For the past few days I've been getting auto-forwarded to spam/phishing/ad sites from SD forum/thread pages. Hugely annoying. Only happens on my phone looking at the desktop site thru chrome.

I'm confident saying it's from a malicious ad(s) though I couldn't tell you which ones. Sits on the thread for 5-10 seconds then loads the garbage site over it (not in a new window/tab).
Can you grab a screenshot, URL or something that helps us track down the bad ad?
We hate them too and work at keeping them of of the site but they are hard to find without some clues.
