    Every once and a while when I go to the Orchids Forum website from my favorites bar (on my iPhone), it redirects me to a scam page. It usually is something about my phone having a virus and needing me to authorize a new App Store download to fix it. Just now, a few minutes before I wrote this, I had to close the page and start again three times because scam pages kept coming up. Have other people had problems like this on their mobile devices? It isn't any real problem just more of an inconvenience at times. I only post this because it seems to be occurring more frequently. Thanks for any help!

    I would bet that it has nothing to do with this forum, and all to do with the wi-fi connection.

    IT happens to me too. Only on this site.
