Alert & Redirect Adverts?!?

Whenever I browse to these forums on my mobile (Nexus 5 with Chrome), I almost always get a stupid alert box popup saying something like my phone has a virus, or my app store is outdated.

Earlier today, I got the app store outdated one, and then it actually redirected me to a completely different page! The dialog kept on coming back up onto the screen when I dismissed it.

Please get rid of these spam ads! I don't understand why you have them on the site!

P.S I was unsure as to where to post this...

I also get these really annoying redirects on my Galaxy S4 saying my web browser is too slow and keep having to go back and try again. I once couldn't even access the forums because it kept redirecting. It's really annoying.

I do agree that any pop-up ads are annoying. Here's one that I got. http://puu.sh/77Ixg.png
