The pop ups appeared on the morning of my post and have not been seen since. If they come back I will try to get a screen shot but for now I am not seeing anything.

As always folks, if there is a problem ad, I need the following information in order to ask the team to get it blocked for us.

  • What device are you using to access the site? Computer? Tablet? Phone?
  • Are you accessing the full site? Using Tapatalk or Mobile View?
  • Which operating system are you using? (Windows 10, etc.)
  • Which browser are you using? (Chrome, Firefox, Edge, IE, etc.)
  • Have you already tried clearing your cookies/cache?

A screenshot and the related URL of the pop up will help me get it blocked.

this forum uses ad software that creates pop-ups based on words in the text of a message.
that software is a whore to who ever pays it the most money.

with the result that many pop-up ads are extremely obnoxious.
altho aware of the problem, the forum management has chosen to ignore the issue.


you can go here to suppress the word-link pop-ups:
https://www.viglink.com/opt-out/non
that may or may not resolve the issue


obviously "the bad guys" are constantly finding ways to subvert any "controls"

unless and until the Forum gives up their pursuit of maximum click milli-cents, the problem will continue.

I use an iPad to access this site and see no ads except for the banner ad at the top of the forum page. The “pop up” ads that I started this thread about and what some others have experienced are of the redirect variety. They literally take control of your browser session and redirect you to a different website that is floor to ceiling advertisement. The only way out is to close your session down, perhaps clear your system memory, site cache and cookies then revisit the site. Even doing all the above didn’t guarantee it wouldn’t occur again when you revisited the site.

I hadn’t seen it happen for quite some time until the other day when I reported the redirect ads were back. Fortunately they disappeared that same day and I have not seen any since.

A lot of them are region targeted so it's hard for us to figure out how to stop them specifically from popping up. What we can do now is collect as much data about this as possible which are links, devices and IPs...and screenshots.
