Yay. A new one. Anybody else getting this today?
I had it this morning as well
Appears to be many sites spam.
Stop going to adult sites without protection.
Quit visiting adult sites....
I haven't gotten this, though I do still the old one some, "Walmart," and I read what Chris said about a future fix (pay option for ad free).
Although I prefer Safari on my iPhone (in large part for the black Reader view) I will put in a plug for a new browser, Brave, designed by a guy who designed Firefox. There is a news site I would want to visit but the ads are atrocious. I ended up putting my other news sites, weather, etc. in there as well, besides CF. It is nice having it all in one place (which used to be the default, when almost everything was free); and because of the browser's design, it easily gets around article limits. It has a lot of easy to use controls. For one or two sites I might have to tweak it by turning on or off one of the switches. It isn't rocket science; but whatever works. I also know of and use AdBlock browser. But I prefer Brave, and am likely to continue using it for news sites for the reasons stated, regardless of what's up with CF. I still use Safari mostly, and that's the only thing I use Brave for, but it great for that purpose.
For CF I use Safari on my phone generally, but switch to Brave as needed. Or maybe I read the news in Brave, as it is that time of day or whatever, and incidentally check CF at the same time there, as well.
Posts and associated links above mine make it sound like this one is more serious or potentially more damaging. But in my understanding, Brave helps block some of this stuff.
The redirects arent the targeted 'why am I getting ads for Asian brides' ads.
https://pi-hole.net. Learn it, live it, love it. I'll gladly pay for ad free, but until then I'm not going to put the safety of my data in the hands of a company turning ad space over to unvetted, 3rd party vendors.
Anyone experiencing the redirects tonight? Has happened 4-5 times tonight.
iPhone 7 using Wifi
Yep. Happened a few minutes ago. Getting really annoying.
Yep. Must've gotten in a new shipment of Walmart gift cards. IMO the site is running worse since the ad changes were made.
I've won something like 8 new iPhone 7's tonight. Thinking of opening my own store soon. PM me if you're interested.
I've had the same thing for a week on different devices.
I'll be your first customer. Gotta spend all these $1000 gift cards I've won today.
This is brutal. Can't get through a thread without 2-3 redirects. Is it a hack? Or is CF getting revenue from it (which Im sure is not the case). Gotta log off now. Or throw my iPad.
I haven't been able to get on CF on my phone in a couple days. It redirects every time along with pop-up ads I cannot close.
The biggest problem is from 3rd party advertisers. Basically there is a region of the page that they sell, unfortunately the person they sell it to resells it without vetting the ads. Ad blocker is worthless because you can buy your way onto a whitelist that will let ads still get through and since they point to google analytics/ads the site is allowed because google/twitter redirects get whitelisted. I will never block 1st party and 2nd party ads, those are rarely the problem and I do believe in supporting advertising. Unfortunately, I don't support malwareware or data theft. That's why I use ublock origin along with dns level malware/adblocking. I still see the main sponsor ads at the top of the page, it's the side page ads that I don't see and those are usually the culprits..
Ipad is worthless right now as ad-redirect happens every time I move around the page. Computer at work is fine though...
I won two yesterday so I'm set.
