    I think you should remove it entirely, because it doesn't seem to work. It just breaks links.

    I'm a TCF Club member, and I got redirected to the viglink site today.
    I saw that other people have been getting ads - is this broken as well?

    Sometimes when browsing the forums with Firefox my browser freezes and locks, says I have the "Zeus" virus and to call a number. I know it's a scam so I just shut down the computer and restart but does this have anything to do with this Viglink? Has happened multiple times, only when I'm using Firefox.

    I am a TCF Club member and Viglink is still in the loop for me.

    It seems to vary. I was getting Viglink for a day or so then it stopped. I haven't had it happen in a month or so. But you, and others, are still reporting it as TCF members.

    Even when I tried it without an adblocker it was broken. I ended up at Viglink with no way to get where I was planning to go. Why an ad service would try to intercept news articles is incomprehensible. There is no chance to redirect me to purchase something at a different site instead of where Viglink thinks I was going. There was no purchase involved at all.
