    I used to get the "Amazon Wheel of Fortune" ad after about 2 minutes of being logged in. :D

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Doing what I can to find a solution ...

    Did you read the fine print at the bottom of that thing? You should have. 10 percent of your winnings go to me.

    Right now we believe the redirection issue is isolated to Chrome users on Android devices. I was told it's not an issue with the ads, but malware hiding in installed apps. We're still looking for a solution.

    God d*** it! I was having a wonderful mobile experience on this site for the last while and first thing this morning I get a fresh redirect I have not seen before.

    Also based on your last post, I actually installed ESET NOD's Android antivirus/security app and did an entire deep phone scan and my phone came up squeaky clean. I am so sad right now. :'(

    This one seemed a bit more aggressive too. I pressed back once or twice and it loaded like 3 other different sites in place of this. I lost the tab as usual. Ughhh..... This sucks.

    The most annoying part is the fact that a robotic woman blurts out "Congratulations Samsung user!" or something like that and nearly wakes up my sleeping toddler.

    It's starting to autoplay videos on Android Chrome. 2 videos that are the same at the same time. I basically have to close the tab.

    I understand running ads to pay the bills but it's odd that it's specific to Android Chrome.

    P.S.)

    Does anyone else notice their Android keyboard's typing and suggestions selection bar not working correctly on this site? I mean, mine has gotten better since the last nasty round of BS ads we were seeing, but the issue is still present and only on this site. It seems to somewhat coincide with the fact that my browser gets incredibly sluggish and slow sometimes when browsing this site without VPN/ AdGuard filtering for the ads and stuff. But again, even that sluggishness issue has been somewhat relieved as of late.
