    What's up with those new ads?

    Since yesterday they're popping all over obscuring forum view

    I just logged in with MS Edge (that doesn't have any ad blocking software) and saw the large popup and footer/banner ad two times each. That is pretty normal when the ads are running.

    In theory, I shouldn't see them again for 24 hours.

    uBlock gets them.. I quit using Adblock Plus as it has a white list is my understanding for those willing to pay to be on it. Could be wrong though.

    At least for members these ad popups are not acceptable.
    I understand ads being displayed on any empty field of the page but ads covering forums content are totally unprofessional.
    I'm very close to: "I'm sorry but I'm out of here until this issue is resolved".

    The ads have been here for years. Not sure why you are just now seeing them.

    And, you should only see them two times in a 24 hour period. Are you seeing them more than that?

    uBlock blocks them 100%. Maybe its time to upgrade.
