    Adware

    I cannot get into the forum via the home page. For the last few days I keep getting adware: https://trends.gb.net/trends. Is this happening to anyone else? Is there a cure?

    It happened to me. My not too serious thought was that too many people were complaining about the spam filter being too aggressive, that they replaced the whole site with spam.

    However, I think they actually messed up a DNS (Domain Name Server) setting and we get directed to cyber squatting site. The error was cached and the cache entries expired for different people at different times, so some people got back on before others.

      I think it was sorted but your browser is still picking up the old redirect. Clear your browser cache.

          me too - it was annoying but now sorted. If only all our problems were so easily solved!

            I saw it happening.

            You could get to the main site but always got redirected if trying to get to the forum.

            Long story short I ruled out my PC or router.
            I sent them a 'contact us' message from the main site and it was sorted within an hour or two. (I hadn't cleared my cache).
            So looks like it was a server side issue.
