Up until yesterday, it's only been ads on mobile.

Starting yesterday I've been getting random redirects to various pages; thebwalmart gift card one, Costco, and a couple of others.

Thing is, I dont know which specific ads are causing the redirects to be able to report them. Can't navigate back in that tab and so closing it has been the only option.

Have had it happen while typing a response to a thread and while my phone had had the recent posts page open.

All of the above have only been happening on mobile, I get no ads at all when I am on my PC.

I dont mind the ads as I know the site is in need of revenue, but the redirects (especially when typing a response to a thread) are more than a little annoying.

Will try and make notnote of which ads are on screen from now on so that I can report said ads, but at least one redirect I had was while there was no ad visible onscreen.

The first complaint about the redirects I saw was on November 23.

I remember when a week or 2 would go by before SO would get the ad taken down. You know who is getting the ad's and that it is a constant problem for them, just swap out ad providers and see if the people who were having problems, stop having problems.

IMO this is either the new business model, maybe it will fix its self when the ad suppliers fix it OR not enough people are complaining so let them rant and thus feel better they did something (but only in one thread). It could be a plot where everyone will get them in the near future and SO will say it is the best that can be done to keep the site afloat and then everyone demands to pay a subscription fee...and it will still have ads.

This IS a conspiracy site after all, you have to expect some paranoia and distrust.

Just got redirected while a banner ad for Nordstrom Rack was displayed on bottom of the recent post page.

WHAT THE HECK?????

This has been going on for weeks for me.

I thought it was on my end...

Hey Springer!!!

Do you not want us here????

Fix this crap.

You have a great site here. How ever, I can't use this site mobile. And these little quirkes are too much to deal with.

Has this site been taken over by others???

Now I am having problems with this site on my home computer.

What the heck????

Yeah, Jaded. Getting the same stuff. Can't even use the site mobile. Now I'm have issues with my home computer.

On mobile I always get redirected to some sort of Costco scam website, I say scam because its not actually Costco.com....

Lately, all of the redirects 9ve experienced larelynhave come while the retailmenot ad was at the bottom of the page.

The browser hijacks are becoming so common that it is making ATS impossible to read.

Please end this.

Had only one retailmenot redirect since my last post, lately it's been the Michael Kors ad.



Note, this only occurs mobile, when I'm on my PC, I get no ads at all.

Technical info as follows
