OK, this happens a lot now. On my Android tablet, I hit the "Reply" icon on a thread, the icon...

... blinks to indicate I hit it.. and in place of a reply page I get an advertisement! Now, I make a point of occasionally clicking on an ad to help support the site, I don't use the apps to make ads vanish, but this happens two or three times a day. There are no ads within an inch or more of where I click and I don't have Parkinson's so that's not the issue. Also, it's not just the reply, sometimes it's when calling up a profile or something else.

The icon I DO want blinks, showing that the system knows I tapped it, but sometimes I get a page "Do you realize the value of having YOUR OWN SET of encyclopedia?!"

Just kidding about that particular ad...

1. Do you have more than one browser to test with?

I don't have an Android device so I can't relate my own relevant experience (or try to recreate the problem), but I can say I don't have that issue with the iCab Mobile browser I normally use on my iPad. It has ad blocking filters - so you might want to try to find a browser with ad blocking capabilities for testing.

Does the issue happen on other sites? If so, more or less often?

Are you getting the desktop version or the mobile version of Discussionist?

Perhaps an actual Android user or two will chime in...

2. It doesn't appear to happen else where. I always switch to desktop mode after I'm on any site...

... wish I had a setting that would allow me to STAY desktop, but no...
