Thread: Pop up ads

    I have never seen a pop up ad on this site.
    If you are offended by what is said, ask yourself, is it because it was true?

    It's not RTF, it's a virus that attaches to the phone or iPad,
    Google it. I just need to get my kid to help me get rid of it

    If that is the case why does it only happen with RTF? I have reviewed the procedure for blocking pop up ads and followed the protocol but the problem still exists.

    On the recommendation of Ted S. I installed an ad blocker “VPN” and I never get them anymore.

    In addition to the constant pop-ups, my I-Phone also freezes on RTF where I can’t open threads. Does not happen anywhere but RTF. Sloppy admin I imagine.

    I was getting the “congratulations you’ve won” pop ups on my iPhone periodically sometimes almost every time I’d try to open the site. Yesterday i installed the latest iPhone update. 12.2.2 I think it was. The pop ups have not happened since then. But it’s only been a day.

    This is iPhone model is one I’ve had about 6 months. It frequently does as Carol wrote. It won’t open posts and the screen is frozen. I’ll have to refresh or reopen the site numerous times before it works. This site is the only application or site where it happens. This did not happen that I can remember on my prior iPhone model.

    I am glad to know it’s not just me or something I’m doing wrong.

    I never got those google pop ups before and the last time I used my iphone was at the vet office waiting and it was literally within 2 seconds of opening multiple times. For telemarketers on my land line, the "google" ones are multiple times a day using your same exchange, fake names, fake numbers. pay them to manage "your account" where they even place fake reviews for you and fake ads for goldendoodles for me. Is this even Google or just scams to get your info, probably foreign, because they also come through V numbers and nothing gets rid of them.

    I recently updated to 12.2, each time I open RTF I get a pop up within 10-15 seconds. I installed Ad-Block and enabled it on the IPhone and it blocked RTF, blank screen when I open RTF.
