    the last time this got this bad people suggested using firefox with an adblocker but all my shit is saved in chrome. its ridiculous we even have to do that just because sherdog absolutely refuses to do anything about this. its not even popups anymore, its straight up browser hijacks.

    Getting the same "walmart" card redirect with my tablet.

    They need to clean up this sight.

    I can understand it taking a day or two to hunt it down but this has been going on for a while now.

    And I don't mind the adds that appear on the site and will even click them now and then to help support the site but the redirect is making it impossible to stay on the site and enjoy it.

    Which is going to hurt the site and the real advertising.

    Just got the same popup/browser hijack. Porn sites of questionable shadiness are better about this crap than sherdog. Is it users posting hijack links in their posts that causes it? Is it a shady advertisement plugin used by sherdog? Sherdog is one of the only websites I visit that this constantly happens.

    I was about to say that shit is going full steam ahead for me. Using this site is so good damn annoying. I love trying to feed my baby a bottle while reading sherdog and "WARNING WARNING YOUR ANDROID IS INFECTED!!!!"

    I get these every so often. It's just javascript that is embedded in the ad. The site most likely uses a third-party advertising company that doesn't perform any basic sanity checks on the ads. I wish Google would allow plugins for Android Chrome, so we can use ad-block without rooting the phone.

    I get a much better redirect and created a thread about it here that has no been responded to.

    It sends me to a "Microsoft" site that claims my computer is hacked. Click link to prevent all your files from being deleted!!!!

    No answer despite providing a screenshot. That's a big issue. Those redirects have nothing to do with advertising popups.

    A screenshot by itself is useless.
    Each report should have it's own thread (i.e. don't post in each others reports)
    These ads aren't that difficult to clean up when you provide the data
    If you have a bad ad to report start a new thread with as much of the requested data as possible. All of it is important.
