Yeah but I don't know the ad so I can't report it.

Also, why is GameFAQs running malicious ads on mobile?


There is also this annoying thing that redirects mobile browsers to a scam page imitating Amazon. When people bring it up, they are told to screenshot the ad but the redirect is instant and often occurs when I am no where near where the ads display (making it impossible to screenshot).

Opera mini will help. Take the screenshot of ad.

This is really weird.

I'll hit the quote button to quote a post, but then my phone will open an ad and/or the Play Store but the post will still be quoted in "post new message".

This has to be deliberate.

None of this is deliberate and some of it even sounds beyond what a simple ad could do. If you could, any time you see something off happening, like a file start downloading, immediately scroll to the bottom of the page that you're on and click the red "Report Ad" link, which will then send us the info for all of the ads on your current session. This can help us track down malicious ads or otherwise help determine that something else is going on.

I'll keep a look out, but since it already downloaded whatever it was before, I don't think it'll do it again.

Still nice to get a response though, thanks.
