Intrusive ads on mobile

Last night I tried posting and every time I was redirected to some spammy ad that generated dialogs on my phone and a loud piercing noise.

Anyone else getting this?

Yes. I quit visiting this site on mobile because of the horribly annoying ads.

You might be able to use an adblocker add on/app There are several.

Basically it blocks adds on the web, youtube etc. I use it on laptop but it works on some phones. Mine has blocked 400,000 adds in last year. Why should anyone be confronted with so much unwanted advertising while simply browsing the net?

Yes. It's horrible. I have complained a lot for a long time, but I keep getting redirected. Mine start before I log in. I'm not posting nearly as much as I used to.

Do you guys use the Tapatalk app or through a web app?

I don't get anything like that through Tapatalk, it's designed to be used with forums running vBulletin
