    I've flagged it with the IT administrators but it seems to be something only third-party ad providers can sort.

    Here's an attempt to explain what's going on from Vox Media:

    https://product.voxmedia.com/2018/1...-giftcards-and-what-were-doing-to-secure-them

    They're fighting a whack-a-mole battle with ad hijackers and it impacts some really big media sites, not just smaller ones like UKBF.

    What can help, in my experience, is clearing your cookies and cache so you might get served different ads.

    I really struggle to see how it works commercially

    I have no problem at all with people advertising/ selling to me - it’s how business works - but this is just a downer at all levels.

    These pop ups are on one this morning.

    It’s making the site borderline unusable today.

    it’s wild. Yesterday I hadn’t heard of All Saints. Today I’m deeply antagonistic towards them.

    The mobile version of Firefox has Privacy Badger and pop-up blocker extensions.

    How many hoops did they make you jump through to do that. I just cancelled my free trial and one of the options was "extend free trial" with small lettering under the big button explaining that it actually meant paying when the free trial finishes in a few days. That was just one of three "are you sure" pages I had to click a button on.
