It appears I could view all topics in threads except politics where I then get spammed and blocked out.

Tried opening additional windows in chrome and closing out the spam without opening it it keeps coming back it will not let me in politics.

On the Democratic enemy apparently....lol

Am I alone here?

Android chrome desktop view, clearing cache doesn't change it.

It's a popup from what I can tell.

Re: Spam


It actually hijacked the page. I have 2 cells, both android. On one I could click on the tabs and close the offending adware, but there was no tab there for CT. It had been hijacked.

It seemed to be associated with s particular ad set.
