Yes, we've got the ads being "hidden" so they aren't visible, but they're still there in memory without an adblocker. While I *do* use an adblocker (and NoScript) on my PC, I don't have one on my android phone, and today my phone browser was redirected multiple times to someplace offsite upon posting instead of being taken back to where my post was in the thread. I don't know how malicious this site was as I closed the tab ASAP before it loaded each time, but that's definitely not good.

Obviously there's not anything we can really do about it unless we were to ditch forumotion - which in my opinion moving would probably be asking too much as we're already a shadow of what the original TSF was without doing that - but I thought it was important to bring attention to nonetheless.

tl;dr use an adblocker on Reservia if you aren't already, otherwise be very careful because I have NO IDEA what it was trying to load on my phone.

That's forumotion getting shadier indeed.

Moving to another free service would be tough for the reason you mentioned but also other free services are vulnerable to the same kind of issue if they don't or won't watch their ad services.
