    Beginning to wonder if these things are "inside jobs" by the providers... why it's so difficult to track down, unless you provide the coding...

    C-O-N... SPIRACY!

    I'm still getting them on my phone but not as bad as a few days ago. Still working with the networks to trace the ad.

    For now, if this is happening to you, just turn on ad blocking. I'll let everyone know when the coast is clear.

    It's totally out of control.

    I'm getting them as well though not as often as last week. I also have gotten them at a few other websites.

    The networks have been notified. They say they are tracking it down.

    If you can turn off ads or block them, do it. I have no other solutions right now.

    My Macafee is catching it before I get that screen but it's annoying. Now these video ads are causing my computer to freeze up. I have to leave and come back. Then wait a while when I change threads. Right now it's typing like it's crippled. I think it's a plot to get $2.
