    We have had a couple of reports via feedback of the site redirecting to a comedy video site intermittently. This could be an ad, and we would like to prevent this happening - it is not our policy to serve pop-ups or redirecting ads - so if you are a non-sub member, have you experienced this?

    I am, and I haven't. But I do have FF set up to block pop-ups, so that may have prevented it.

    I keep winning an Apple IPad. I am redirected to this address almost every time I play. Is it possable to remove this.

    I get this on my Android device all the time, and I'm not using the RedHotPawn site at all. I think it comes from Google Ads.

    Have you got one spare for me then? Come on, spread it around man.

    No redirects for me. I use my home pc mainly. I occasionaly (how do I spell this?) log in from my Nokia C3-00 and not experiencing anything out of the ordinary.

    PS C3-00 has Opera Mini as Browser.

    I am in the same boat as Richard with FF and PU blocker. Maybe the way forward!

    Using FF. Pop-up blocker was active when this happened. Just went in now and restricted cookies to that specific site and it hasn't yet happened.

    HOWEVER, it seemed to happen while I was using the "Wait For Move" feature. Will engage that feature again and see if it happens.

    Happened again. Not using the "Wait for Turn" feature but as I was navigating to my next game. Pretty annoying.

    YES, I'm here to report it, I'm on a mac running lion 10.7. Half the time I come to redhotpawn, I get re-directed to cracked.com, or maybe it's crackle, sorry, I just hit my return button and it takes me back but there doesn't seem to be anything I can do to stop it. I've cleared my cache and cookies, and reset my browser, (safari) sometimes I think it's my mouse/pointers fault as it floating over your top banner ad.
    But I never have clicked anything before it redirects. Good luck fixing this problem and thank you for the site. It's great.

    I have experienced this frequently on my iPod touch using the safari browser. I get redirected to crackle.com, and cannot get back using the back button. It's very annoying.
