Forumosa is infested with spam bots linking to other websites when posting, logging in ... and more.

Perhaps your computer has a virus or something like a virus. I haven't been directed to other websites on here or elsewhere.

Unlikely as I didn't visit porn or downloaded anything suspicious, and I'm using win 10 pro trial, which has build-in virus scanner, malware detector.

Does that on my phone. The temp forum link takes me off to other websites. Also NEW takes me to SIGN IN on my phone and on my laptop.
There are millions of people in the world. And none of those people is an extra. They're all leads in their own stories.

If you lose one sense, your other senses are enhanced. That's why people with no sense of humour have an increased sense of self-importance.

Malware? A rogue extension/add-on on your browser, perhaps? Check your extensions and see if there's anything that doesn't belong.

It gets redirected in China quite often, unless I use a VPN.

Using a VPN (kind of need it to look in China. Flob gets the timeout white page treatment, rather than the 'this site is not available' treatment), about 30% of the time I get the message "socket error No22. Invalid argument." and not just in the religion and politics threads.

Dunno if that's useful info or just falls under the umbrella of 'China internet bullshit we're not going to bother with'.
