I agree! Glad to see I'm not the only one. It's terrible. Can't even use the back arrow key to get back to lotus talk. This is on the iPad. Only way out is to shut down the browser completely and start over.

yep. Ipad (and Ipod touch). Totally UNACCEPTABLE. I deleted the LT bookmark from IOS devices and wont browse the page from my
Apple devices any longer. Thanks, AG.

Hi.

I saw this too. Something running JavaScript. Every time I get the window the address has rackcdn.com in it. Turned JavaScript off in Safari and no more issues. But now most pictures do not show up and I cannot post. I mostly use the iPad to read the posts so I do not miss it. I use the PC for all other browsing.

It does seem to only happen with this site when I open a new tab. It must be something they are allowing. Shame on them for allowing this.

I haven't seen much out of the clowns that run this site to lead me to believe they know what they're doing.

As an alternative have you tried using Tapatalk? I use it on my mobile devices and have zero complaints.

I've had to stop reading it on my ipad too, so I guess they're biting themselves in the foot by driving away viewers by placing more ads (or in the case of the ipad it's pure spam)....

Sorry for these ads guys. They are not supposed to ever be ads like this on the site, but for some reason they are by-passing our filters and getting here. While we are working on fixing that bigger problem, we are doing a short term fix by specifically blocking the ads as they show up.

So I need the links to those ads when you get them. Copy and paste the url here and I'll file a block.

Adding what I have found.

If I am not logged into LT, I get selected/hijacked within 2 min while searching/reading LT.
If I log in, I can search/read LT without issue.

Apexes are a lot like relationships. So tough to get right, so easy to see where they went wrong.

The secret to a long life is ------- not dying.
