iPad winner driving me nuts

Hello,
I continue to get ads on my iPad while I'm visit FMF and only FMF. I will get the ad after one or two page changes. They say " congrats you are a winner, click ok to get your reward". But there is no ok button only a close button. If you click the close it sends me to another web site. Are you guys experiencing this with any other users. If so please inform me what to do to stop it. If not can you help to get rid of this ad forever. Again it is only from your web site, also if I go to your web site with a windows computer, there is no problem.


Thanks

JIM

Re: iPad winner driving me nuts

This site sets off my internet security like no other then it wants me to reboot after I leave because it denies access to so much content. This has always been an issue here, rogue advertisers I guess.

Re: iPad winner driving me nuts

Does the blocker come in an app for an iPad? Also when I log in I don't get the ad.

Hey there

Can you get us the URL of that ad? These pop ups have been particularly aggressive this year and tech is working on getting them blocked. They just need the full URL please.

Thanks

I made a few changes in the software I already have over the weekend, big difference!

Re: iPad winner driving me nuts

There are a few different ones around, and some alter the link just slightly to get around blocks. Tech is working on tracking down the source.

Thank you. I've sent this in to tech to have it blocked. Keep reporting them as you come across them please. Sorry for the trouble guys.
