    The hijacking/re-directing keeps getting worse and worse. Stop sucking please.

    There are browsers for Android that Block this kind of malicious dirt. In this case it is legit self-defense, since no one seems to give a crap

    My iPhone and iPad are getting the malicious ads too... this site, and a few others. The ad server companies need to do a better job of stopping this garbage. So annoying. Obviously don’t click on it :)

    How do you control pop ups on an iPhone?

    Site is unusable on my iPhone if not connected to wifi...has been for weeks, and still today 11/18/2017 "congratulations $1000....." popup crud with the hard lockup of Safari unless you carefully backbrowser and self re-direct. HORRIBLE.

    Also Sevenstring.org (which is a similar appearing website as MLP) has the identical issue.

    Any fixes guys?

    Popping ads are back with a vengeance on my iPad. I had to re-enable AdBlock again. I don’t think I will ever disable it again for this site. Sorry for your lost ad revenue.

    Every. Damn. Time.
    This is the ONLY forum I have this issue with. Why is that?
    I love MLP. I really do, but I won't be accessing via my iPhone (Chrome browser) until this is addressed.
