Is anyone else getting spam web page redirects while browsing a thread?

I literally had one while I was making this thread!

It always takes me to a "Congratulations" page.

Is this happening to anyone else? It's beyond irritating.

Yeah, several people (including myself) have been reporting these in the ad reporting thread.

I have before on this site. I usually delete my cookies or history and that helps. I think I went into my browser menu thru the applications setting and cleared the cache too

Anyone also get annoyed that on mobile, when pressing on the left-menu when there's a twitter/youtube/ad underneath it, causes those to open instead of actually navigating to the proper menu page?

Bad ads are often a problem at this time of year and our ad network is working as hard as they can to stamp them out as they emerge. Our administration is definitely aware of the issue. If you notice any more malicious / redirect ads, please mention them in this thread, as it's easiest for us to have it all in one place:
