Spam ads from WUS?

So about 90% of the WUS adds I look up on watchrecon lead me to this-

I’ve seen mostly Time Warner but sometimes amazon... you cannot stop them. I have to close out the window completely.

This has to be a bug? BTW I am on an iPhone 7.

Too much monkey porn. It’s infected your device.

I notice this a lot more lately. It seems like a new form of pop up. Would love to know how to stop it.

Happens to me as well. I think it occurs when you accidentally tap on the tiny (or hidden) links on some of the photos.

The site is unusable with the plastering of ads all over the pages. It loads so slowly.

I thought this at one time too- it I’ll be looking at recon and I’ll open up mult windows of watches I like without checking them until I’m done.. minutes later all of the extra windows I open up don’t even have the watch- it’s the stupid spam add. I swear it’s like a virus , it won’t even let you look at the page before it takes over.

Can’t share that with you. It’s all mine.
