Can we please not have advertisements like this? Ruins the entire experience.

Me too. I've been getting a variety of redirect ads on chrome mobile (android) that are making the site practically unusable. Fake Amazon listings, fake virus warnings, fake prizes... And they activate up every few minutes. :(

I’m on safari on iOS and I’m getting the same thing. Started up a few days ago. Very annoying. I could be typing out a long reply and then I get redirected to some fake “Untrustworthy website” notification or Amazon prize nonsense.

From CR Reina

"It's likely a bad ad coming from a thid party network that is beyond our control. The issue typically resolves itself within a day or two. We are constantly screening our partners to make sure we work with the most reputable networks in the industry, but these types of ads occasionally make it through their filters."

I'm still getting some of these redirects a week later. I think maybe they're a little less frequent, but definitely still there. I understand this is probably still outside your control, but figured I would let you know.

Redirects on iOS are getting worse, not better. It's increased significantly for me over the past two weeks. Multi-thread topic on it here:

I;m on a laptop using Chrome and I've had a number of redirects lately advertising that I have won a new Iphone if I complete the below quiz. In all my years on this site I've only ever had this on mobile.. now I'm not safe on my laptop.. this needs a fix.

It's getting worse, to the point I've been redirected 10+ times in a day. Somebody should be contacting that third party...

I've been getting these redirects on this site for a couple of weeks now on mobile with multiple browsers. This really needs to be addressed. It makes this awesome site borderline unusable

As others have mentioned the redirects are getting worse. To the point that I can no longer read a page or post a response without a fake virus alert or a "you've won" popup. Even writing this response I was redirected twice before I could finish this post.

I have been assured this is being aggressively looked into.

I'm having a horrible time with free Amazon gift card ads. Happens regularly, as in most times I use the site on mobile.

(copy-pasted from the original Stanza thread)

Take a look at this c**p FFS :banghead: :banghead:

The page keeps loading as long as that Stanza **** is there, it drains the battery, and slows everything down. Whose bright idea was this?

p.s. not even mentioning the stupid ad on the top of the page. I’m seriously done with the mobile website.
