Update: we have identified a number of domains that were causing these redirects (some to Badoink, or other apps in the App Store, and some to adult content sites). We also found a number that were displaying overly obtrusive pop-ups, particularly when stumbled on a mobile device.

We've removed those we identified from circulation, but you may find that you still have some "in the pipeline", so we'd recommend that you allow 20-30 stumbles before you might expect clean stumbles (or a sign-out, fully close then restart the app, and sign back in).

Please let us know of any more instances of this problem - it would be *really* helpful if you could let us know where you are redirected to (a page description, or a url - if one is displayed), and - by swiping back (if stumbling on a mobile app) let us know the description of the previous stumble. It would also be helpful to know what topic the stumble was in.

If you don't wish to share this info in public, that's cool - just let us know the details at Account Support - and cite this thread for reference. Thanks!

And thank you for taking the time and trouble to make these reports and for helping us to curate the content that you Stumble. It makes the stumbling experience better for us all! (o:
