Default Ads taking over

Dear The People Making Money Off This Site,

I have had enough of the ads stating I won a prize and over taking my mobile browsers. You can deactivate my account.

Sincerly,

One Less Member Providing Ad Revenue

On my Blackberry, if I am not signed in, I get a pop up that tells/asks if I want to ask a question. Dont see other ads.

The problem with the mobile ads are they are the annoying ones that redirect the page to the adís website and where often times the back button to get back here doesnít work (it just reloads ad website- you have to go back into browser history to quickly get back).It makes using/browsing the forum very difficult on mobile phones.

Exactly. The OP is not just talking about regular ads.

I get the ones he's talking about approximately every other week. It makes you think a virus has taken over.

I don't get any pop ups or redirect on my iPad or iPhone. I am signed in always.
