Anyone tired of getting the “you have won” bull crap

I keep getting “congrats you been selected” crap while reading threads. I hit the back button but eventually stop at a partially naked women in my area. Everyone likes a partially naked women except when they are trying to research a problem with their Jeep.

Anyone else getting these pop ups, maybe if I am not alone I won’t feel so bad!

Might be a problem of your computer and not this site. I don't see those ads.

It is on my iPhone. I thought initially it was not being logged in, but that has not made a difference.

Frustrating to say the least.

I don't get them on my desktop.
I won't go online with my phone except in an emergency. I don't want to be tracked if I can help it.

What other sites are you visiting that might be selling your info, such as location or purchases?

Good Luck, L.M.

The only way that I ever use my phone is to use hot spot, so I can Wi-Fi through Verizon to my IPad.
I don't get any of these pop ups..never did. No problem through my CP using Chrome.

users on apple products, please post the links to the pop-ups that you're getting. we need to remove them and it seems to be only targeting certain people and their location probably.

Got the same link as “1994 JEEP YJ” yesterday when I surfed the forum without signing in. I bailed out and signed in the next go around without issue. I was using an iPhone X via Safari browser

I don’t get them on iOS if my content blocker is turned on. If I switch it off for something, I get them.

When I get tired of searching for answers to my Jeep issues, I turn to the websites with the ladies.

We are still working on tracking these spam redirects. They are not intended to be part of the ad network. Please bear with us, I l know these are annoying. They do appear to be primarily targeting IOS users browsing with safari.
