    May be because I am on opera and run content blockers, no script  I don't see anything.

    I am using Opera and am not getting malicious scripts however the ads I am seeing lately are beyond questionable.

    you guys forget ads are aimed for you based on your searches, what you did/saw and what the site permit.

    so if you are getting adds with amlware I would first do a whole clean up on cookies and historic, clean it all, then put adblock up and be happy,

    I'm sorry but that's nonsense.
    I had my share of flower ads here because I had been looking for seeds on amazon and that is fine.

    But I am not a citizen of the US and Europeans don't usually sue companies because they bought their baseball bats.
    Given that this is just bait to lure a greedy sucker into clicking the malware link.

    The shady network is at fault, not the users here and it's this site's job to remove such dubious clients.

    Um well I can see the ad's pictures on this site, however no site will load any type of click-able ad's or overlays for me thus it's easier to avoid malicious ad's and stuff.

    - Esset Antivirus
    - Https Everywhere
    - Ublock Origin
    - Privacy Badger
    - Google Chrome

    Will make everything a lot secure.

    https://www.eff.org/privacybadger

    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ublock-origin/cjpalhdlnbpafiamejdnhcphjbkeiagm?hl=en

    This also helps prevent sites, other sites from spying on you / trackers, as well, though it blocks legitimate transactions from certain game companies such as Xsolla API, so you will have to allow these through privacy badger manually though it's way worthhit because it makes things more secure for thhe general user.

    Though if you wan't to become totally anonymous, you can also change your DNS to http://1.1.1.1/ , use http://duck.com/ , and use Firefox + multi-layered VPN /Free Wifi depending on what your goal is.

    This also helps prevent you from getting pwned.

    This site has tons and tons of trackers, also non-ads included. get ghostery and other programs to remove it, and use a vpn.

    I just saw it pop up today through uBlock Origin - takes several seconds before the ad will load in, but if you leave a forum page up it does pop up. Haven't figured out how to block it yet... but guess I can always just stop coming to the forums.

    That is what happens when forums abuse their visitors. after all.

    Yeah today it's advertisements for Big Dick tee shirts.

    Thanks.

    I was able to block all the ads here, but it seems they found a new ad source that circumvents most blockers because they are desperate for us to see the ads. I guess I should switch to text only format so I never have to see them.

    Now when I open articles here all I see are the sites ads, no article.

    Well you must not have an Ad blocker then? :|
    If you did you would see how many ads and trackers are blocked.

    Turn on AdBlock or Ghostery, log out then see if you can log in. They literally won't allow you to log into this site unless you turn ad blocks off.  You literally can not read any articles on this site unless you turn adblock off. Pretty lame if you ask me. Even Twitter is less annoying with ads.

    Twitter doesn't have 80+ ad servers running in code.  :D

    Those malicious ads that were gone for a while seem to be back today.  With the way that the ad claims focus, I really think that it's trying to be a keylogger.

    I thought maybe was flash cookies but is not.

    Now i am not going to pretend i fully understand this because i am never in this business side of things so have never in my life used cookies or done business with.

    However this is what i get for this site....It looks like an overall  picture of in/out,who this site is directly using and who is somehow linked back here.The few orange are the cookies.

    I am not going to spend the time to try and figure out which one MIGHT be causing problems and that is if ANY actually are,that is up to this sites networking manager and business/owner to figure out and that is IF they care.

    Honestly to me and you KNOW i would say otherwise,nothing looks malicious there.So what could be the problem,who knows,i don't have any problems on my end right now so i can't begin to figure it out but then again sometimes i have blocker on sometimes i don't so who knows.
