I am having difficulty using this site on iPhone (it’s almost unusable)

the mods (if they exist) should lockdown all banners from the .xyz extension


almost every page here (if I don’t turn off data) tries to load Data from a scam
.xyz or similar site that puts a full screen your phone is hacked nonsense. You can’t exit the screen and have to reset the phone.
iPhone of coarse is garbage in that it won’t simply block all the non .com .net .edu .gov .org

in the past I had all these sites blocked but my phone was reset and I am getting this nonsense again
that I haven’t seen in years,
not sure what changed
also worth noting even after a full setter to defaults these lock screens pop up here on the first visit, I have a current iOS version and it seems others are running into this issue again as well.

I thought most of these interstitial full screen scams were all eliminated but here they are like a blast from the past.

I'm running 13.2 with no probs...

You sure you didn't pick it up from a non-EV porn site?
Nope this phone is locked down and only used for forums/email. I actually have content settings on it to block adult content.

what’s stranger is that it happened right after a full clear and reset on the first visit

I find it strange that it’s only this site that this happened

I just changed the phone settings to only allow specific sites in a list from a limit and block list and now it appears to work fine.

thankfully I use under a dozen sites so the number I had to add was minimal
