    Thanks Costello! When I get some time later tonight I'll look through my browser history and try to find some of the pop up ad links.

    If the ads are utterly invasive and affect the experience of said site, that's a problem.

    Yeah but like op did, he made a comment about it to have something done instead of just use ad blocker. Even worst he could have just left, I'm glad he it was handled this way instead. :)

    Thought it was just me so i run icleaner everyone once in a while but I still get random gibberish links like hgsj58djska85gh8dfo02fn9u9hjf9.xyz that brings me to pages that abuse the 9.3< bug (same vuln used to jailbreak using pangu) on IOS which infects you if you close whatever pop tab comes up and you lock your device @Costello

    I use an ad blocker because the majority of sites have stupid pop up ads I hate, but some sites I actually want to support (like this one) end up whitelisted.

    Well, to be fair that was the original name :)

    That's what I consider a defect of most adblockers - it's in practice either all or nothing, at least for a specific domain (for example, I would never want video ads of any kind but don't mind the square box to the right of the video on youtube, on other websites like this one I don't mind ads but want to kill all floating cookie shit or facebook buttons), luckily uMatrix and uBlock in advanced mode are those exceptions - as annoying as they are to set up well!

    Only $3000? I am a billionaire now thanks to all the multi million dollar competitions I won by e-mail. Even though I don't remember ever entering them... :P
