Default Did AUSJEEP really move to forced advertising?

So I log in this morning, click on a forum thread and BANG, I get shoved to a new tab and the old tab is getting filled with advertising junk.

If this is the decision you guys have decided to go with then I am out, this is a joke and dangerous for us as subscribers. You will soon be added to the spam sites for most ISP because of it and Google will also push you down in rankings once they work it out.

I haven't noticed any overly obtrusive advertising but I've paid for an online supporters badge - perhaps that's why I don't see as much advertising.
If the advertising is such a problem for you, You can get a supporters badge on the link on the homepage.

This is not ausjeep opening a new tab. Check you haven't inadvertently picked up a "bot".

I'm not a paid supporter (but I should be) and this doesn't happen to me. I'm running Window 7 and internet explorer 11

I just tried logging in & all ok as well. As Clarky said, I suspect you have picked something up.

If you don't have it, try MalwareBytes to check & clean, it's free for personal use.

Thanks for feedback guys, we do not have popup ads, they detract too much from the experience, yes we do run a lot of native ads, but this reflects the costs and traffic being less and less each year due to Facebook when the running costs don't change.

I only just spoke to the service provider this week to try and get a discount on the hosting to no avail.

I have never had that problem with AJOR. Have seen it happen with other sites.
I agree with the others that you have probably picked up something nasty from another site.
What site is it sending you to?
