It’s not bad enough having ads showing up disguising themselves as part of the questions, they had to take away the back-to-top button too?

Grrrrrr.

    Are you getting pop ups? Or just seeing the ad at the top and bottom of the screen? 

    I have not seen any pop ups.

      I thought that’s what they are, “pop-up ads”.  Yes, as of this morning, there are ads at the top, bottom, and middle of the screen. They are interspersed with questions, so at first glance, it seemed as if they were graphics submitted by the member as part of his or her question. On closer inspection, I realized that they were ads.
      If they’re technically not pop-ups, I wrote that incorrectly.

    A pop-up ad actually pops up a new window of its own. 
    But yes there are new ads.  Top, bottom and middle.

    Sometimes there's an ad at the top of the screen, but I haven't seen them elsewhere.

      I don’t know if the reason I’m getting a different view than you are getting is that I’m using an iPhone.

    Possibly,  For some reason, what you see on an iPhone and what you see on a laptop screen may be different.  Right now, I'm trying to get the image of someone's butt crack out of my head.

    Randy, I was just on Rosie's Corner and I see what you meant about the ads in the middle of the questions there, but not on the main questions.  If they ae in the middle of the question blocks, I will deal with it, but when they begin to pop up while I'm reading the questions or comments thereto, I'm not going to accept that.

    I sorely miss the "back to top "button.  

    You mean you didn't post the question - "how do I go about picking my scabs with...out using Gillette's new and improved scab picker 5000... just a sandwich? This post was edited by Shuhak at February 20, 2021 3:01 PM MST

    “The Scabby Razor Sandwiches 5000” is now the name of my new band. 

     

    :(

    Not sure which is worse, the scabby razor ad or the stop wiping your butt with toilet paper ad showing someone's butt crack being squirted with water.

    I have been using 'Ad Block' for years and they all disappeared. (Sorry JA.)

    Funny, but when I just opened this site, the top add was for Ad Block. :)  I think perhaps it's time for me to do the same.  Do they charge for that?

    I just opted for the 7 day free trial.  Let's see if it's worth $40 a year after the free trial. This post was edited by SpunkySenior at February 20, 2021 8:21 PM MST

    Ad Block Plus is free - I use it but  I am now seeing these ads at the top of the page, but I was able to go to AdBlock + and then reload the page to make them disappear. I possibly will have to do that each time.

    I'm not sure what I chose, but there were no ads at the top of the page when i just came on here.  We'll see what happens after a week.  Thanks.

    It was free when I started using it and they have not charged me anything so far. Maybe they grandfathered it.

    I'll see what happens after a week.  So far, no ads here.  I do miss the page up button, though.

    The ad I just got at the top was a lump of earwax on a paper towel. I wish I was joking. I gagged a little.

    YES, that is a particularly disgusting ad.

    Those are exactly the kinds of ads I don't want to see.

    I like these ads, especially after reading what ads others are getting. They get earwax and butt cracks and I get bras and pretty rings lol.
