Having just been randomly chosen to perform a survey on something called an i-Phone to get back to this forum I had to restart rather than press the go back button as I was seemingly locked in and could only go back by filling in the survey. Would it be possible for members to (a) have a preference to opt out of these random selections or (b) have a quick exit route put in so that I don't have to waste my time getting back to where I was.

I had the same thing happen earlier, but had very little problem returning to the page I'd been on previously. Still very annoying, though. :mad:

It's just happened to me again. Is there any action the BB admin can take to prevent this, please?

Hi all,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention - this is not an advert which has been cleared to run on Autosport and it sounds like there may have been a problem with one of the third parties who run advertising on our site.

If anyone sees this again, could you please send a screenshot as well as any additional data (such as the URL of the survey or where it's taking you through to) through to Simon.Grayson@haymarket.com - that will make it easier for me to find out where the ad has come from and get it taken down as quickly as possible.

Incidentally, we are running an AUTOSPORT reader survey at the moment, but this is something entirely different. The link to the survey has been appearing on news stories rather than the Forums. You'll only get taken through to the survey if you click on the link to it and it's very easy to get out of the survey again!

"juicyru.com" comes up, then quickly goes to another url with the "congratulations you have won..." stuff. Doesn't let you come out of it without restarting browser window.

This is what I'm getting (and which I emailed to Simon yesterday):

I find that as long as I first close the little 'Message from Webpage' box I can revert to an earlier page without having to close the browser.

Can't say that's what I'm getting. I get various ads I think, all started by going through this 'juicyru.com' url.
I thought maybe it's on my machine, but it does appear to only happen whilst on this site.
