Just now I was reading some new posts and it automatically jumped me to yellowpages.com. Just like you said I couldn't redirect with a new browser address, I had to hit back twice to come back to WI...I immediately started looking through the forum to see if this happened to anyone else this morning! Glad mine wasn't a jump into beer...I might have seen it as divine inspiration....
Mine goes to yellow pages and then a map to a big city near where I live. I'm not clicking on it, it's like when I log in it'll say something like log in now and I'll click on it and then that's where it takes me and where yours took it is really bad. And someone said something about the ***y french video, ya, umm NO! That's bad.
This happened to me three times within the space of 30 minutes this morning. Twice I got jumped to a yellow pages search page, and once to a Kelly Blue Book car value page. The worst part is that the first time it happened, I was in the middle of a lengthy PM to my gift coach, and I lost the whole thing!
I thought it was something with my computer and was about to launch a virus scan, but now I see that it is a problem with WI and that it is happening to others as well.
Admins, this is serious and needs to be looked into immediately. Do I flag the thread to make sure a Mod or Admin sees this?

For me, I get taken to Lycos.... which I've NEVER gone to before. Getting very frustrating when these advertisements can 'take you' to their site, even when you are no where near their ad on the forum, and don't click on them. Pop up and drop down menu's are one thing, but being carried away like a hostage is another thing. I DO NOT LIKE IT and really hope that something will be done to prevent these situations from continuing to happen here in WI
Thanks to Nickelcat, I am going to report my own thread! Kudos and reputation point to Nickelcat for the advice. Seems like this is the kind of situation that needs attention.
And thanks to everyone else for letting the administration know that spontaneous advertisement is going on and we really don't like that it is happening. Everyone can rate this thread 4 stars so we can continue to let WI know about things going on.
Hello WI administration! Please look into the spontaneous ad jumping occurring in WI.
One other thing you can try is going into your browser and hit your tools button hit options go into privacy then hit advanced and block all third party cookies, this will cut back on the amount of security risks as well. Also make sure your pop up blocker is on, very strange that your computer is just jumping to an add, perhaps this will help Good luck all!
