    Prattvile, AL-Go Lions!
    Why are they popping up in the middle of a thread?
    Thanks

    It’s a new ad unit we are testing to replace one that was removed elsewhere.

    VIP subscribers do not see it.

    Is this really intentional? These ads are redirecting me completely away from the forums with no way to navigate away (have to close the tab completely). All of these seem to be from the same domain (see attachment).

    I mean, inline ads are one thing but this is extremely intrusive.

    Hi Ray, the ads from domain "ad.t78.net" are still hijacking the browser and redirecting users while browsing the forums. Can you please look into it? Thanks.

    ...and another domain hijacking the page. I don't use ad blockers on this site out of respect but honestly I have no idea how I can keep visiting unless I use one.

    Yes. This is extremely annoying. Ads are one thing but these are page redirects that happen without having to click on anything

    These popup hijacking ads are going to make me turn popup block back up for this sight. It has gone from irritating to annoying.

    Been getting these as well. Very annoying. Causing the site to lose clicks is not good for Ray or the GC community.

    Out of respect for Ray and to help support the sight I have disabled my ad blocker for this sight. The next time I get redirected to a bogus sweepstakes sight I am turning it back on.

    Yeah, happens to me repeatedly as well. Not worth viewing the site on my phone when it starts happening.
