    I can’t do anything other than submit the info to Google, and await their resolution. Sorry.

    Out of curiosity, how does Google factor in? If they hosted the site that would make sense, but is there even a "GWS"?

    Like I should be able to type in "forums.insideuniversal.net" and Google wouldn't have to be involved or even need to know.

    What am I missing?

    BTW, thanks for all you do running these forums! (I'm just curious about the whole Google thing)

    The ads that support the site are from Google AdSense.

    I understand man. Let’s hope they’ll actually do something. I bet this is occurring on other sites as well, and Alphabet makes most of their money from AdSense.

    Just to put another data point in that pop up- I tried accessing the forum from Safari on my iPhone this weekend and kept getting that ad and basically wouldn't let me proceed. However, I switched to Google Chrome's app and I didn't have any issues from that browser.

    I'll add that I have yet to experience an issue on Google Chrome mobile as of most recent complaint.
