    Default Redirected to an "adult" site

    Per the banner at the top of the page, I'm reporting my issue here...

    I was just doing a Google search and one of the results was this thread. I clicked to open it in a new tab (I'm using Chrome), and suddenly I had a pop-up window for porn videos, and when I clicked on the tab that was supposed to be the forum, it was an adult site. I closed it very quickly, going "how in the heck did I get there??"

    When I went back to my Google search results and tried again, it opened the correct thread perfectly fine. Very weird.

    I had a similar experience this morning. It's been occurring for several days.

    I access this site through two mechanisms; one is giving problems, the other doesn't.

    On my desktop computer, I use firefox and I have bookmarked the site. When I access via desktop computer/firefox/bookmark, I never have a problem.

    On my iPAD, I use safari as a browser and I get to through a google search. When I click on the google results, I have lately been directed to another site. A while ago it was MyFile (I think) and a window for the App store would open also; more recently (the last few days) it has been some sort of 'adult' site. Each time, when I hit the 'back' button and then try linking through the search results again, I get to just fine.

    Default "likes" are gone, too That kinda stinks.

    I have not been having any redirecting issues....but a few days ago I was asked to "friend" someone I didn't know...who didn't seem to have much of a posting history. I did not friend that person. Their user name was "FamiliarChaos"....and that bugged me, because it seems a little suspicious. I tried to refuse the request several times and it kept asking. Finally, I left and re-entered the site from a different browser...refused the request AGAIN...and it went away.

    Oh! All my likes are gone, too. I feel unloved. Yesterday when I logged in I did get some sort of notification saying my info had to be resent, but the notification when away before I could do anything about it and everything was normal.

    I get the site redirect when I use the google custom search within SHS. The results turn up like they are supposed to, but the first time I tap (from ipad), I get redirected. backtracking to the search results page, I can tap on a result and get the right spot. Mystery of life.

    But not able to get warm fuzzies for appreciating other peoples posts how terrible!

    I know: not having the ability to "like" makes me realize how attention-starved I am! or how helpless unless I direct-quote!

    Are we being what is it, trolled or something? Tin foil hat time.

    My "likes" are gone, too! Now I know why nobody likes any of my posts (heh heh) .

    No porn redirect, though (using Firefox).
