What a pain this ad is. For the record, we're not getting a dime from this hijacking ad, we're only getting bad reviews on the App Store in return :(

Looking at it again today. In the meantime, if you haven't checked out our New iOS Forums App: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/redflag ... 92155?mt=8 give it a whirl. It's a bit buggy but we're working hard to make it better and better.

- back to bug hunting..

Oddly enough, I haven't had the issue since you made the first initial fix.

Edit: started again March 10

Going to try the forum app because it is super annoying! At least 3 redirects to apps. I thought it was on purpose, some way for RFD to make some more money but it is sooooo annoying. Glad to hear it's not them on purpose.

Happening to me in Hot Deals forum. iOS app. Issue with forums app is that it doesn't load images?
this site is like a drug. Its forum is the drug dealer.

I am also experiencing this issue right now, Rogers LTE, constant redirects, cannot come back to the forum. Shutting down the app does not fix the problem, after 5 min of browsing it comes back.

Saw Evony game app as ad on top of RFD when spam started. Maybe the culprit ad

While browsing the forum on iOS, I just got redirected to the App Store with big fish casino appearing. Very annoying.

Hey folks, I was able to reproduce this morning.. Looking to make some big action today - either it gets fixed (once and for all) or we take down that ad spot on the top of the page.

See attached, the spam ad that's causing all this.
