Last few days I've gotten pop-up ads when visiting BN from my phone.  Anyone else gotten these?  They show up like the system alerts, requiring a tap to remove, and are trying to sell me on Candy Crush Saga.

... and they're coming from ad.yieldmanager.com


I've got a screen shot, if you really want to see it, but then I'd ave to go trough the upload-to-dropbox-or-somesuch process.

You should just play candy crush. Cause it's fun.

I have gotten the Candy Crush bullshit ones before - they are, at times, in very, very heavy rotation among the ad networks. I'll look into blocking it, but changes a few months ago (that have been, for the most part, very, very positive in terms of user experience, I think) have reduced my ability to have things like that changed for me.


Shorter explanation: heavier reliance on Google as an ad network means safer, better ads ... but almost no ability to root out those kind of mobile bullshit pop-ups (unless they're actually malware).

I only get them on my iPhone. My android seems to block these ads.

Got one on my Jelly Bean running Razor Maxx a few days ago, but I haven't seen any since.
