Ads Popping up at Bottom of Screen
« on: December 29, 2016, 07:56:11 PM »
Is anyone else getting ads at the bottom of the screen (Ford) making it hard to read comments?

MOD NOTE: As far as I know, there shouldn't be any pop-up ads on the forums. I'll let admin know.

It seems to be a mobile thing, at least for me

Yup. I fell off my chair when an ad for a financial planner popped up repeatedly on my not-an-iPad thingy.
I did it! I have a journal!

Not only am I seeing ads... some of them are audio/video ads. Right now I've got Ice Cream ads... see below.

ETA... and one for Lancomb Paris Makeup after I posted this...

Mode Note: Normal display ads at the bottom are normal, unless you have ad blocker on. They shouldn't be Pop-ups or be auto playing audio or video as far as I know. I'll look into it.

There was an ad yesterday that was forcing my screen to scroll all the way down--it made it almost impossible to post replies until I closed the ad (there's an "x" in the corner to let you do that sometimes)! I'm sorry, I can't remember what the ad was and I'm on my own computer now, so my adblocker is hiding it.
Kerowyn's musical reference wins the prize for top post today. As in overall, for the whole internet.
