    Guys we made some changes today that I am hopeful will reduce or stop these issues. Nothing is "For Good" but please continue to report these issues on this thread. If you want to really have some tech fun, download this on your phone https://www.httpwatch.com/download/ Its a browser that records your session on the site while you are here. And then if you get a redirect you could provide the session to me and that info would be helpful.

    Before I installed a content/ad-blocker on my phone, the pop-ups/redirections happened every time I opened the browser (MLP is my homepage). Even tried clearing everything, as most of these third-party sites use tracking-cookies, which alert them every time someone logs in.

    Now, zero issues.

    Side note: So far, I've been on for about 15 minutes, and my blocker has stopped 45 redirects.

    I'm getting pop-ups daily on MLP. I'll post a screen capture of the next one. Time to try an ad blocker I guess.

    There was a study that said at times during a 24 hour period, point accounts for over 70% of web traffic bandwidth.

    Haven't gotten one since I installed an ad/content-blocker on my phone. But, now the spam/bot threads have been ridiculous.

    One of the very few reasons I hate this new software.

    Site is still totally unusable on a phone, I keep getting redirected to scam "claim your prize" websites that kidnap my browser.

    I can't even post a screenshot on this thread from my phone, because it won't let me !
    Totally disappointed in MLP, do you need money that bad that you have to bombard people with such agressive scamware ?

    This site has really hit a low point, shameful.

    My premium membership will definitely not be renewed this time and all ads will continue to stay blocked on my macbook.

    I am also having this issue and it’s pretty annoying.
