The blog was off the net for almost the entire day and I am not sure why.  However, we are back in operation now it appears.  Let us pray it lasts!

  1. for several days now, I get taken to “spreelpd.com” saying I’m the lucky winner of a shopping card whenever I try to access your site. Brave browser (with built-in ad blockers) allows me to stay on your site without redirection. Malevolent?

  2. If I used my phone’s Samsung’s Chrome browser, I would frequently get a pop up telling me that I was a lucky winner to get a free Amazon gift card. I don’t think it happened on my laptop.
    .
    I use Brave on my phone now, and things seem fine.

  3. I should add this was going on about a year ago for me. Looked at that way, Chrome on my laptop seems to work fine. Brave works on my phone, so no reason to change back to Chrome.

  4. I have not been able to read any topics for about a week because of a pop up that comes up saying I’ve won some kind of prize. I won’t click on the ok button because I know it’s click-bait. It happens on every topic. I tried to open a topic today and it came up again. Is anyone else getting this? I think the only reason I can send this message is that I could read the full message without opening it. I really miss reading!

  5. Yes, I’ve had the “redirecting to something likely malevolent” problem with this website for a while, myself. I assumed it was on my end, and would go through the steps to clean my set up. It would reoccur every once in a blue moon informing me I’ve won a prized doodad (or something to that effect).

    So it’s either this site, or I’m the luckiest man alive.

  6. I had to unsubscribe because of pop-ups. Now, I want to resubsubscribe and I can’t find the link. The pop-ups were from spreedlp.com.
    It was very frustrating.

  7. Well, I can’t find you on Google. I can trace you from links at my own blog. But when I Google, it comes up a host of ‘American’ and ‘Catholic’ options, but not this one. Don’t know if that’s related or not. But typically I can type the Blog name and this comes up on top.

  8. I, too, encountered the pop-ups of winning a prize, either from Amazon, or another was for entering a prize for a $1000 Walmart gift card for using my cell phone in Layton UT and a local cell phone service offering me a better cell phone plan (I had been in NE Utah last week and something attached to the site even through my I-phone). It hasnt affected online computer access.

  9. Right now, I could not get to this blog on a Google search of The American Catholic, but I was able to switch to Yahoo Search Engine and….poof, I am here!!

    I know that I extremely rarely post but I just wanted to let you know what I was experiencing trying to get here to read your blog, which I do every day.

  10. Regarding Karl’s comment that a Google search often does not bring up The American Catholic, “I am sure it is a coincidence” 🙂

    Yes, I noticed that before. Interesting that Yahoo hasnt blacklisted, er, unlisted, Don McClarey/TAC yet.

  11. A google search of The American Catholic blog will get you to us.

    “Yes, I noticed that before. Interesting that Yahoo hasnt blacklisted, er, unlisted, Don McClarey/TAC yet.”

    I regard it almost as a personal insult that they have not done so, yet! 🙂

  12. I got the “congratulations, you’ve won a $1,000 gift card” popup every time I tried to log on to this site with my iPhone. It did NOT happen on my desktop computer, using Chrome.

  13. Hmm. I just tried Google and typed in both the-american-catholic (with hyphens) and the american catholic (no hypehens). The website did not pop up. But typing in either on duckduckgo.com search engine showed it quickly.
    .
    If I type in “the-american-catholic.com” in the Google search engine, then of course it pops up immediately.
    .
    (I’m on my laptop. I have not tried this on my phone’s browsers)
    .
    Net Neutrality in action?

  14. Google works now. But it sure didn’t yesterday. Today you popped up at the top as normal, so that’s fixed.

  15. I have been getting the same annoying redirection/popup as others have described here, on both my iPhone and iPad, for a couple of weeks, on both Chrome and Safari. I’ve seen suggestions online that this is something only your advertisers and/or web host can remedy. In any event, it doesn’t happen when using either Chrome or Edge on my laptop, so that’s where I am now.
