Default Annoying Amazon ads

I posted a complaint elsewhere on the Forum (and hopefully the right people will see it) but is anyone else suddenly having trouble with Amazon ads popping up with gift offers? It completely replaces the forum site and I can't get rid of it except by closing down the site and starting over again. It is incredibly annoying and invasive. I called Amazon and they said it's the forum site. I did some research and the vendor is Reward Zone LLC USA. I want it stopped--it makes it impossible to browse this site. It's happened to me 3 times in the past 2 days...

This started just this week for me. On the iPad. It is a phishing scam.

This thread should be moved to ‘feedback “

I had the same issue so I removed history, cookies etc and have not had the issue since. Also did Safari, advanced, remove website data.

I use an Adblock and haven't seen it before. I'd suggest uBlock Origin or Disconnect. Both are extensions for all major browsers.

Also, if they can finally fix the "infinite scroll" thing and let us disable it, that would be great.

Scroll all the way to the bottom of the forum page, there is a pull down menu, choose --Classic Next Gen
