Pop up


This is a little off topic but I am having a problem with a “Amazon “ pop up that keeps coming up when I am on here. Only happening with RCG site. Puts me into an infinite loop and the only way to get out of it is to exit the site. Any one else having this happen?

Post this on site suggestions/complaints subforum, you will find several others there with the same issue. RCG techies are working on it - they could use the url of the malicious ad, the type of device you are using (PC/laptop/tablet/phone/whatever) and your geographical location.

Gratter, I am have the same issue using iPad. It's a survey that states Amazon is targeting customers in my town or nearby town. I clear history and cookies, but when on RCG it comes back. I'm sure it's a scam.

Yeah, happens on mine, too. I just keep turning it off by closing out the page on my iPad. It's a real PITA!

Don't know if it will run on your device, but I use SUPERAntiSpyware on my desktop and laptop. Cleans out the tracking cookies and has fixed the dreaded system hi-jack pop-up before.

Heard from a moderator. Not the only one with this problem and they are working on it.

So THIS is what's happening eh? I've been getting the same Amazon pop up, and this is on my IPad, I was curious since the IPad is pretty much immune to spam which I thought this was. Now we know it's RcG's new owners playing around. What a shame, I hope they don't ruin this site. They are also playing with "Facebook likes" on LTUP. Keep it up new owners and many of us will leave in droves.

More likely it's somebody slipping a bad ad through the cracks. That's the usual vector for this sort of thing. Hard for the site owners to fix as they need to work with their banner ad provider to determine which ad has the bad code in it, and then block that ad.

Same problem here on my IPad. Earlier this summer it invaded a weather website that I use. John
