A few times when I've tried to use the site today it's randomly diverted to a porn site. I haven't clicked on anything it just cycles through some pages and ends up on the one attached (apologies for the images but thought might help if you had web address). I'm using safari on an iphone5 and this isn't happening on any other sites.

I have just been redirected to some lesbian porn too.

Me too! Safari, iphone!

I just started a similar thread..I've clicked to close the ad tab before it fully loads but I wonder if mine is porn too. Mine happens when I click the Active button, about 2x out of 5, a new tab opens and it's an ad about to load. On PC.

Urgh is Jeffrey back? Community service didn't teach him a lesson?

Mine didn't divert to porn but it diverted due to an ad and went to the AppStore. When I came back here it had this a pop up showing I had violated this that and the other laws re porn and I couldn't click off it.

Had to clear history and restart phone.

I will email screen shot as it has my IP address on it.

I got the dating pop up too.

I've just reported this post to flag it for HQ's attention...hopefully they can get tech to look into it.

Not as interesting as some, but mine is diverting to a tesco clipboard thingummy or a pop up telling me my device has viruses and I must click now to have them dealt with hmm

It's really shit. I thought they'd sorted this out by now? It has been going on for weeks

Exact same pop up here! And also diverted me to the AppStore for an audiobook app download.

Same thing happening to me this morning, I am on an iPhone. It has directed me to AppStore a couple of times and last time to something like ' Fucksnet'. Good time to log off and go and do something useful with my day!

Apologies again

Just got this. Didn't proceed to the App Store, obviously, so I've no idea what it was trying to sell me.
