    Like how you're ignoring my posts to remove outbrain from this forum?

    Just so you know I have ublock strict mode and JS blocked, so money is not being made from the clickbait content regardless.

    Is it actually Outbrain is responsible for serving these malicious ads?

    google "outbrain clickbait" and you will get the AIDS CANCER information that you're looking for

    and probably they're the source for the BIG ADS TUMOR here in NBR network



    if you use ublock strict, https everywhere, and noscript you're relatively safe. ASIDE FROM LOGIN NOT USING HTTPS AYYYYYY >________>

    Your concerns have been noted, Mobius 1. I've sent it up the chains available to me where the decisions are made. I always hope for the best.

    Best,
    Charles

    **** this is pissing me off. The site is nearly unusable on mobil since these Facebook looking ads came back. Can barely go 5 minutes without losing my page completely.

    EDIT:

    Observation #1:

    I don't seem to be subject to these Chrome browser takeovers when I browse in "desktop" mode from my Android phone. (Click "..." Chrome menu button and select "desktop site" check box.


    Observation #2:

    I am currently testing the Chrome flag that's supposed to address this issue. I will report back if it works 100%.

    As always, we'll look into it.
    (Again, sent up the chain where decisions are made.)

    Our development team has noted there are ad issues with Chrome on mobile devices and have taken steps to block ads that cause issues. This was done very recently (today, I believe). If you guys see anything let me know and I will report it.

    I had this problem a while back and after doing some snooping around, I found that if you go into your profile, then preferences and set browsing to "VB 3.X-fluid, it seemed to help in my case. I'm using a Samsung S8 plus. My browser is chrome.

    Hope this helps, it did for me.

    Thanks, I basically stopped surfing here on my phone because mid-post I would be hijacked for an ad I couldnt do anything but close the tab for.

    I experienced this on android chrome today - really obnoxious redirect, and then switched to Samsung Browser with Ad blocking, no problems after that.
