    I keep getting redirected to spam when accessing threads that end up in a continuous loop that you can't back out of.

    Websites are all xxxxxx.xyz (most current ones were xlbjejnhom.xyz and jkgvephmhg.xyz)

    Let me know if you need anymore specific information.

    Happened to me twice yesterday on mobile. Had to open a new tab in Chrome, close the old one and navigate back.

    I've gotten as well. The first is a chance to spin the wheel and when you hit the back button you seem to end up on some sort of Walmart facebook page that is inescapable.

    This is weird. Let me report this. I think it has to do with some changes I made to the forums last week when we got attacked by those Chinese spammers.

    I can't believe anyone can use the mobile site with Chrome . It consistently freezes on me when I try to open the menu. I have been forced to use an ad blocking browser .

    I haven't seen the redirects probably because I'm using an ad blocking browser .
