    The last few times I've searched for Orange Islands directly in google (accessing the site from a work computer) and attempted to use the link, it's been giving a redirect to a sketchy site of some kind. Tried on two different computers so far, I'll test on some more soon.

    The link ends up going here instead (Don't click on it just to be safe)

    Do we have Google Ads? A *ton* of sites I'm on have that use those ads for revenue have been victim of a string of recent bad ads that redirect you to fake and malicious sites.
