    We have been having problems with annoying rogue ads that we do not intend to run. Pop ups and ads that automatically play audio. Please help us out by reporting them in this thread so we can track them down and nuke them.

    In some cases its a security issue. Recently some of you may have seen Candy Crush pop ups on your iphone- this was finally traced back to a hacker that injected code onto the site. We don't want this junk on the site and need to stay on top of these security issues.

    Please report with this info:
    Device / Browser
    Country
    What the ad is for
    URL of the ad/popup
    Screenshots, if possible.

    I've had some weird problems with adblock this week (not just on RM) I uninstalled it then re-added it - sorted.

    Nothing has been done on here to interfere with adblock - mine is working fine (on chrome too)

    thanks MissB - screenshot it & I'll get tech to peep. (also get AdBlock - just google "AdBlock for Firefox" - works a dream, no hassle at all)

    There's an anti-adblock movement because ads are what pay for our free content. I still use it, but may soon stop because I'd rather watch an ad than pay for content. Your adblock is probably working fine, but the uploaders are finding ways around it. Power to them, but I'm on the opposing end.

    hhc is always redirecting me to random "you've won" websites.

    it doesn't happen in any other forum except for hhc.

    there's a bloke who posts there with an image for a sig, might have something to do with it.

    Glad to read this - the link at the bottom of the forum for terms and rules states explicitly that adblocking is forbidden:

    http://www.crowdgather.com/legal/

    "19. Use “ad blocking” software or similar built-in web browser options designed to hide, block or prevent the proper display of online advertising (if any) while using the Sites;"
