    Hi Admins,
    I'm having trouble reading and posting because this new ad banner that follows me as I scroll keeps popping up. I have ad blocker on and opted out of most ads, but it still pops up. It's a big blue obnoxious banner that covers the width of the screen and follows as I scroll, I'm trying to find a way to opt out or turn it off but it keeps coming back, it wasn't here 2 days ago it's new for me. I can exit it out but it comes back when a new screen loads, it's very big and annoying.
    Help? Thanks.
    Lucia

    I have a large ad at the bottom of my screen. And sometimes it takes me to another website with more ads. It's extremely annoying.

    I don't mind the smaller ads to the side or at very top or bottom of the page but they don't move, this one literally interferes with my viewing and writing on posts. Ugh!

    Me too!!

    I'm thinking if people are prone to seizures it could be a problem it's almost like a dang strobe light!! So intrusive!

    Ads don't have to be painful do they??

    I'm not being a baby, it's that bad!!!

    I'm glad I'm not the only one and strangely enough it's giving me the creeps! Like I'm literally itching as I try to read and see this creepy black bar scrolling at the bottom of my screen. I hope it's fixed soon or I'm outta here! Seriously I can't deal!

    Ok I'm glad to know it's not just me lol. At first I thought I may have accidentally clicked on something that was causing these ads/banners to pop up.

    Hey I paid to access this site and the new adds are annoying! Can't you just leave them on the free site?

    They are worse on the mobile site. Hard to avoid when scrolling.

    Admins, are you doing anything to address this issue? We all paid to join so could you at least fix this issue?

    This is awful and annoying. I understand I understand the benefit of ad revenue for the admins, however, is there anyway to make this convenient and less distracting for your paid subscribers?

    I have seen the bottom banger on my phone for the past few days. I thought it was just my phone but I'm glad to see it's not.
    May I add that the banner and ads look cheesy and cheap? :look: Case in point
