Pop ups ads and dodgy redirects.

Postby shux27 » Tue May 22, 2018 12:16 am

Ok while I appreciate that this site exists is there anything that can be done about the horrible pop ups? It’s 2018 and neither tscelebs or celeb pix have it. Can you explain why it happens? Again I’m coming from a loving place here. :)

i just use adblock and the old trick of editing the 'hosts' file in 'system32/drivers/ect'
i no longer, no matter what site it is, allow ads. this is due to injected viruses within thee ads themselfs....i keep telling people on facefook groups on otherthings not to click on or pass them shitty fake news sites about as they are sometimes full of virus crap.

Yes but this site by far the worse and I am using Safari on iPad and have now got Ad block installed. But really we shouldn’t be exposing people to shady shit in the first place.

Is it just a case of paying the bills?

Are you getting pop-ups while on the forum or just after you click on a thumb?

I'm using Opera and have adblock plus and i don't get any pop-ups except sometimes after clicking on a thumb.

Well, she used to be not on that side before the big change, and now she's, umm, err, not on this side. --->

I mainly use my iPad and without a blocker you get constant tab openings when touching a link or a form. With a blocker it’s better but still sometimes an ad will come through.

Surprised none of our glorious leaders have posted in this thread with any info they may have.
