You won free amazon card pop up causing issue.

How do I get ahold of the moderators or someone in charge? This site keeps popping up the “you won a free amazon card” spam and I have to shut the page down and re open. I googled the issue thinking the issue was on my end and found out it is a sneaky spam attack that comes from the site and those that run the site don’t know about it. The spam backdoors on one of the allowed advertisers from what I read. Way over my pay grade. Anyway, the suggestion was tell the website of the issue. I could not find contact info to directly relay the issue. Any direction is helpful.

There was another thread about it but I don't see it right now. The only time it happens to me is when I am on my iPhone and not using the enhanced view. It doesn't pop up on my lap top or my iPad...

That's because the ads are mobile targeted. Specifically mobile desktop

Is it anything the forum has control over? Or is it more like a virus or malware? On mine once I get that popup I cannot do anything else on my device browser. I can't back out, if I close it and reopen the browser it goes to the same page....

It's on our end, not yours. There is an exploit with Apple devices and some site that's allowing the popups in. They sneak in through the regular communication that places regular ads here. We're working on it, and for the short term if you report the link that it takes you to, I can put a specific block so at least that link shouldn't come back.

This happens because malicious coders buying ad space from Google, Rubicon, and all manner of other providers, and writing ads that trigger those obnoxious redirects when you're on a desktop skin on a mobile device. It's why we have mobile skins. It's also not localized to us, it's a global ad issue, CNN, buzzfeed, msnbc, any site that uses these adsense type ads. We're trying to catch them as we get them

Here's an article on it if you want to read
