Adfarm forcing redirect

The site has an advert forcing a redirect to a "lucky wheel" where you are "lucky iPad winder number x".

Forced redirects are the worse form of advertising noise.

Several advertisers are being investigated at this moment for this exact issue. This one in particular has been at the top of the list. Resolution is forthcoming, thanks for the heads up.

If you are talking about this one below, we are on it. Popped up the other day. It's being taken care of.

Thanks Mod for the screen shot example! Guys if you see this again like always we will need a screen shot and the URL of the redirect to have this blocked.

Thank you,

Thanks, I wasn't able to reproduce it when I was writing up the post (despite having it happen 3x before I decided to write the post).

the spin the wheel pop up should have been taken care of by now. If there are users still having this issue, try clearing browser cache and cookies before reporting this.
