    About every 10 to 15 minutes this pops up and is next to impossible to close. So far it's only happening while on BYC. Im not positive its coming from here or what, im not tech savvy at ALL!... ideas?

    Thanks for letting us know, we're looking for these so we can block them.

    When you see one, can you provide one example of the URL of the page you are redirected to and/or the URL of the problem ad?

    That will help as we work to find / block these ads.

    Thanks for keeping me posted! We are digging through to find which ad Network it is coming from.

    Could you message me with your device type & browser you're using, and the click URL on the ad? You can usually get this by right-clicking if you are on a desktop computer and copying the link URL, or on a mobile device usually you can long-press on the ad and copy the location URL
