We understand disruptive advertisements lessen the enjoyment of your FlyerTalk browsing experience. Please post all disruptive advertisement reports here; your full report (see above) will assist Internet Brands / FlyerTalk in handling these expeditiously. Admin / Tech attempts to respond to all reports speedily, but eliminating problem adverts may require communication with advertisements suppliers or devising technical solutions that may require time. (Internet Brands operates during customary and usual work hours on the U. S. West Coast; holidays, weekends, etc. are observed.)

To see how to include a screen shot in your post, once you have taken the screen shot follow the instructions "Inserting a photo or image from your device into a post:" in the first post in the thread http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/techn...mage-post.html

NOTE: Internet Brands and FlyerTalk discourage the use of software that modifies your FlyerTalk browsing experience (e.g. ad blocking software). IB / FT declines all responsibility for the use of such software and can not provide support or assistance if such software is used. As well, we remind you IB / FT can only provide FlyerTalk free to members because of the financial support of advertisers; using ad blockers denies IB / FT income that would normally pay for your free community membership and browsing experience..

Posts suggesting or discussing use of ad blocking etc. software will be summarily deleted.

Same thing happens to me. Probably will stop using FT altogether on mobile because it's so consistent and frustrating.

I'm using a Galaxy S7 Edge / Chrome / USA

And can I also say that posting really large screenshots of irritating ads is now becoming irritating in itself !

Agree with Silver Fox post #328. Flyer Talk has become unusable on mobile, hijack happens every single time. Does management not notice this happening themselves?

I guess that explains a lot. I think some of us would be less frustrated if someone from Internet Brands got on this thread and said they were working on the problem. It's lack of any feedback that is frustrating. Maybe they did, and I missed it?

Nearly every time I'm on this board I get redirected and only on this forum. It has gotten to the point that when I log on Kaspersky gives me a possible scam site warning. When asked by the software if this is accurate I send Kaspersky a yes, with the redirects always going to scams.

Indeed, if you have screenshots, please do what I did..

Use:



So that it hides the image for those scrolling by.

That'll be all.

Just got a Google warning about Www.nameok.win. on mobile. Of all the websites I visit, ft.com is the worst.

I think the level of feedback from IB within this thread says it all really.

Gotten this one twice today complete with the Google red background warning signs.

And +1000 on the second part, FT is the only site I frequent that has these issues.

Same and it's especially bad on mobile. Perhaps an ad agency needs to be left altogether. It's getting ridiculous.

If we cant get ads in order, we might as well just add a tax on Secret Santa or an entrance fee to large DOs. Seriously, these issues have been getting progressively worse over the last few weeks not better

That doesn't work if I'm uploading images using FT's attachments feature.

More annoying ads:
