Am I the only one? Only saw them on my iPhone (safari) so far. I’ll screenshot the next one

Yeah, I had google adds start interrupting my white noise app at about 3AM last night. Frustrating.

If it's helpful to diagnose, it seems to come up when you first choose a forum after entering the site. I first noticed it this morning on my phone, and then later on my laptop, but only on the first click of a forum link.

Disagree - not just any forum, but rather any initial action on the site, such as looking at alerts, or viewing new posts. I am being presented with an ad on any initial action on the site. Then, none after.

Yeah, “any forum” was just my experience - initial action is more accurate.

I know what’s going on here. Nip is using these “accidental” ads to fund his alt coin investments.

Same, happening on any sort of click with a thread or notification. Maybe 1 out of 10 clicks? Odd.

For what it is worth, I've gotten them on other websites I haven't normally gotten them on. Surprised Ad Blocker isn't taking care of them.

They are coming hot and heavy today. But you can dismiss the ad with the escape button, if you're using a computer.

I'm getting a lot of ads on Safari on the laptop and on my iPhone. It's happening multiple times daily and happens when I click to go into a forum from the home screen. What can be done to make this go away?

I thought OP was talking about normal ads, which I’ve seen for awhile, but I also started getting pop ups on my phone last night and this morning. Only every once in a while.

It's google. I fortunately don't have to go in there as much as I used to but I made some changes to the settings this morning that I hope will work. Those evil pieces of crap constantly change definitions of how things work without giving us the opportunity to opt-in or opt-out. There was some new "intersite popup" crap that I had never seen before.

Please, please everyone use the Brave browser and duckduckgo. Google is a very, very bad entity that is not acting in our best interests. I'll kill their ads once I get a chance to determine an alternative.

Leaving in a bit to the studio :)
iPad, with a bookmark to the index.php page: if I click on any of the newest threads on the right side of the page, I get a pop-up. Started ~3 days ago.

On the same iPad, I also now get big ads between the different headings (that have 3-6 forums each).

I just got an ad for a product that purports to keep my asshole cleaner, with a cartoon graphic depicting a guy itching his asshole through his paints.

This is CLEARLY a Nip conspiracy.

For the record, if this thing operates off some kind of personalized algorithm, then it’s bullshit because I’ve never had such problems!

Anal crabs are nothing to be ashamed of. They make a shampoo that also smells like fresh lavender. I’ll pm the referral link.
