing and hitting the back button constantly a few hundred times, and being as insistent that it let me see the page as it was for me to "claim my prize" or that I just started turning my phone all the was off and resetting it. but, its back now, couldn't even get through the first couple of posts on the first page of this thread which for some reason seems rather ironic. danged think made me have to fit my kitty for my chair at my computer... she is off sulking now..poor baby.

anyone ever follow the danged thing to the end to claim their prize.. just wondering if my hunch is right and you have to give them your credit card information to pay the process fee to get the prize, which to your surprise will be waking up one morning and finding your bank account cleaned our or your credit card maxed out.

(Disclosure: I'm on PC so don't get the redirect ads.)

I did get one from another site ages ago. Just for fun I clicked through it to see what would happen. After filling in fake details it redirected me to another server that either didn't exist or was down. It's all just a trick to get email addresses. I don't remember being asked for a credit card but it was the usual "Free Iphone/Giftcard" type deal.
