I hope you don't do that. Blocking ads would hurt my ability to continue to maintain this site.
I don't want to hurt the site

I just want to be able to read the first few comments on each post.
I can get some to close  
GeorgeAdams33 : 3/12/2019 10:47 am : link
I'd love to know the secret to getting all of them closed.
They are annoying

Like telemarketers, they don't work and have a negative effect on business when people get annoyed enough to never ever use these products or companies.

George, they are stationary ads within threads... a leaderboard and two box ads on the right. There are no pop-ups or overlays. You might want to clear your history/cache.

Thanks Eric. I'll give that a shot.

This is definitely an issue. Ads shouldn't be covering the content and they always do. Every since that update you guys did it has been bad.

I'm having the same problem -- I tried clearing cache -- I tried using a different browser -- the right edge of the top posts are covered by the right side ad
Nothing works

and it really is fucking ridiculous.

Every God damn thread I cannot read the first few posts because this bullshit just has to be there. Why don't advertisers and telemarketers just quit with anything that just annoys the living shit out of people. When they continually fail to generate business you'd think these assholes would take the hint. Instead they've only gotten worse by resorting to crap that should be flat out illegal. I can't understand how it's legal for telemarketing assholes to use local numbers of contacts to trick you into answering your cellphone so that they can try yet another new way to get their pitch across.
