    Guys,

    I understand the argument about how some on this site get pop-ups and redirects vs other sites that don't, but here's some news from today showing that it really is happening elsewhere...

    https://www.komando.com/happening-n...rce=notd&utm_content=2018-01-23-article-title

    A quote from the linked article above...

    There is a link at the end of the article above for a program download for Chrome browser users, although supposedly it might work on other browsers also.

    What we really need, just like with street thugs, et al, is to have some of these hackers caught and severely dealt with such that it becomes undesirable to do it... but don't hold your breath for that to happen.

    If any of you surf Fox News on your iPhone without ad blocking software, you get the same popups. And Fox isn’t the only one, just one example.

    As this has gone on, I have posted articles like Woodie's, such as NBC and TMZ.

    And, as I explained then, they have dedicated IT people, who's job it is to search for and remove this kind of stuff. We have a guy 'on call', which makes it a little tougher. IT work doesn't come cheap.

    Will this ad pop up / redirect solution work for iphones? I have a terrible time with this whether safari or chrome is used.

    Thanks

    People who go with the ad-free option seem to have no more problems. YMMV
