[Resolved] Ad Countdown

I'm not sure if this is considered a missed ad or just one I'd like rid of but here:

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/reviews/electric_guitars/ibanez/rg370dxgp2/index.html

That (usually) redirects you to:

https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/components/interstitial/view?ad_type=127&section=reviews&url=https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/reviews/electric_guitars/ibanez/rg370dxgp2/index.html (this is the redirect from the link)

As you'll see, there is a 15 second countdown before continuing to what you're trying to see and half the time, it just takes me to the homepage and completely omits where I was 'trying' to go. Huge inconvenience at 15 whopping seconds. 5 seconds is something but 15 nearly drives me away from the site completely.
 
Code:
ultimate-guitar.com#%#AG_onLoad(function() { var left = document.getElementById('time_left').innerHTML; if (left) { document.getElementById("go_back_link").click(); } });
i have no better idea

Can't reproduce as I don't get that redirect. Which browser and filters are you using and from which country do you connect to the site?

Only when I click on the redirected link it shows.

Responsible script is:
Code:
tag.bounceexchange.com/1581/i.js
Please note it is possible there is an exclusion like @@||bounceexchange.com in one of those rules like "Peter Lowe's, Adblock Warning, Fanboy+Easylist Merged" as in Spyware filter the required rule "||bounceexchange.com^$third-party" is included. Therefore please check if you have rules for "bounceexchange.com" in the filter lists and disable any with @@ at the start.

I've noticed this for a good while now, and I can reproduce the ad countdown/redirect every day.

The rule posted above works great though - bypasses the countdown nicely. ;)
