not necessarily. anti-virus 'add on features' provide 'warnings' about bad sites.
they also 'auto report' suspect sites.

and time to time I get quirky responses from various websites - 'access prohibited' and the like.



which is a different issue than obnoxious ads injected into the site.

In my case my Norton blocked me when clicking on opening the chat board BEFORE I got in. I figured something was trying to take me somewhere other than the chat board and Norton caught it and stopped it.

for me, it only re-directed me on Safari. Firefox on Mac OS worked, but Safari re-directs me about half the threads I read. I didn't Windows yet but since its only Safari, I just stopped using it.

This is behavior that I reported to the moderators a couple weeks ago. ....

I hope this helps.

Yep, I could have written the same post as you: I’m running OSX, with Sophos, behind a robust router firewall, and had the same experience a month or so ago. I immediately reported it to the Mods.
