Default Forum and Spam. So much - IPhone is useless

Spam and corvette forum. So much now that I cant even use my I phone anymore. It immediately goes to some sort of spam win a prize website. Had this problem a year ago and now it is back. Same as last time; C.F. is THE only website that this happens on. Had to enter this from a borrowed computer...

WEZ is right - iPhones & iPads were developed and designed to view gay pr0n. You don't hear any Android users whining, because Android is set up for good, old fashioned, regular pr0n. Give up your gay lifestyle, quit watching gay pr0n and return from the dark side.

How do you KNOW its the ghey pr0n, I guess you've tested it multiple times on a daily basis to legitimize your hypothesis?

Having the same problem here. 1st started on my iPhone last week very intermittent and now its happing so often I can't use it to view CF. Now just last night it started on my iPad. Hopefully it doesn't hit my MacBook. Are the forum owners doing anything to stop this?

Same problem here.

Another thread on the issue: https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...e-tonight.html

I'm sure they know about the issue (which existed a while back but was fixed). But apparently they A) can't find a fix yet or B) don't care too much. It is certainly cutting back on some forum usage, so you'd think they'd be motivated to find a fix.

There's a thread going on this in the Help section. I don't use apple devices so I'm not experiencing the problem, but the tech team says to post up screen shots so they can track it down and remove the advertisers who are failing to follow site rules.

Moving this to the Help section.

It is difficult to update and monitor multiple threads covering the same topic/issue.

Linked below is the current discussion with acknowledgement that there is a known issue and that it's not specific to CorvetteForum or just websites under the same ownership:
