    There are some video ads popping up at the bottom of the screen. generally no big deal, but when I am reading a thread and the ad starts up my Chrome browser moves to the bottom of the page. I move back, another ad starts and the process repeats.

    Getting one today that is taking me to a 'you win a thousand dollar amazon gift card' page that you can't leave.

    I get that Amazon torrent redirect on my phone and it forces me to close the window completely. No other way around it

    Yeah Clutchfans has major redirect problems on Android. I suspect that it does on Desktop too, but it's battling ad blocker, because my browser will sometimes slow to a crawl (so much so that I type and wait 5-10 seconds for my characters to appear).

    Here's the initial one that comes up 75% of the time:

    If you try to "back" from this one, it takes you to this one (and back and forth):

    And I got this one once, as a bonus:

    I've gotten this **** every time I've logged in this week. Even got it replying to this thread. I do not get these spam attacks on any site except this one.

    By the time you read this, I will have been redirected. I'm trying alternate browsers from chrome to see if that helps.

    This is really killing me, does it like every 2-5 minutes, won't let me stroll away for like 5 seconds either... Nothing more annoying then writing a post and getting the page scrolled all the way up multiple times.

    Also, on my phone, I get really bad website redirection adds when on cluthfans, I get directed to new websites in the middle of nowhere that are super bad pop ups that won't let me x out of them.

    I've tried to read the GARM for 3 minutes. I got 7 redirects. This is ridiculous. @Clutch you're aware of this right?

    Yeah, this is by far the worst I've seen it, and it's only this site doing it.... Almost unusable

    It won't stop directing my page to the bottom or top of the screen for the add videos, It's literally doing it over and over and over, every 30 seconds in all threads. Do I have to watch the full 30 second add for it to stop scrolling my page? It's making the website un-usable for me as well. I got redirected to the bottom adds 4 times while making this short post.

    I've been getting a lot of Website blocked popups when I go on Clutchfans at work... seems odd, could it be ad/redirect related?
