For once I’m going to have to agree with Derwood. The full screen ads that just randomly pop up suck, mostly because sometimes it results in the page loading at the top instead of where I left off, so I have to scroll down to get back to where I was.

Are you looking into any of this, Tim?


You just have to X out of it. Let Tim recoup some costs with ads.

The in-line ads on the browser don't bother me at all. The two new varieties of mobile ads are disruptive to using the site.

It's insufferable. I hate them. They are just full page versions of ads that already inline on the page. It's redundant and unneccesary. The targeted ads I get in line, I'll actually click on, the full page ad I'll click out immediately. It's obtrusive, annoying, ineffective, and they suck.

It's also really easy to just click the X and move on to the page.

I noticed an uptick in that too. Not half a dozen times, but a couple times last week.

I just figured that was the standard; the mobile version has randomly logged me off as far back as I can remember.

Or I just can't take a hint.

The full sized ads on mobile don't bother me, but the pro Trump banner ads that I can't report as "not interested in this ad" do bother me.

Not that I suspect Tim has much control over that.

Trump ads are about 90% of what I see in-line on this sight

Can we ban TomTheLazyTolkienReference? Low cost, maximum utility.

I think I got it so that the full page ads on mobile go away.

I wasn't annoyed by having to click the X to dismiss them. I was annoyed that it would sometimes lose which posts had been read and it would just dump me at the top of the page.
