It seems the only manner to interact with this site now is via desktop using adblocker. I continue receiving pop-ups whenever on mobile/tablet.

I find it appalling that this issue has been left to continue for months by the owners of the site. Its great Jeff chimes in with comments, however, frankly I've hoping for concrete results, not just simply promises of action.

Last week I was on my phone here on Anet looking at photos and my phone instantly flashed that my phone had a virus on it. This has happened a few times in the last month I will try and get a screenshot of it next time it happens. I am sure it was a spam advert as well.

10-4, thanks.

TapaTalk should hopefully go live this week. We ran into some issues with the rollout last week.

Malwarebytes on my computer blocking pages preview.ibb.co and image.ibb.co (port varies) when I visit Detroit Air Service Discussion Part 5, particularly pages 22 and 23.

Is it only happening in that section?

Might be a bad image or ad.

It has to be one of those images or links, I just tested with no issues via PC on Chrome.

Anybody else having this issue?

Have you all tried an ad blocker? I know they're now allowed on iOS, although I'm an Android user so I'm not familiar with exactly what one needs to do to install one on iOS.
