Whats up with the cookies thing at the bottom all of a sudden?
Hello, due to the new GDPR EU laws, we have to ask for your consent to show you targeted ads. The popup is not an ad, it's just asking for your permission. Once you agree, we never bother you again (or until you clear your cookies). This is a new standard on all websites who show advertisements to comply with privacy laws.

I'm wondering as well..
Same explanation as above.

I understand. Been using NT for nearly a decade so I have no issue obliging this on desktop where ads aren't nearly as annoying as mobile which forces navigation to new tabs or opens to some junk app on your carriers store.

my question is, do you guys receive kickbacks just for ads being viewable on the screen, or are they still reliant on unique clicks?

I'm on Android, BTW. Every time a click on a thread. Already deleted cache, cookies. Had to install Firefox just to be able to post this without getting a redirect :smh:
Thanks for your report. We're sorry that happened and we take serious action against such any types of ads that would do that. Please continue to report to us if you still see the redirect happen to you. We appreciate your help!
