    Never had ads pop up on the forum before but just now after opening any thread after the first post THERE’S A ******* BIGASS HUNK OF THIS STUFF.

    Can I turn this off?

    They started a while ago on TGP and TDPRI, I'm surprised it's taken so long for them to show up here.

    I think something got past the protection and wormed its way into the forum software.

    Started coupla weeks ago for me. Quite annoying.

    Setting my script blocker to reject content from primary.org took care of it in my case.

    Right click and block element works with most adblockers.

    I’ve been getting spam redirects here and on TDPRI… and only on these two sites. It’s a mess.

    Most of the mobile browsers don't get the ad blockers like pc-based browsers do. At least not on Android. I don't ever use Apple products so I have no idea about that.

    Not a clue about Apple stuff, look in the Firefox application menu for the add-on manager and search there.

    See if they have the Brave Browser on iPad. Im using it on Android and it blocks most/all ads, including the one in this thread. Firefox also, has a specific secure browser you can use. I don't recall the name at the moment, though.

    Edit: it's called Firefox Focus.

    Edit #2: neither of those are blocking the ad but they're blocking everything else. Weird.
