Colton rv ad that constantly pop up....

I cannot stand the constant pop ups from Colton Rv. Using my iPad this is the only website that regularly opens a new tab going to the Colton rv site. I wouldn't buy something from them because of the pop up. How can we stop this?

It only happen in airforums on my iPad.

Today is the first day that the Colton RV pop-up has taken over my iPad Mini.

Normally it just opens in a new tab, but today it seemed to prevent any Airforums windows from opening up correctly. Instead I get this URL:

about:blank

Peter

PS -- A while ago I downloaded a couple of ad blockers for the Mac laptop. Maybe it is time to do so for the iPad?

PS2 -- Janet have there been any changes to this Colton Pop-up situation in the last day or two? As I said above today was the first time it seemed to take over my iPad Mini.

Thanks,

Peter

I'm with you. I'd be hesitant to trust a dealer that needs to be in your face all the time.

I have been seeing an ad from Airstream of Tennessee, that opens in the way you described.
I've sent them a few emails using their "contact" tab on their webpage when it opens, promising I will never set foot in their business!!!

Hasn't stopped the annoying ads, but made me feel better.

Maybe if we all did this they would get the message?

One could only hope

Maybe just maybe Colton RV pays for all the website hits redirected from his site. I am not sure how all that works. It is annoying and I go to click on a topic and Colton rv tab opens. I goto page 2 of a topic and it pops up. I read four threads and I have 12 Colton RV tabs.

I don't know where Colton RV is but I don't wish them well.

I just installed the AdBlock Mobile App on the iPad, and the world is back to normal.

Why Airforums permits such an intrusion on this site is beyond me.



Peter

PS -- There is an older thread I just remembered:

FYI a newer thread:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f138...up-172720.html

I had to install AdBlock Mobile on the iPad, as the Colton RV pop up started disabling my browsing a couple of days ago.

Try the Adblock Mobile App.

If I am ever in northern NY I will take the time to shop for a new Airstream at Colton, spend hours and hours of time there, asking all kinds of stupid questions, then walk out, explaining this whole fiasco to them.

Guessing that Airforums permits the Pop Up Invaders according to the geographic location of each poster.

Terrible Marketing IMO!

I'm on my iPad, and haven't seen it. Are you all on safari, or the air forum app? It's not that want to see it!

On my laptop Edge, Explorer, Chrome all have the same result.
On my Android phone using the web ap or Chrome the same.

I'm past due on sending my annual contribution.
Maybe that is the reason some of us are seeing these ads?

On the iPad Mini it happened in Safari and Firefox, but a day or two ago, the Colton pop up took over Firefox per Post #2.

All is good now with AdBlock Mobile.
