    The redirects have gotten bad enough now that the site is unusable for me. This was an issue a couple months ago but apparently the admins fixed it. But in the past week it has become an issue again. Also I now have an ad bar in the middle of the page. Ad bars at the top and bottom of the page I can handle, but constant redirects and an ad bar in the middle of the page are deal breakers for me.

    Might it also be the browser you are using to view the site? I am viewing this on my PC using Firefox and I've got no pop-ups, etc.

    Now just jumped on MS Explorer and nothing of the nature you describe.

    What kind of device are you using (presumably mobile). droid/iOS?

    I use iOS exclusively on here.
    It's pretty often that it redirects to another page telling me that I have won a $1000 Walmart gift card. It's kinda annoying.

    Google "prevent redirects in Safari" or some combination thereof. You may need a software upgrade. Also, it might not be "just" this site, despite the fact that's where you're most often experiencing it.

    FWIW, It doesn't happen on my droid (Chrome) device. But my software has recently been updated.
