I'm also getting the same problem with Safari on iOS, and it's getting worse. Was happening maybe 1-in-4 threads and was getting bounced to f2o3.pw, not it's happening constantly and getting bounced to multiple sites.

Site is now completely unusable on iOS.

This is preposterous for a paid website. I will not be renewing my membership when it expires. Paid members should not see any advertising let alone this malware.

Agreed.

Now I'm willing to give them some slack (right now) because it's Christmas and I'm sure (and actually hope) that most of the staff are spending time with their families.

But they gotta take care of this...

it's happening to me as well, we apologize. We had a skeleton team in the office and they apparently were not successful in eradicating this nuisance. I expect an update at 9am pst, and will respond in this thread when I get it.

Yep, sucks. Ipad, not android. And let State Farm know I'll never buy from them since I have to pay to see their ads. Thanks.
I'm not computer savvy, but this seems like a poorly curated paid site.
Enjoy Off Topic, but won't renew if this malware isn't taken care of. And WHY do I have to pay to see ads on the page? I should be paid to look at them.
