This is the add that comes up constantly on mobile devices. Mentioned on dockside chat. I cannot even use site on my mobile.

I’ve actually tried to “join the club” twice and both times pay-pal had an issue. Either way, I don’t think that would stop the pop-up’s, but I may be wrong.

Also happens to me on Louisiana Sportsman.

Some of these, like the Amazon ad and several others, are NOT THT ads. An anchor does zilch point chit to stop them. I know, because I've had them. They are browser hijackers. Been reported in the Tech section many times. Many are near impossible to get rid of. You have to go into settings on your phone (Android), force stop your browser app, then clear your cache, and reboot your phone in order to get rid of them. I've posted step-by-step for clearing them in the Tech section in the past.

It's the Russian hackers, man!

Could be. I rarely use my phone to access THT. Always my laptop. Never have pop ups FWIW

I have the same issue and it's annoying as hell. I've taken all the steps to clear my browser cache on my iPhone and it didn't help. From my research I think this ad is something on the site and it's a phishing attack trying to get user info.

I just stumbled into this thread. This is exactly what I have been getting for a couple weeks! You have to close that tab and open a new one or it will redirect to that page
