    I don't know if you can do anything about this, but this forum seems to be the only place on internet where, while surfing the web on my phone, without doing anything I end up getting subscribed to a serie of weekly paid value added services. And it's irritating because there's nothing one can do to stop it from happening.
    Aside from asking my carrier (in Italy) to stop my ability to subscribe to this kind of content, which I ended up doing.
    Yet, it's still a problem that happens ONLY if I'm on this site.

    I'd offer assistance but I don't think there's a way we can reliably replicate what you're experiencing.

    I imagined there's little you can do on your part.
    I just thought it was important to let you know this kind of problem happens only on this forum.
    Who knows maybe I'm not the only one with this issue.

    i cant surf this site on mobile because i constantly get malware redirects. Admins really need to switch to SSL. All our passwords are sent plain text over the internet......

    Yeah, the redirects are really exaggerated. Like it happens 80% of the time I try to hit the New Posts button.

    It's not like SSL is expensive or elusive magical technology, when you can get free valid certs from https://letsencrypt.org/ . What's more content severed over insecure connection are marked down/losing weight with search engines, and browsers aren't happy either.

    very true, but it is a bit of work updating all the databas links. A SQL website expert can do it quickly. Ive done it for the sites i build and im all self taught.

    I have requested SSL functionality, so far that has not been granted. I apologize for the inconvenience.

    Apologies accepted , we just wanted you to know that your site we enjoy is hacked and dishes out malware. For over a year now.
