Can confirm that I'm getting redirects for happy.goodluckspace.com. I don't know what ads are causing it, but it's happening a bunch.

Chrome. Windows desktop.

Same for all.

I've gotten like 5 redirects in the past few minutes, most of which were trying to come in and post in this thread!

Getting those goodluckspace redirects so much right now it was almost impossible to even get to this thread.

These redirects are getting bad, I'm almost going to have to avoid Resetera until it's corrected.

Echoing redirect problem and sentiment that avoiding the forum may be the only option. I browse in multitab for each thread and they all end up just being a bunch of redirected tabs and cant view the threads.

I, too, am being redirected constantly to happy.goodluckspace etc etc. sometimes it redirects the tab, sometimes it opens in a new tab.
Chrome. Windows 10. I'm in Canada, if it's geofenced?

I've reached out to the ad agency again about this. Thanks for the reports. It's like whack-a-mole at this time of year.

Ad agency has updated me that it appears to be an outbreak across multiple providers, making it particularly difficult to eliminate all of the problems as they pop up. They're doing their best. Sorry for the inconvenience.
