    If you can do a screen capture the next time it pops up, that would be a huge help.

    Only way I stop it happening is to turn off Javascript. After a day or two, I turn it back on.

    I immediately turn it off when it happens.

    Something similar started happening again. Noticed it the past few days...

    I get pop-ups that say "congrats you've won $1000" or whatever... Pain in the ass because I can't just click out of it. I have to close out the app, open back up, and quickly hit my tabs to close out the GoTitans page before it pops up again.

    I'm on Google Chrome via my iPhone if that means anything.

    I got it last night on my iPad. Totally overtook the site and opened another page.

    It's not happened on my laptop (yet) so it might be a mobile ad. I'm tracking it down.

    Been browsing a bit just now with my iPad, no issues.

    I've been good this week. Anyone else?

    I've only had it once since I posted... but it's been a few days.

    I'm getting a redirect currently.

    I'll screenshot it when it happens again.

    @TitanJeff is my Shoutbox ban over yet? It's really lonely over on Twitter.

    I've been getting the same thing non-stop the past few days. Really annoying.

    It's a $1000 Walmart gift card pop up that hijacks me.

    Got it tonight on my phone. I am chasing it down. I hate it and would shut down all the ads if I could swing the monthly server fees.
