    I kid you not, this has happened a ton in maybe the past 20 minutes. Can anything be done?

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    EDIT: I accidentally'd some letters. Could a mod fix that please?

    I'm just getting ads for colleges and cars right now, so I can't complain.

    Well, on my iPad I get redirected to Porn Sites once a day when visitting GBAtemp since the ads came back. That's pretty annoying, because they arent even popups, but they replace the site completely.

    Too bad there is no adblock for the iPad.

    next time please tell me the URL of the porn site you get redirected to.
    this isn't a joke, I need the name of the advertising site so that I can tell our ad company to stop using it.
    but I'm not even sure that it will work...

    You need to PM him the address and not post it on the forums.

    Yes, that would have been the right action.
    Wasn't really thinking when posting this, because I just woke up then, saw that I got redirected and wanted to post this as fast as possible, before I forget again.

    So Costello or who else needs to know got the URL now, right? I don't have it in my clipboard anymore.

    Next time ist happens I'll write a pm ;)

    No harm done, don't worry about it.
    We can still access the post, so you shouldn't have to PM it to anybody.
    Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

    It's your browser being overprotective and cutting you off from GBAtemp because of the ads used on it.

    Opposed to just, you know, cutting off the known-bad ads. I'm sure there's a technical security reason for it though.

    I never get the ads on my mobile. Although mine is very old. One of the forst android phones. I get a warning from my phone's browser: There's something wrong with the security of this site blah blah...~clicks ignore~ It doesn't even block the site, the site is already up when the little warning window comes up so it's not any bother, just clicking a button. Maybe it's a good thing that my internet access is spotty. lol

    I keep getting a popup from my adblocker that says it is blocking a dangerous level ad from popping up pretty much every time i refresh the page. Should i pm the ad site to a mod?

    you can PM the site to me, yes.

    I have emailed the advertising platform (matomy media) to tell them that if they don't stop that kind of ads right now I will stop working with them and go for another platform. This is getting beyond ridiculous!

    Yeah, the innapropriate ads make it hard for me to use the temp at work or school :) I already said I'd be happy to donate plenty of money, so if you do a donation drive lemme know :D
