I would routinely get blocks and redirects to other sites only when using the forum. I installed the free Norton ad blocker app on my iPad and have had no issues since.

Definitely. I even had people talking live through the app while open last week. Freaked my wife out. Sounded Mandarin.

If you have a screen grab of these can you share it? It helps us to track this while we try to replicate it. FYI @Lalji works with us.

The site will work great on your browser and we promise not to talk to you and freak out your wife. :)

I know the issue is with Tapatalk and not then forum itself (at least in my case).

It reminds me of when my daughters had walkie talkies when they were toddlers and sometimes would end up on the same channel as nearby oil workers who would drop f bombs and start yelling at them telling them to get the “f”’off their channel. Fortunately instead of being scared they thought it was hilarious.

Thanks

The right attitude to have for sure. HAHA!

These are sometimes rogue ads fed through our network. We would not permit these ever and sometimes they find a way to get let on here through an ad partner. The URL its trying to redirect you to and a screen grab is sometimes all we need to figure out who's hand gets slapped on the ad side. Sometimes it takes a bit more digging when the spam ad buyers are clever. Your reporting helps a bunch. Sometimes we have trouble replicating these right away since they will try to geo target with IPs and focus on one side of the coast or the middle of the US as an example.

No signs of intrusions of the forums under Safari or Chrome. No incidents noted...though the text editor has been known to put “eh” on the end of my posts.

That is usually from the operating system upgrade "Maple Syrup". Check your keyboard and spell check settings. If if forces you to spell color with a u you know that's it.
