When those huge ones pop up on the phone, you don't even read them because you're madly scrolling towards the edge to close them. Kind of defeats the purpose of advertising.

Do the ads have anything to do with refresh page not working? I'm on Safari, latest mac os, and when I refresh a page nothing happens. I have to go out to a different forum and come back in to see it updated.

And in case this is something in mind, I'm happy to pay an annual fee ($30-50 range) to have an ad-free experience.

Twice now one of the ads crashes Chrome here. The fan in the computer starts just roaring and I have to ctrl alt delete fast to close the browser so it doesn't explode like it sounds like it is supposed too. Thought it was just a one off but just happened again. Maybe just a coincidence but can adds or something do that?

Not impossible that a poorly made ad could be using up way too much CPU, if you know which ad it is we can probably report it.

Is there any chance of an Ad-Free Premium subscription?

And have Bingo et al beholden to premium subscribers?

The Flames have a better shot of winning the cup this year.

Are some of the ads playing sound now? I’ve had bursts of loud music and other annoying bits of noise come out of nowhere.

Got a cool auto play video pop up ad on mobile safari today. That was neat and not intrusive at all.

There's a super annoying ad that's a Simpson clip that auto-full screens on my phone. I don't even know what it's for, because I immediately just go do something else when I see it.

I'm on PC (Chrome) and when I go advanced to type out a message if the ads reload, my cursor is removed from the text box. It makes it hard to type for more than say 30 seconds.

Does anyone else get their typing interrupted because an banner ad loads and somehow becomes the prominent ad (or that's my guess what happens). Its not all ads though.

Probably 5 times post it happens. It might be helping get rid of my hunt and peck tying style though.

Ads that load slowly and readjust the page as youíre trying to type or click on something should be banned from existence.
