    What the heck is with the Amazon pop-up on this site?

    Did HVAC-talk get hacked?
    Every time I use my iPad on this site there’s an Amazon promotion that pops up and won’t let me click off of it. It says I won some prize or something. Obviously some bs scam. Just wondering if anyone else is having this issue?

    I dont have the issue using Crapatalk.

    I get a bunch of other ads, but not the pop ups. The ads show as part of the news feed, and you can just scroll past them.

    I have had the issue when using Safari in general on some web sites.

    Using Mozilla and windows based computer, no issues.

    Is anybody experiencing these on anything but an iPad? Screenshots would be very helpful.
    Are you using desktop or the mobile theme when these ads appear?

    No problems on my PC with Chrome.
    My iphone 8 defaults to tapatalk, which is annoying, but no pop-ups.

    However, my ipad viewing hvac-talk in Safari does have spam amazon pop-ups when using a link from a post. I haven't found a way to click out of it.

    Was happening on my phone using Chrome this morning, no screenshots. Even displayed Amazon redirect on my HVAC shortcut. Seems to be resolved now.
