While using my Ipad today, a gift card scam pop-up appears on the anime news homepage. everytime I tried to report the issue the ad would immediately open. It seems to affect only IOS not Android or Window systems. the Site is called "happy.uslucky.xyz"

I also tried to used the "report a problem" tab on the Anime news site. It kept saying "failed to report use forum"

I keep getting pop-up ads about Lexus cars that load in a new tab. Some get blocked by Google Chrome, some don't. There is only the image of the ad and no words that indicate where the ad is coming from on the page. I have gotten at least five now while browsing the forums. This happened around 1:30-1:35PM PST. While making this post, the bottom of the page says "served by kurisu-chan cloudflare ray# 4e87f20927de2886-SJC". The URL are variations of this: animenewsnetwork.com/exponential/tfbuster.html#?flashVer=0&ver=1.28&th=9012828625&tagKey=115382177&site=animenewsnetwork&adSpace=usa&center=1&size=160x600,300x250,300x600&env=display

^ I'm having the same issue as the poster above me, since at least 3 days ago. Whenever I go to another page or an article, etc, a new tab (sometimes two tabs) is created in my browser (Google Chrome), displaying a banner ad on an otherwise blank white page. This happens on nearly every page/article I go to, and it's gotten so bad that I've had to turn on my ad blocker, and ANN is one of the new sites I don't usually have an ad blocker enable. Pop-up blockers don't even help; I have to disable all ads.

On my phone, the ads attempt to pop-up in a new tab/window there too, but my phone manages to block these successfully (and lets me know a pop-up was blocked).

Thanks. I'm able to see from the info you've posted, where that ad is coming from. But if you see it again, please use the "report a problem" feature.
