What are the ads about? To what pages are you being sent?

Obviously unwanted... but please provide as much info as possible so I can feed that back.
So far only on telephone; I got an add about a supermarket (Jumbo) being opened near me and that I needed to give them info in order to win a €100,- free shopping card...

Ps.
As mentoined before, it took over the whole page and I needed to close the window in order to get rid of it.

Just got another full screen as telling me I had won an iPhone 7 and I had just 60 seconds to pick my colour.

The ad was in English but Google wanted to translate it from German.

I wonder who's picking up the tab for those spam adverts?

Just got a full screen advert on the main page.

Definitely not nice.

So, you just go to f1t (which page), you end up on a different page automatically, which then shows a popup?

I just clicked on the data logger thread via a notification and after that appeared (briefly) that took me to a page show a well endowed man being pleasured by two buxom ladies.

I grabbed a screenshot but it is so NSFW.

Same for me when I'm browsing on my phone it only comes up on this site.

No offence means I'm about to hurt your feelings, but let's pretend I didn't.

When you type in f1technical.net the home page is loading and it takes you to these adverts.

With domain & hosting so cheap now days, i do have to ask if much is/can be generated through ads that would even make the effort worthwhile? I didnt think it is, but maybe i am living behind a rock...
Not for nothing, Rosberg's Championship is the only thing that lends credibility to Hamilton's recent success. Otherwise, he'd just be the guy who's had the best car. (Ask the average Vettel fan what that's like.) --- bhall II

Hosting prices have dropped indeed, but they need to be paid as well.
Just like photographs, domains, design costs, ...

Anyway, full page ads are unwanted anyway, so we'll be reverting to plain old simple google ads in due course.
Again, sorry for the inconvenience!
