We looked into this extensively and unfortunately there is no perfect solution. If we implement a fixed-size box, it ends up cutting off the "Report Ad" link under the ads. We tried that solution for a while on the old design and a lot of people (quite understandably) complained about the inability to report individual ads.Can the site do something about ad loading?
Nothing more annoying than the screen suddenly shift as you click something.
It is particularly bad on mobile: ads loading introduces lag into the text processor; at times kicks me out of the text box; and when it does kick me out of the text box often expands such that when trying to get back in I click the ad instead. Ads make replying on mobile a nightmare.
I've had this problem since ads launched.
More of this, I’m afraid. Now the url is this one:The site is completely unusable on ios safari today due to exactly the same issue I had last friday: Constant redirects (Every 10 seconds or so) to us.defensed870wz.online/cor_xs
It seems to be some garbage scamming site pretending to be Correos (The spanish postal service).
And another one:
Based on the reports we've recieved so far here and in emails, it appears that this is an issue affecting specifically iOS users in your country. I've reached out to our partners about this.And another one:
Is it helpful in any way to keep reporting these here, or should I just give up on visiting the site from iOS for a while?
It doesn’t seem like they’ll ever run out of random urls to host their redirecting ads and scam.
This ad is definitely broken. Every time it comes up, the page keeps scrolling up and down in flashes in Chrome, making the site unusable. I have to F5 until another ad comes up. Can't even report it, because the link to report this ad is broken when you click it.Latest google chrome, windows 10 desktop, Belgium
Since yesterday I'm getting redirected to some sketchy sites on Era. Yesterday it was one of these fake you won an iphone things, today it's a site that doesn't load. Incredibly annoying and very persistent. It happens on almost any page and causes my browser to slow down as chrome tries to block the redirects.
I thought it was on me and did virus scans and browser resets and all that. But I see now that other people have been experiencing redirects too lately. :/
edit: I believe I've identified this ad as the malicious one, when it's present I get the redirects, on pages with other ads it doesn't happen
I don't know if that helps, but I've reported the ad and explained that I believe it's causing the redirects, I hope that does the trick
Been happening all day to me. I've had to start typing everything in Notepad++ because when it starts up it messes with your cursor focus. Please make it stop... somebody.This ad is definitely broken. Every time it comes up, the page keeps scrolling up and down in flashes in Chrome, making the site unusable.
