TFTV Redirecting

I've seen a couple threads mentioning this problem, but never to this extent.

For the past while (at least a month or two?) while browsing TFTV, it's been occasionally opening new tabs (without me clicking on anything?) to some kinda suspect websites. It hadn't gotten this bad before, but just now while browsing, this happened:

This isn't acceptable. I didn't want to, but sadly I have to turn adblock back on for TFTV. This needs to be addressed.

Thanks

Edit: previous threads, starting 3 months ago, reporting the same issue

edit again: thanks for the response enigma. I hope the problem gets dealt with on the network's end sooner or later! Merry christmas all :)

yeah usually redirects like this (although they can be due to the website having shady ads) are usually some sort of malware/virus, so try to get a scan going or something

Every fucking thread, people are like "its ur pc tftv isnt broken haha"

No. It's TFTV's fucking ads. I have no idea how anyone who's browsed without adblock on for more than 5 minutes hasn't had to deal with this shit.

This would be my assumption as well, but I ran a scan yesterday and nothing came up. Of course, Avast might have missed something, but I find that less likely in this case because:

I experience this as well on OS X viewing via Safari; it doesn't happen via Chrome with uBlock.

I noticed this earlier today, you might have accidentally set it to allow pop up ads if you're using chrome (not sure if this option is only available on OS X seeming i'm traveling atm.)

Isn't it sad that this thread has been made 4 times and the issue hasn't been fixed or at least addressed by enigma or mana at all?

the site doesn't produce pop-ups, it redirects to dodgy ad domains.

this is not a problem with anyone's pc, and while it's relatively rare, it only happens with adblock disabled. it's almost definitely a problem with some of the ads tftv is running.

I'm sorry but there really just isn't a solution. Every single ad network is battling this problem and I can't afford to remove ads altogether from the site. If it's a recurring problem for you, I encourage you to use an ad blocker.

That's very confusing to me. Among the sites I regularly browse with my adblock off are Reddit,Imgur, Twitch, occasionally YouTube, and several webcomics; yet it's only with TFTV that I get redirects.

I know it sucks to not be able to support a site like tftv, but the only way to stop these from popping up is by installing a 3rd party adblocker.
