I have NEVER in 8 years of using a smartphone, had ANY popups like this.  This is appalling.  Apparently the site has infected my phone.  Ive cleared the cache and nothing works.  And it seems to get worse and worse.  Popup blocker apps are completely.separwte BROWSERS...not just an app.  Im not going to change browsers to some off-brand simply to run SOL.  I think its kinda odd that SOL does this, and we are on our own to try to find remedies.  Its literally popping spam.every 30.seconds.  PLEASE HELP!  

As much as i have loved SOL for years, Inwill not put up.with this much longer.

Also, I'm switching from Chrome to Dolphin browser.  Opening SOL I get a security warning.  Attached screenshot.  This is not inspiring confidence.

One last comment...i do vast majority of my surfing on phone.  Dragging out a big laptop and plugging in the cord is not what i do.  If SOL wont work on a phone, it's not going to work for me.

There are at least a dozen threads all over the site explaining what’s going on and what we are doing to fix it. The pop ups are not normal, they aren’t legitimate ads, they don’t infect your phone, they aren’t paid ads and they aren’t staying.

For the record there are ad blockers that aren't whole new browsers.  That's what I've resorted to.

It is evident by the 30 threads everyone only has problems when they are on this site. Coincidence? Highly doubted.

I make varius searches on Google through the day and never do I get any of these kind of annoying pop ups on the other sites, not even on porn sites.

I love SOL but the adding a pop up  blocker is putting a band aide on a bigger problem. Although it works, the app slows my phone down and this mask is just not cutting it as an answer.

This has been going on for weeks and we just hear I will be fixed or clear your cache.

I love this site and surf it multiple times a day however lately not so much.

Please fix this issue.

Dave, the issue should be fixed. I don't know how you completely avoid those kind of popups, I rarely go to other sites but when I do I often see the same popups that just recently started showing up here. And I'm not talking about porn sites either.

I have to agree with dave on this. Other sites I go to no pop ups at all. I'm glad your trying to fix it also. I know rome wasn't built in a day but how long does it take to fix something like this?

All this is done by phone? I don't use my phone to look at this site, so I have not seen any of it, and by the sounds of it, I am glad...
