    How long are you on the website for when this happens? I'm going over ads but I don't see anything that would cause this problem but there are 1,000's of ads to go through.

    I went ahead and turned off all ad-networks except 1. I'll try to narrow down which company is at fault. Let me know if it's still happening.

    I have a hard time knowing if an issue is fixed or still happening if the people who reported the problem don't come back.
