Annoying (inappropriate) Advertising

Does anyone else keep getting these pop up ads after clicking on threads? Screen shot of one below.
As you can see there's no 'ok' to click and no other way of getting rid of it except for closing PPRuNe. I'm not going to click on it at all just in case it's spam or malicious.
This happens in the iPhone and iPad and only on the PPRuNe mobile site.
Finally, I am no longer able to view the full site on the iPhone or iPad.

Can you post a screen shot please?

You should be able to view the Desktop site on mobile by going to the top left menu and clicking "desktop".

Twice now, my laptop has begun audio ads before I even selected a forum. If this is the new normal, I will visit much less often. It is extremely annoying.

Mid-page ads are becoming a problem....especially when they are politically oriented ads.

Seems odd they are always from one end of the spectrum in hues of red/pink.

Is pprune or internet brands behind those ads?

Or is it Google doing this on my mobile devices somehow?

Political ads generally come from google.
