Sorry to resurrect this but...it's back. I'm on my iPad and I've just been redirected while trying to read on of the threads in I Need A Hug. It's the first time I've seen it since Google "fixed" the issue - hopefully, it's a one-time last ditch effort...

I hope so too. Just in case, have you cleared cookies & cache?

Yup - repeatedly!

It may just be a case of one rogue ad left and Google's ad-malleters have now got to it.

I'm getting a pop up when I try to navigate around this site that locks up my entire computer.  This is different from the re-direct problem, but far more troubling, because I can do *nothing* except power it down using the power button.  I didn't think to take a picture of the site it's trying to take me to, but I will if it happens again.  It's something about "your software needs updating", and it's not the regular update alert for my OS.  I'm using a MacBook running OS X Yosemite, if that matters.

I'm also being redirected when I try to click on a page number when reading a multiple page post. It's taking me to a website where it's telling me I must download their software before proceeding.

Like I said before, it locks up my entire computer, so I can't even get a screen cap, but I used my phone to take a picture before rebooting.
