    I've been reporting them here:
    https://gbatemp.net/dynamic/bad-ad-report-form.100/

    Just be warned that ads still appear on that page. I got redirected in the middle of reporting the redirect ads lol.

    You know, reading this thread makes me quite worried.
    Redirects to malicious sites is simply not acceptable.
    I'm glad I'm a patron I guess, considering I get a fully AD free experience.

    this page is not to be used anymore, that is from our old ad network.

    I have reported all the new complaints to our ad network, and will continue to do so until the situation is resolved.
    Please post any links or screenshots so I can send it to them.

    The Adblocker stopped the crashing, reloading and me having to login every time. It was the ads causing the problem even after I disabled video ads. I haven’t had a crash in a while.

    This redirect happened again so the problem is still not resolved.

    Oops, sorry! I thought it was the same network. Anyway, I was viewing this thread and got a redirect ad. It takes me to this walmart-2k.club site.

    I covered up the URL while taking a screenshot, but again it starts with walmart-21k.club

    Right after posting, I got this fake survey redirect:

    I havent received a single complaint in the past 3 days.
    3 days ago, the ad network said they have found the bad ad source and prevented it from serving on our site.
    So, either it's a happy coincidence, or they have actually fixed the problem? let's hope it is the latter.
    Anyone got anything to report?

    I'm afraid the thread would get shat on for not being gaming-related.
    Would not be the first time.

    Thanks for the report. That's a bit annoying :(

    The autoplay video on the right side sucks big time, at least it doesn't autoscroll as well, but still way too distracting.
