ksn1219 :  I just got the same thing.

Hilariously, I needed to turn off my TWO content blockers for five minutes so I could buy a Christmas present. Literally the second I forgot about this issue and visited Weddingbee before turning them back on, my browser was instantly hijacked to the sketchy spam site posted above by pp. Here is the URL:

I had to clear my entire browser history to escape from being constantly redirected over and over to the site. Not the high point of my internet experience today. VERY frustrating.

orangeblossomspecial :  Thanks, I have passed along this link to our tech team to block this ad.

To everyone experiencing this redirect ad issue, I’m sorry. I know it’s incredibly frustrating and screwing up your experience on Weddingbee. I have discussed the renewed upsurge in redirect ads with our tech and admin teams and they are looking into the issue.

Mrs mouse, as an admin I’m sure all you get is complaints so I wanted to tell you the good news this time– that I have not had one spam pop up taking up my screen.  Not one all day any time I visited the website.  

I hope it holds like this!  Thank you for whatever you did and are doing to help this situation!
