When I am reading a thread, or typing. something butts in and a sound track come on.
In addition, the page starts scrolling down. If I scroll it back and start reading again it just scrolls back down Again.
Sometimes it is impossible to read a thread and I have to leave the site Entirely to get rid of it. I do not know what causes this but I suspect it is some type of virus. Sometimes when I am typing, the curser turns into a a colored whoring thing and nothing works.
I hope you can cure this soon.

The ad at the bottom of the screen, pulling the page down and playing sound automatically, happened to me for the first time today. The other ads are too plentiful, but not as annoying as these new ones.

Whoever owns and runs this website will hopefully figure out that if they are too crazy about selling ad space and not good enough to patrons, that site views and usage will go down, in the end costing them more. Don't be like Photobucket.

Running an ad blocker should stop this - also clear your cookies and temp files, history (the lot) and try again - a malware scan might also be appropriate

If you can provide some more detail I can "report" it - but for that I need to know exactly what operating system you're using, and the exact nature of the offending ad itself - but try the above first - in most cases this can cure it

Failing that - your computer is broken, and I will take it off your hands for 50p :p

It happened a couple of time on another site but the moderators got rid of it.
Any cross referencing from that site would also be useful - pm me if any of the information is "sensitive"

I've seen this sort of issue reportedly crop up on some of my other sites. What's interesting is that I've never experienced any of it myself, either in Chrome on a Win10 PC, my laptop, OR my Android devices! While it's known that occasional Google placed ads can cause issues, I have to believe that there's something in the individual reporting user's computer that makes it susceptible to these hijacks.

That said, we've had success eliminating those "rogue ads", IF the member can either screenshot the hijack; or provide the URL for the hijacking source.

I agree... Makes it almost impossible to type, read.... Why should we have to switch browsers or modify anything! I have no trouble with ANY other websites..
It's like the management of this website is a bunch of amateurs or they want us to leave.

Say, where can I get one of those "colored whoring things"?
Two would be even better!

That was colored whirling things before the auto correct got it.
I am not sure what browser I am using. I don't know what a browser is. I am not computer literate.
I can say that this computer has NEVER been to a porn site so it couldn't be any electronic social disease from there.
