I have found that a weakness in the Safari program is being exploited by fishing scammers using Ipads. And so I would ask the Administrator to contact the website and discuss whether this site has been compromised and/or remedial steps can be taken.

If not, then I would advise NO ONE to use this site with Safari on Ipads and Iphones!

Symptons: After I use the site with Safari on my Ipad a message pops up asking me to "click here" to win something. This is an obvious fishing scam to steal personal data. So what I do immediately is go to Ipad Settings, then Safari and delete website data and history. (This is the recommended solution found on Google but it only works until the next time I go to the colgate.sports forum. This pop up does not appear after any other program I use.)

Please let us know what you find is the best course of action. Otherwise, we might as well consider a more secure blog platform for future use.

Go 'gate!

Reporting the problem apparently worked as I have not seen these pop ups in the past few days. Great!

Go 'gate!
