About half the time iyn my phone today there had been an ad over the next button at the bottom of threads

There's always next year, or the next, or maybe by the time I'm Chief's age, I guess....

Brock,

 

Is there a way to force these ads to stop loading if they exceed a certain amount of time. It seems that there are some that can crash just about any browser as they hang. It's not consistent, but I have more problems at TD than just about any site I visit.

There are still ads appearing over the reply box about half the time on my phone....I realize some of you may see that as a feature....

Get a screen shot and PM Brock with it or post it here. In the meantime, refresh the screen and it goes away; at least in my experience that's what's happened.

Maybe if you see the ads enough times you will start to come around? :)

Getting treatment for your Major Depressive Disorder* is probably more important than making yet another comment on a website, don't you think? :)

 

* I'm making fun of the intrusiveness of the ad, not of anyone's serious condition**

 

** Sheesh

The ad makes you want to stop and think, hmm, do they know something that I don't?

Out of curiosity, who’s your provider? I got the redirect one that was happening earlier in the week, but I haven’t had one like that in over a year or so. Would the provider even have anything to do with it?

I have Verizon. No idea if the provider has something to do with it or not. The ads covering the comment bubble started happening to me yesterday.

Apparently I'm pregnant, scared, and confused.

 

 

Or the office lady was, which is even scarier given her age.

I'd suspect all of your wives are pregnant, scared and confused.

My wife is convinced that just going to sports' sites guarantees I'll get ads for women. I wonder if that is part of the algorhythm?

 

And, that ad covering the mobile thing that Van posted? That's what I was too lazy to post....though I am nearly always on wifi, not the carrier.

There's always next year, or the next, or maybe by the time I'm Chief's age, I guess....

With the new legislation that holds websites liable for posting ads linked to human trafficking, hopefully we don't get any of the more questionable ones any longer.

So I went from some pretty fantastic russian singles ads, to shoe ads, in the span of a refresh.

 

 

Carole, stay away from my ads!
