Can anyone ahead some light on the constant spam of adverts and pop-ups i get when visiting the xda site on my phone? I can't browse xda anymore with my phone as a pop-up appears every 10 seconds redirecting me to a damn download link as my device has a supposed virus. Not only do you get pop-ups and redirects, but the site starts downloading "mobilegenie.apk" without my permission. How is all this shi!t allowed? Someone explain please, it is really annoying me I am now forced to use adblock just to view a few forum pages.

PS: i know tapatalk exits, i use it more than anything....but the times i need to view xda in the browser, i simply can't....on ANY rom.
