    Twice today I have clicked on a thread and gotten a pop up with”Congratulations!” I click close on the window, which takes me to happy dot luckstar dot com which has come ons for Walmart.

    What’s up?

    I haven't seen the spam pop-ups, but I have had my Norton AV notify me of several web attack/intrusions while I've been on HTF over the past couple of days. This has not happened while surfing other sites.

    No acknowledgement or response @Dave Upton or anyone in administration?

    This thread has over 130 views, but ... crickets.

    I'm sorry, but I don't have any answers for you as I'm not experiencing such issues. @Dave Upton, @Adam Gregorich, @Ronald Epstein

    I use an AdBlocker so I guess it's blocking the spam thankfully.

    I’m getting it on my iPad just recently. I don’t think on this site, but definitely while reading Apple News.
