Firefox + adblock plus helps, but doesn't stop the popups, and I really didn't want to install another browser just to browse here.

I still get virus alerts if I try to use Chrom, safezone, edge or opera, and think the powers that be need to take a look at the ads they're using to support the site, as i said before i don't mind the odd pop up whilst browsing as a free user, but the fact they're tripping my antivirus is not good.

EDIT - As I post this firefox gets locked up as a pop up trips my antivirus, this really needs sorting otherwise this site will slowly die as it gets a rep as an unsafe site, therefore stoping casual users from coming near it.

I though I had gotten rid of the ads only today to find them all after I logged out of this site! These are full page ads so I had to clear them after I left the site. I have never had that happen before. I wasn't seeing them while I was posting, but they were all there after I left!

I have a lot of devices I post here with and I don't have the energy to equip each one with all these blockers so if these adds don't stop, I'm outa here

Agreed. This mess needs to stop now. the only usable place is my laptop, but my cellphone and tablet are useless now. Also I got a pornographic ad. Not cool.


I'll check back in a week and see if this mess is fixed.

I would gladly give a donation but being blackmailed into buying a subscription? No thanks. I'd never give any kind of financial info to an admin that hosts ads which aim to infect the users device.

Agreed, it's ****ing mess.. Can't even check this at work or on my mobile due to all the porn popping up.

Def not going to pay for a subscription.

The porn is especially bad :oops:

Using Chrome, I didn't see any porn. Has it been resolved?

I'm almost afraid to say this, but I'm not getting any ads at all right now.

Admin was visiting earlier, so he may have fixed it. That's why I was wondering what changed. I saw ads, but they were tolerable versus invasive/prohibitive.
