Ads ads ads!!!

What is with the trillions (slightly exaggerated) ads all over this site now? I get little things popping up with videos, "suggested content' or it'll completely pull up a whole new page altogether...this is just a little bit ridiculous :(

Get ad blocker in your browser. Works perfect for me even blocks the ads at the beginning of youtube videos.

You shouldn't be seein "pop ups" if you are logged in. Can you take a screenshot of the ad next time and click on it to get the URL? If its something we can block, we will send it in.

Thanks,

Hi,

Thank you for sending that link along. I have sent this over to our ad ops to get them to make sure that they block that site.

Cheers,
Sheena
