I use Tmobile and Xfinity but this is the only site that does it and its not everytime I come but it does it at least once a day from my phone for the last few days.
About me:
1. GW retail doesn't equal value if you intend to sell me assembled/stripped/primed/painted items. These all devalue them and anyone can get 20-30% off GW retail NIB.
2. If I take the time to write you please be kind enough to at least tell me no or not interested.
3. Lowest reference ships first

everyone quit complaining, you heard Eric, they ran the scan.

*notes about trading with me…
I do not like drawn out deals. Id like to have a deal signed and complete within 48 hours.
I abide by the unwritten rules… lower rating ships first pays first.
I always provide delivery confirmation and expect the same.

I'm also having issues with the website hijacking me when I visit it using Chrome on my phone.

I'm on a desktop computer, running windows 7 pro and Firefox. In the bottom left hand corner I see multiple, as in more than I can count messages saying: Transferring from..., downloading from......, waiting for..., [repeat]
All are ads data or so it appears.
During 'peak' hours, 4-430 till 630-700 pm EDT, the speed is slow. So slow, that sometimes pictures aren't loaded or disappear and have to load again.

I have 2 computers. a desktop and a laptop. both with multiple anti spyware, anti malware, anti virus programs running.
the laptop is running vista pro, and firefox,
Heh, I was called a Grognard. ;-)

Thanks for the vote of confidence. Your faith is so very much appreciated.
:roll:

I guess I'm the only one seeing that it's happening on phones only?
I was just looking at the WGC banner on my computer, and had no issues at all.
[As an aside, the WGC banner is about to go away, anyway. So you don't need to stress that]

Just visited the site on my phone. Refreshed twenty times (20). The WGC banner came up twice. At no time did I get a pop up.

We ARE looking into it deeper to try to find the root cause, but our tech guy had the host scan the site. It's clean.

The not secure icon on the top of my browser has been showing up for a couple weeks. One of my protection programs; I don't recall if it's anti virus, malware or spyware, gives me a pop up and when I log in saying the site isn't secure and my info can be viewed by others.
