    I get those ads while using my iPad on MLP, but not my desk top. And my iPad has nothing to block any ads. But here is the weird thing: I get almost no MLP authorized ads. I actually like to get many of those because they are guitar related.

    This is getting bad. iPhone user here. This is my go-to site, the one I spend the most time on and check first. I hope something can be done about these redirects.

    I certainly agree that something should be done, with priority. I emphasize that the offending ad is not of the type for which MLP is paid to run. While MLP paid ads were controversial at first, they don’t bother me at all. But the offending ad, as I understand it, pays MLP nothing. Instead it hijacks my connection to MLP. There ought to be a law against it.

    I didn't have these happen for a week or so, then had about 6-8 back to back 12/27.

    I think "redirect" is more accurate than "pop-up".

    Just bought an ipad. This site is completely useless with the redirect ads. I even purchased adblock, which I never like to do since I like to support the site, but it did nothing. I seriously can't click through two pages without getting redirected.

    This has been steadily getting worse since the forum "upgrade". Blech.

    This may or may not help, but these damned ads have started stating that I was selected because I am a Spectrum customer (for cable TV, phone, and internet). What makes me wonder is, how do they know I'm a Spectrum customer. I wonder how many more of you with this problem are Spectrum customers?

    I don't know but, I got three of these F%#@ing things while I was trying to read your post...only on my phone.

    I am curious where these are coming from. Spectrum, iPhone, MLP, whatever...

    And to top it off, my main PC is offline and won't boot-up (not realtaed). It's a techno travisty....

    I'm on an old lap top from the closet, that's slower than a frozen snail.....but, it's keeping me connected....sorta.

    I'd really like to believe you, but this issue has been going on for over half a year !
    I used to visit MLP multiple times a day, now I just can't be bothered tbh.

    Folks, it’s happening to me too when using my iPad only.

    It also happens on a couple of local newspaper sites I visit daily, but that’s about it.

    It’s incredibly frustrating.
