    Default Spam Pop-ups

    Hello Mods,

    Browsing tonight on iPhone and there is a pop-up window continually opening and making the forum basically unusable. Here is a screen capture of what is appearing. In Canada. Telus provider. Using Safari. I hope this help you weed out the junk.

    I get it too through Shaw but only on my iPhone. Pretty well blocks access to all Dobber sites.

    Been a long-standing problem for me. Only workaround I found is just asking the site to serve the desktop version. Seems to be only on the mobile version of the forums. Love them hackers!

    Sorry for this. Ridiculous crap.
    Funny enough, the first to report this was...me to myself. I'm at a DRAFT last night and went to research a player on my favorite tool - Frozen Tools. Could not get in. After two seconds was booted out on my iPhone. Couldn't work around it no matter what trick I tried (going in via Google, or backing up to the page and quickly clicking a link I want, etc.). After a few minutes I had to go to another site. And later, looking up another player on DobberProspects - same thing! I get the frustration.
    Only happened to me in London/Stratford area. Back in Toronto it doesn't happen. So just a geo-location issue and I think just on iPhones

    I get it on Android using Chrome on the Sunshine Coast. Although to be honest it's been a bit, since I use the desktop site.

    Whenever we get an occasional issue like this one, fire a screenshot to me direct or to admin via contact. It's not a prolific issue. But Saturday night/Sunday morning - that was a relentless, widespread issue that made it impossible for anyone in what looks like London, Calgary, Edmonton and Halifax to access DobberProspects or Frozen Tools (and I think the forum) at all. That is the issue that has myself and the programmer stop everything immediately and jump on it.

    This comes and goes. We resolved this issue, and then three weeks later, a similar issue returned. We banned one of our ad networks and that seemed to solve it. Now we have the issue back, worse than ever, and we think it is due to two networks - only their mobile ads. We have disabled them for FT and DP.
    Trying to contact these networks but they are kinda full of shit when they respond.

    We do keep resolving the issues. But it's putting fingers in the holes in the dam. They keep returning. But I've had enough.

    As for contact. On DobberHockey at the bottom 'Contact Us' all spam ad reports get forwarded to me.
    Best help:
    1. page/website you are on
    2. screenshot of redirect
    3. device (right now, issue is only iPhone)
    4. location (Sunday, locations London, Alberta, and Ottawa mostly affected)

    Thank you!
