    I still get the whole page ads "you won". Without my ad-block, I cannot use the site.

    Maybe once we change ad-servers and update our forum it will all go away....?

    Hella annoying. I'm getting the pop up you won ads several times a day. Is that still in the works to be fixed?

    Chiming in "Congratulations Time Warner Cable Customer!
    Your Phone has been randomly selected to receive a $1000 Gift Card!" Congratulations, You're today's lucky visitor!! July 26 at 10:10pm (pst)
    http://54.83.183.202

    This occurs frequently/daily when I use my IPad to access Websleuths. Does anyone know how to disable this or is there an ********* (free)?

    Me too, but it's only on my Android phone ..... happens sooo frequently-- everyday. I don't even bother trying anymore.

    Dave, I know this is in the wrong place but I've already placed it on the Q and A thread - just wanted to be sure you saw it.

    We've lost our hyperlink icon above Quick Reply. What we have at the moment is for links NOT hyperlinks. Could you please reinstate it. We can always copy and paste links but there's no way at all of adding a hyperlink. Thank you.

    I constantly get the ads, too, on my Ipad. It only happens when accessing WS.

    This is happening so often that it's making WS basically inaccessible for me. It's happening on my phone, and it's not a problem on any other websites, just WS. I will follow the posted instructions next time it happens but is this going to be fixed any time soon? It's been an issue for me for months but the past week or so it's gotten 20x worse.

    Happens to a lot of people at times. tricia addressed this a long time ago, but I can't recall what she said other than "WS is safe".

    Cleared my cache. This is happening to me all the time, with more sluggishness and redirects each day. Tried blocking the KBB site. No avail. It is making my computer over heat at this point--- according to the fan and the activity monitor. Websleuths is the only site where this happens. Disabled Flash and cleaned out as much as I can.

    When I clicked "Thanks" on your post, I got redirected here:

    I hope WS is making a lot of money from these, because it sure is annoying.
