Bad ads

Postby MarkM » Sun Apr 13, 2014 8:34 am

Apparently you guys are running some ads that cause my iPad to switch the the App Store and prompts me to download the Zoosk app.

I know you likely don't choose which ads get run, but hijacking like that sucks. :?

I'll look into it, but this is first I've heard of it... Without more detail (where is the ad), it's a bit like chasing a needle in a haystack... Any more detail for me?

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

It happened this morning when I was reading Goodnight, Sweet Prince Fielder (http://razzball.com/goodnight-sweet-prince-fielder/) and it's happened other times when reading other articles as well.

I don't think I saw a Zoosk ad anywhere on the page, but it could be another ad acting maliciously, seeing that I'm on mobile Safari and knowing that it can try and create a "popup" to the Zoosk app which will launch the App Store app automatically on the iPad/iPhone.

If it'll help, I'll post more updates about when and where it happens in the future.

Might be a bug on your ipad. My Iphone had an issue for a while where sometimes when I was on a site it would open the app store and bring up candy crush saga. It had nothing to do with the sites I was visiting.
