Which antivirus are you using? And the OS, Windows? What version?
Are you using some kind of ad blocker?

Yes it was. And yesterday I couldn't even log in to the site because one Ad after another kept coming up. And then the site told me I had used up my 5 attempts to log in.

After I waited the time to sign in again Apple gave me the message that said "Deceptive Website Warning". I didn't know what was going on so I didn't try to log in again until now. And with this log in there was no problem at all!

Avast Antivirus, Windows 10 64 home edition, and yes I have adblock plus installed, but have had that for a while, withot it causing the virus alert pic I shared on a previous page.

The alert happens on Chrome & Avast safe browser (which uses chrome programming) but not edge, which I don't like using, and only am as only browser I have that runs this site!

Gee I can't believe it I got an X rated ad. Please that is really a bit much!

I think I have finally gotten the ads blocked. After seeing that X rated ad I was willing to do about anything to get rid of them!

Ok now the site is causing virus alerts via the pop ups in Edge as well, getting way beyond a joke, and is in danger of killing of the casual browsers who don't mind seeing the odd ad in exchange for free use of the site. I'm not gonna sign up just because if I don't i'll get bombarded with ad's that trip my anti virus, I'd sign up because ei can justify doing so by th amount i'd actually use the site, which at the moment is not enough to justify joining. Please sort out the mess these pop ups are causing, otherwise you're really gonna see a drop off in visitors, as there seem to be no browsers safe from pop up induced virus alerts!

This ad thing's gotten out of hand really. Site is basically unusable. Dont wanna come here often anymore because of this ridiculousness....

Seriously it is very bad. Via mobile, 90% of taps result in some popup, which you have to close fast, otherwise some persistant thing is gonna keep buzzing and lots of other BS come around. I close ads more than reading the forum. I am sure you dont need all these adds to survive, do you?

I use Tapatalk to read the forums now. Zero ads. Or the ad block plus add-on using Firefox browser does the trick also.

The site is almost at the point of unusable!
