Yes! I just noticed the past couple days when I access the site from my phone. I have an ad blocker on my computer so no problems there.
Yep. This has been a complaint of mine for ages though it did seem better for a bit. It has definitely gotten awful the past week or so.
And yes, I know I can use an an blocker but the DIS is the ONLY site I visit that has this issue. The problem isn't my phone. The problem isn't my browser. The problem is clearly with the DIS and something they do or some setting they use. It would be nice if they would fix it.
Is it an adblocker for an Android phone? I use adblocker on my desktop, and that works great. But have not found any for phone, where the popups are incredible.I would love to let the DIS get the ad revenue for hosting this site, but the popups were intolerable and there was no response from management, so now I’ve downloaded an ad blocker. Problem solved.
Try that Norton Ad Blocker. Works great on my iPhone and iPad.For maybe a week I’ve occasionally not been able to even view the boards from my iPhone. Half of the time the pop ups open a new window and tell me I won something, and half of the time it takes over my current window and I have to close it and open the page again. Then it happens again. And again. It is only when on the dis, amd I am on tons of other pages from my phone. These aren’t like regular ads, like for things I’ve been looking at or searching for recently,
which I am used to, they seem like a more malicious type trying to convince me I have a virus or need to do something to win a prize, etc... I don’t understand why it isn’t being addressed?! Telling me to figure out an ad blocker isn’t addressing it, and I don’t see why I need to figure it out when it’s only this site. I’ve read about it on so many threads I followed that I finally came over here to post.
