Also, what do you consider to be "spam"?


Because if it's the "Fire Mike Anderson" threads, then yes, I'm getting it too...


Otherwise, no, I'm not getting any.

I just came from Jump Ball. I didn't have a problem. No pop up ads.

I get those on my phone every once in a while. Can't remember if they come from this site when it happens though. It's very aggravating because they take you through some sort of (transfer) portal and you can't get out of it... Just have to close the page out and renavigate back on a new page.

Got an ad offering me 25% off a 1 year Hogville subscription. Needless to say I got out my credit card and signed up.  But I haven't seen any illegitimate ads.

I saw one for a massage parlor in Florida. When I clicked the link it just went to the Patriots home page.

Having the same problem on most boards. Definitely JB and MMQB.

Galaxy S9+ using Chrome. It redirects to one of those "you won!" pages and ignores the back button.

Only happening on HV so I don't think it's my device

I am getting the same thing every time I am on hogville. Just got a new one asking to allow hogville to send notifications and had to close the page. The one above is what I usually get. I only get it on hogville and get it in all forums.
