Just got the fake virus scam pop up on my phone. This after my work computer said viruses were on the site.....

One of the best opening day rosters in years. Now go get 'em.

Brock, now I'm getting this, too, but only when using my phone. Here are the screen captures.

I'm going to try staying in full version mode as that seems to help but it's much more difficult to read and maneuver the site on my phone in that mode.

I rarely access TD on my (Android) phone, but yesterday I did and immediately ran into the annoyance that ChiTown reported. There is some bad juju going on and needs to be tracked down.

Everyone hates me because I got cured of paranoia and they didn't.

It's only on my phone while in the mobile version. When I go to full version, that seems to abate.

Yup. Getting on my phone, again, but not elsewhere.

Anyone still having this issue?

Not me ... but then I've been on my phone less while reading TD.

No, but like Chi, I haven't visited from my phone much lately either.

I used the phone yesterday to check on the site, and in that brief time I don't recall any problems. That contrasts with my report back in August.

I'm on my cell now ... nothing popping up. It would have by now. All I can suggest is if it's problematic, notify Brick and switch to full version mode. For now it's good for me.

Yeah, and famous last words. Something out there heard that and I expect to be bombarded for it later today.

heh ... I saw that after it posted ... derp ... auto-correct ... or a typo ... i and o are too close together on a cell phone keypad ... but i decided to just let it go because I'm tired of editing stuff, even my own ;)

 

Sorry, Brick ... er, I mean Brock ... damn it!
