These ads are WAY too aggressive!
Posted by 195X on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 11:03 AM

I understand the need to advertise but, these ads you can't click them off, you go NEAR them with your cursor and they enlarge! WON'T go away, even when you click the giant, black X! This is getting a bit ridiculous.

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

Download an ad-blocker to your browser - I did - no more ads. Just Google "ad blocker" & download the one that looks safest. I've never understood why the ad-agencies can't figure out that their ads can cause a negative effect in people rather than the positive effect that they are trying for.

Well that was a massive fail. What blocker are you using?

I am using Easy Ad Blocker, but there are others depending on what device/browser you are using (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Android, etc.). I got it from the Chrome Web Store, look at - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/easy-adblocker/gginmiamniniinhbipmknjiefidjlnob

Try uBlock. One of the fastest and most effective I've run across. Works better for me than my old standby AdBlock Plus.
