    The number of redirects to malicious ads on mobile has been ridiculous the last couple of days.

    Chrome is refusing to open even half of the pages I visit here.

    I don't mind ads. I've run sites before and know the costs associated with it so I know that they're a necessary evil sometimes.

    Don't like it when they're dodgy and shoved down your throat though.

    Maybe that should be part of the Gold membership, could get a lot of folk signed up?

    I thought the Micro Payment facility would've taken hold by now, think most folk are internet savvy enough to know web sites need funding and making small payments is much better than ads.

    I've asked people to alert me the moment they're getting redirected, as it shouldn't be happening. I can only look into it if I know there's an issue.

    I think I've removed the ad that was causing it. Could you let me know if it happens again?
