It's like I'm browsing some shady porn site. Don't act like you don't know exactly what I mean.
I may be misinterpreting a cryptic introduction, but I do believe this topic belongs in the Off-Topic Discussion.
It's about the site itself. It's not crypitc. When I'm on here on my phone, I get an ad that looks like it's a legit virus. A lot of these types of boards occasionally use some shady sponsors. I scan my phone for viruses all the time, so I don't believe it's just me, and it definitely only happens here.
Edit: as to the proper forum:
Yes I do occasionally as well. I brought them to the attention of the higher ups a while back and they disappeared for a good while but seem to be creeping back in.
I used to get them but I think they stopped for me some time ago.
Hey -- bad quality ads aren't acceptable, so...
If you hit one of these, please screengrab it and PM it to me. Please also if you can view the page as its source (In Chrome: Right click >> View as Source), pull all that text and send that to me too. I know it's a lot, but this helps me track down where the problem is and shut it the hell down.
Just happened again, but it's only on Android and I couldn't figure out how to take a screenshot, lol. I have to close the browser any time it happens.
It says your device us full of viruses because of all the porn you look at while Jesus cries. Blah blah. And the phone vibrates like its a real alert and pops up one of those dialogs that pop up and don't let you click anything until you give it an answer.
I'll have to look up how to take screenshots or see the code...
It has been happening to me as well. I will take a screenshot next time.
Just wanted to bump this. This site is borderline broken on Android now. The ads are intrusive and it practically makes you randomly close the tab and start over.
It's the only ad you'll see, pretty much. It links to a page that forwards you to a page, that forwards you to a page, and has one of those dialogs that pop up that prevent you from leaving the page, so if you click that one away, you go back to the page that puts you right back on that page again.
This is why my tablet won't work
