    The problem is, iPhone's Safari doesn't have an ad blocker, which is what everyone is running into. FYI - this isn't actually run by Amazon, it's just malware attached to someone's ad that's coming through the exchange server that ASFN shares its ad space with.

    Make sure Safari security settings are turned on, particularly Block Pop-ups and Fraudulent Website Warning. On your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings > Safari and turn on Block Pop-ups and Fraudulent Website Warning.

    Similarly, if that isn't working, you should be able to go to Safari > Advanced, and toggle off Javascript. That will prevent this from popping up, but limit functionality on some sites as well.

    I'd recommend updating to the newest version of iOS as well... but I know some on older phones may not want to do that.

    No blocker on IPad either. New OS doesn’t help!

    My guess is contributors to ASFN do not get the ads??

    It's not a problem for me.

    $20 a year is a cheap price to pay to be free of ads.

    It's an epidemic for all site owners. We complain about it and one is removed then another pops up. I'll see if I can get it removed.

    I'm getting this on chrome on android. Forum killer. I've been here since 2002 and I'd rather go to the cards page on reddit right now until this gets cleared up. This happened to me twice now in the last 5 minutes.
