Invasive iPhone ads

Half the time when I open a page here since the move to the new forum software, I get this:
10208

If I hit the back button, it goes to a different spam site. If I go back to the same forum page that spawned this, there’s a >50% chance it will kick off the exact same ad. If I manage to load a different forum page before the ad kicks in, the percentage seems lower.

The only other site that does this to me is Blabbermouth, and it only happens rarely there. I don’t know what the hell is triggering it here, but it renders the site almost unusable once it kicks in.

As you scream into the web of silence...
I’ve been getting the same thing. A month back or so and now suddenly again yesterday. I didn’t think all that much of it but if other people are getting it to then perhaps it’s a bigger issue than I thought.

FFS, I’m about to lose my mind over this shit constantly invading every visit to the forum...

The ads on the site are provided via a reputable provider. Unfortunately bad actors sometimes bid through this service to run ads which hijack browsers like this - we've actually disabled full screen mobile ads at the provider. If there's any report functionality visible/available, please do use it to report it back to our ad provider who will deal with the ad appropriately.
