I may stop visiting this site

Postby Gleebergloben123 » July 15th, 2017, 12:05 am

I've been coming here for over 15 years. But recently, when I click on ANY forum, more than half the time I'm redirected to a scam site:

Code: Select all

http://brickages.com/show.php?c=walmart&p=0e0799491bc112a7e46aadfaa6a9cc90&subid=Y16730680001500091149952724&t=1500091149


I've tried clearing my history and website data, but it keeps happening. I hate to say this but if it keeps up I'll stop coming here. It only happens at this site. And it pains me because this site is my release, where I can escape from it all.

Anyone else having this problem?

Hey, I approved the post but edited it so the hyperlink was in code in case there might be an issue with it. Sorry you're having this issue. I check the site several times a day and haven't noticed any issues. Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks Rev, and thank you for the editing. After I posted this, I was redirected to the scam site just coming to this site. It started a few weeks ago and has only gotten worse. And it's only this website. Like I said, this site is my sanctuary, so I'm hoping this can be resolved.

Never once had this happen to me. Been active for 2 and lurking for at least 7 years now.

Thank you guys for the heads up. I'm not an IT expert but we think it might have to do with a particular ad that is on the site. If you've been coming across these issues we appreciate you guys sticking with us.

I'll make sure we follow up and post something here once we get a resolution. We have a great community here and we want to make sure everyone is taken care of.

Definitely looks like a malicious ad.

Guys,
I just removed all ads from the forums. You may need to do a reload/refresh page.
