Spam issues?

I don't know if I'm the only one getting these, but I tend to get a variety of different ones.  Sometimes the page will randomly redirect to spam page; other times, it asks if I want to navigate away from this page; if I say "Cancel," it goes to a spam page (this even occurs going from an index to a topic or closing down the tab that includes this forum).

Am I the only one? Is it an issue with my computer because of the web browser, pop-up blockers or what? Or is it another issue Forumer seriously needs to iron out?

I have never had this happen. It actually sounds like adware to me... Perhaps you should run a scan?

Well I've been using AVG Free Edition and it automatically scans, so I haven't been getting any lately.

I don't have these problems, probably your laptop.
Favourite Team: Red Jaguars
Favourite Episode: The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great, tied with the Mussel Shell Armor of Apanuugpak and the Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain
Favourite Season: Season 3

When artists like LMFAO, Ke$ha, Taylor Swift, Carly Rae Jespen and Justin Bieber and songs like "Party Rock Anthem", "Call Me Maybe", "Thrift Shop" and others are succeeding in today's music industry and about 99% of the world is buying their shit and any argument you make is followed by nonsense from these people, you would wish the world had ended on 21st December 2012.

Bad news guys - it happened to me. A page of the five recurring ads I've been seeing today appeared when I manually typed in "phantomsden.6.forumer.com" into my URL box. I have no idea what it's about though, but I know that the URL still said "phantomsden.6.forumer.com" when the ad page came up.

OMFG I had this problem too, literally just now. And it happened to me last night. This is really getting out of hand. First the avatars, now the spam pages. I really hate forumer. :roll:

I can barely view this thread without getting redirected.

That's just inexcusable.

If you ask me, my honest opinion is that they are not helping us because we are a FREE forum. They only help the ones who are paying them the big bucks to post.

They had better fix this or else... *Puts on temple guard mask and headdress*

As mean and unfair as that sounds, I have to agree.  :roll:
