    Mobile forum viewing ... spams and scams

    For over 6 months now, when viewing the forum on my mobile and waiting for a page to load, it occasionally loads up spam pages. These pages will not let me navigate back to the forum site, will make my phone vibrate, and constantly release a stream of pop ups. What's the deal ?
