On my iPhone, yes. This site is pretty much unusable on my phone, now.

This is the ONLY site that this happens on.

I hope the owners of this site realize how much money comments like this and their inaction in dealing with spam ads costs them. Not only will no one want to spend money on membership but also legitimate ads are getting zero traffic because the redirects keep people from even seeing the legit ads.

Somebody loves you at least...


By the way, they say they busted the Nigerian Prince scammer...he's pretty old, probably couldn't find someone to buy a drink at the bar.


It drives people crazy when the 'unexpected' happens and then 'somebody' must fix this! But One More Time...


Are you a member of any other sites owned by our owner, Internet Brands?


You should be able to find their logo/name somewhere on the site. Their techs all have 'ib' in the username.


What I've been trying to get at since 11 AD is that IB uses the same version of VBulletin (they own that company as well), one they developed SPECIFICALLY for all of their forums sites, exclusive to IB sites.


Ergo sum, this CANNOT be the 'only site that does this', you simply don't have any others!


If they have problems here then it's IMPERATIVE that you try hard to help and do what they ask of you. They are trying to improve their own platform, and for EVERYONE.


If you don't at least copy the URL ('web address') shown when those ads show up, even if it's a bunch of numbers, try to snap a shot of your screen...then it becomes a lot of guess work.


YOU can be the problem as much as 'they'. If you just use the device/browser like it's a thing and don't learn anything about how to really use it well you are probably going to be at the mercy of whatever Hun comes over for leftover meatloaf.


So please, let's stop screaming blue murder and go hunting for hacker wabbits.

Rollfast: Why do you keep going on about how other sites have this too? Who cares? I'm sure there are ten of thousands of illegitimate websites I would lever visit. Can we just get this one fixed here?

This helped for me. I would get redirected within seconds every time I tried to look at bikeforums on chrome on my android phone. Now at least all I get is a bunch of "redirect blocked" notifications at the bottom of my screen. Hopefully a more permanent solutions presents itself soon.

I'm an admin on another forum that also uses Vbulletin software. We don't get this pop-up thing over there, but that forum is not for-profit; we don't allow any ads.
