    Yep, it is annoying but the upside still outweighs this downside.

    I noticed this too today. Adds everywhere, top, bottom, in the middle of posts. WTF?

    Vacuum cleaners, birth control, logistics support for my "warehouse", kids bicycles, rental assistance, insurance coverage...

    None of those I need and none of those have I searched. Jeez!

    I used the same “old” version, not sure there is a new version, as i have since day one and no adds. I use the mobile (iphone) with Adblock Plus installed and never have had adds after Adblocker Plus.
    I’ve never used a PC only phone. Not sure this helps but that’s my experience.

    Same here. Started today. Can’t read a post because ad’s are embedded in the post. Down the sides, at the bottom. I love this place but If I have to deal with all of this I’ll be gone as well. I just had an ad pop up in my own post while I was typing

  11. I have an add blocker but all the popups and advertisements interfere with my use of the site. I’ll try to get another blocker tonight, but it’s crazy as it is.

  13. Never had a problem with ads until today. They went crazy and are blocking forum content now. Something must be done. It's a struggle to try and work around these new obstructions.

    Try to clear cookies and cache. Then, when you visit the site again, probably you will get the following
    upload_2021-4-7_21-51-2.png
    Go to Manage Settings, and then Reject all, Save and Exit.
    It worked for me.
    Edit: you will probably need to log in again keep in mind.
     
  15. Management needs to deal with this. Much of the forum content is now blocked with ads. I used your formula but it didn't work for me. What has changed ??

    Annoying? Yes. But consider for a moment that SOMEBODY is spending their time and money to create, maintain run our little happy gathering place here at FL. Selling ad space is nearly EVERY website's way of covering their costs so WE, the users, don't get constantly solicited to contribute to help support the site. We all buy, sell and trade here, but unlike Ebay, the site gets nothing out of the deal. Speaking only for myself, I think it's a bit of a first-world problem to deal with annoying ads, so long as I get to hang out with many fine folks and discuss geeky things like the zippers on an A-2 jacket, or the correct sweatband in a fedora! Let's all check our pulses and take a sip of 75 year old single-malt, then approach this from a civilized angle. Really not a huge deal in the grand scheme of things.

    Please send me a sample of this 75 y.o. Single malt you are sipping and I will gladly partake with you.
     
  18. What, fiver ?? I think the members on this forum quite understand the need for some ads but these new ads that started today are covering up and blocking some forum content. Much more than just 'annoying'...or haven't you noticed ??

    Seems to be working in incognito mode... I don't think it's a matter of ads, it's their placement that's wrong
