Default Spam on mobile site

I keep getting pop ups that take over my browser but only when I'm using my phone and only this site. After a few minutes, it does it every time I reload the page.

I've also sent a note to the IB team about this. It's not something I'm personally seeing, but I don't use the mobile version at all.

My issue is fixed. using mozilla latest update.
Using apps to see the page isnt what i would wsnt to do.
Of course seeing all these other nonsponsor adds from google on the mobile site is aggravating also but what can ya do?

Well I only get on here from my iPhone so I've been using garage talk since before there was a mobile site. It's much more user friendly.

FWIW this problem is still going on. Had it happen to me just a few days ago. Ridiculous that we get slammed with all the ads on the regular version and still get pop up spam.
