This is only happening when browsing on my iphone, and only happens on LPF.
Any time i try to load a page, i get redirected to this Ad site.

here is the screenshot of it.

and I've seen things, last few days in LPF from my iPad I never saw prior.

I have not seen my dreaded Disney popup all day, though. (fingers crossed)

You guys are all missing out!

Distillate said:
I just had the fun experience of hearing 4 audio ads play over each other in two ad windows on LPF. One window played a Wall Street Journal ad which believe it or not went on for well over 30 seconds about fermented herring from Sweeden.
Evidently:
Surströmming (pronounced [sʉ̌ːʂtrœmːɪŋ], Swedish "soured (Baltic) herring") is a northern Swedish dish consisting of fermented Baltic herring.
Then an ad for cofee.
The other ad banner played the same ads in reverse order at the same time.

I think I'm still trying to clear my head from all that! lol!
I win! I win! :na:
:crackup:

Hi guys, sorry for any troubles with this. The ad networks I am using should not be causing popups, redirects, etc. I browse LPF a lot on my iPhone and never once saw a popup or redirect (my phone isn't jailbroken, no apps installed, etc, not sure if that would make a different). The best I can do in these situations is report it to the ad networks.

In the last few months I've only heard audio ads maybe 3 or 4 times at most.

Unless this was something that happens a lot (e.g. over 5% of all page loads for all LPF users [not just a few]), I can't just stop using ad networks that LPF relies on for revenue

Again, I really wish this was something easier for me to fix (if I ever ran my own ad network I would make sure dumb ads and redirects / etc never happened), but I can't control how other ad networks function. I can report ad-hoc issues but that often doesn't help. If removing an ad network I would need to increase donation goal by like $200/month.

Thanks for the understanding

Something is kinda off with the ad network here lately. I haven't had anymore of the pop-up ads since the other day, but I've gotten a couple of the talking ads in the past couple of days. It's easy enough to just mute the volume, but I usually have music playing while I surf LPF.

The talking ad I'm getting tonight is for Car Max. The ad links to the following url: []http://www.carmax.com/?adcode=OVYYUMPRVT0101HIM[]
