Default Mobile popup ads on THT -- PLEASE ADD A SCREEN SHOT SO WE CAN NERF THEM

I keep getting redirected to goodluckday website when looking at THT on my iPhone. It only happens on this website. I tried clearing my cache but that didnít help. Any other ideas?

Same issues for me too. Been a week or two getting redirects to goodluckday.site on the iphone only - very frustrating. I've read it may be due to do the host website (THT) ads that contain javascript that cause the popups and redirects we are experiencing. Not being a software engineer the javascript piece is outside of my wheel house but clearly it is isolated to THT website for at least two if us.

Default Lucky spin ads

Either Iím the luckiest person on the web or THT needs to get their viruses under control. I canít visit this site without an ad popping up and ruining whatever I was reading.

Perhaps you should consider investing the 15 bucks and join up.

i don't get popups, and i still have my 15 bucks. so Sandyhook you have a virus.

PS i find extorting money from people who otherwise provide content to this forum to be a bit distasteful.

Using an apple product?

If so try downloading a different browser. There is a hole in Safari that allows malicious advertising through.

thats y youíre a top 10 Mod. You came with solutions instead of snarky remarks. That seems to have done the trick.

Default What I *hate* about THT...

Iíll start: The incessant ads that only happen on this mobile site. (If it was my phone, wouldnít it happen elsewhere?)

Anyone else dealing with this? Just about makes THT unusable.

I donít get those. There is some setting that I canít remember now, but it will stop those ads. Someone had posted it here a long time ago (directions on what to do) and I did it and sure as sheet it stopped it!
