Disable it on the iPhone? Because I agree I can hardly come to the site anymore before getting hit with what clearly looks like a scam ad for a “$1000 amazon gift card”

If using an IPhone or IPad hit the back arrow as soon as the amazon ad pops up then hit the close button on the ad box and it takes you back to the forum. Still aggravating but it is a quick fix and doesn’t do it again at least for me so far unless I leave the forum then comeback. Not sure on a computer I very rarely visit the forum on anything but my IPad or phone.

So we’re all getting the same ad that is pretty obviously fishing for personal information of some kind once you “claim your $1000 Amazon gift card or free IPhone!” And there is nothing that can be done to stop it?

I visit 15+ forums regularly ans this is the only one i have problems with. Do you have any idea why? It looks like a lot of other members have the same problem. I have been a member for 10+ years and have never had this happen until recently. Suprised i have been able to type this message without having one pop up and close it down.

I have Adblock and it still happens on my iPad and phone. Maybe I don’t have it installed right but I loaded it a couple years ago when you mentioned it and haven’t had a problem until about a month ago with this amazon thing. Like I said though if I hit the back arrow when it pops up and the the close button on the amazon box it takes me back to the forum and doesn’t happen again unless I leave the forum.

Appears to be the case - I've been having this for a year. Can't get rid of it when present, it’s so bad I can't use the forum.
