Ad redirects on mobile devices

I use an iPhone exclusively to browse this forum, and for the last two or so weeks, I have been experiencing incredibly disruptive ads that redirect me away from this forum and onto an add page, usually "ad King" or some other ad. This happens everywhere in the forum, and sometimes makes it literally impossible to browse the forums. I will go to the forums list page, then 2 seconds later, I will be redirected. I go back, then 50% of the time, I will yet again be redirected before I could even choose which forum to browse. When I eventually manage to open a forum, the same thing happens. Then when I eventually click on a thread, yet again. And again, and... You get the idea.

Sometimes I will be redirected 10-15 times before I finish reading a thread.
This can't be the way the forum ownership wants users of this site to experience it.

I use Tapatalk - no adds at all but also no money for the site owner. That ine sounds like a hover over add. They need to go..

Hi guys,

When you see redirecting ads there are a few things we need from you in order to present this to our ad team and get them to block them:

1) Where were you on the site when the redirecting ad popped up for you?
2) A screenshot of the popup/redirecting message
3) The complete URL to the redirecting site/ad
4) Your Geo location. Some ads are targeted specifically based on where you are located.
5) What device and version are you using?

Cheers,
Sheena
