At Some Point in the Future, I'm Abandoning Fandom and TVTropes
#1
It started out with really, really freaking annoying advertisements on TV Tropes where it would redirect my iPhone Safari browser to a scam site. I figured because it was iOS it was more vulnerable due to more complicated nature of pop ups on it. And getting redirected in the middle of a trope page, on mobile viewing no less, is a pain to deal with, but I figured it was just a downside to iOS. And then Fandom started to do the exact, same, thing. And I'm like, okay, I can handle this.

And now it's happening on their desktop sites as well. I just had two articles on the FANDOM based Warframe wiki redirect me to some perverted bikini store. In the middle of a freaking article. I can't. I can't deal with this anymore. I'm sick of these stupid redirection ads giving me this crap, and I'll honestly rather ask the forums than bother with it.

You don't have uBlock or adBlock? Thinking

I avoid using Fandom/wikia on mobile. It happens less often with adblock, but this may become cumbersome if they know you have it enabled and ask you to disable it on their domain if you want to see any content.

Part of the reason Wikia has such terrible, terrible ads is because of how much ad block users cause a lack of revenue, leading to more aggressive ads. But also no.
