    Every now and again when I click on a thread, it navigates me away from the site to a spam competition winner page. loompaspalace.com or something like that. It's only been doing it for the last 3 or 4 days so wondered if anyone else had reported the same issues?

    Any ideas gents?

    I have an S9 nine galaxy and not had an issue , the general rule of thumb is if is only you that this happens with it must be your device

    If you are accessing the site thru a bookmark I would remove the bookmark then try accessing again

    A few sites have been having it and it seems to be an ad. Every so often a rouge ad will get through Googles checks and there seems to be one. The problem with ads is they can be targeted fairly specifically and I'm not able to recreate it to identify which ad it is (and neither have the admins of the other sites who have reported it) otherwise I could block it and the url you reported isn't the URL the ad links to so I can't find it that way.

    It has been reported to google by others and I have as well so hopefully they can sort it
