The new Yachtworld

Like many of us I while away the off season surfing boat porn, looking for that retirement boat, or discovering rare ones.

Lately on Yachtworld I canít go more than 10 minutes without getting the dread browser take over ďYouíve won a prizeĒ or ďYouíre infectedĒ. It only happens on Yachtworld, so itís not me, itís them.

Is it just me?

I'm not seeing it either. I use Add Blocker Plus, and Norton Internet Security though...so perhaps that's making a difference ?

I only get the trash ads only on my iPhone. On the IPad I sometimes get the 'a problem occurred and this page was reloaded'
Both of these are specific to yachtworld.com. Nowhere else.

I keep getting a new screen popup that says something like "you have won a prise". Very irritating. Yachtworld really needs to address these issues.

Honestly the only site I ever experience those on is here on TF. Specifically in the classifieds. It's very consistent.
