Third party ad networks are malware delivery systems. You know this. By adding them to your site you are deliberately exposing people to malware.

You have mods pre-approve every post on this forum, but you allow third parties to serve up whatever in the hopes of making ad impression revenue.

The internet is a malware delivery system.

In theory, Google (still using their ads, right?) is supposed to weed out the bad players in their ad program. They don't always do a good job, but I'd imagine they're better than Looksmart or Entireweb.

Thanks for letting me know Gleeber!
Were you using the mobile version of the site (with the buttons) or the full version (with the drop-down menus)?

Anybody else experiencing this?

I don't know if the ipad uses the mobile site or full site!
Please let me know.

If it's the mobile edition it will say so on top.

On my computer, I'm having no issues with the full site, if that's any help. Adblock is disabled here.

I'm going on the assumption you all were using the mobile site.
I'm in the process of removing ALL the ads from the mobile site.
Hopefully this will resolve the problem!

Keep in mind it might be a while for the old pages to refresh, because they tend to get cached.
I don't know how the ipad or iphone handles caching.

Keep me posted!

I’ve never had this problem and have used the mobile version exclusively for years.

I toggle between the desktop and mobile site, and have not experienced any issues either.
