I've been getting bad ads that redirect me to a fake firefox update page which tries to begin downloading. This is the mo of malware. I'd report the ads, but because it redirects away from the page, I don't know which ads are doing it.

    Been trying to go through the archive. Have reported the bariatric surgery video ad about 30 times. It prevents the page from scrolling, and keeps the page locked onto the video until finished.

    Tremendous pain.

    About a day ago, right as the update went live, this ad and a couple of others kept redirecting me from both the forum and comic.

    I was able to spend about 3-5 seconds on the comic/forum pages and then the ads hijacked my browser page with loud annoying audio and assertions that my browser was damaged by viruses.

    It was only happening on Erfworld pages.

    Hi, I signed up here just to post about the ads (although I hope to do some delving here now that I found out the forums exist) I keep getting slammed with redirects of "your system has been compromised" and "there was a dangerous try to get an access to your personal logins" on both my phone and my laptop. This keeps happening when reading the archives, I hope those ads are pulled pronto.

    For figuring out what providers are responsible for the bad ads it helps the team to know the time and general geo-location of the users when they occur.

    So I've signed up to be a tool so I can't tell if the ads are still behaving badly or not. Funny enough, it's not the removing ads capability of becoming a tool that caused me to sign up. If anything, it made me reluctant to do so, partly because I hate feeling like I'm being strongarmed into doing something, but mostly because I don't want to recommend this site to my friends until the ads are fixed.

    However, since I did some poking around I saw the plan to remove advertising from the site if the mining thing takes off, which it looks like it is. I would have joined in on that, but my poor laptop is working with only half its ram as it is, so I doubt the crippled thing could manage to mine at all. So I contributed how I could, by registering as a tool, in hopes that will help yank those ads out and burn them on a giant pyre.
