    Default Interfering Adds

    I can't find the older post complaining about excessive adds but I just had this happen. I've already got an add covering 4" on the right of the screen. Then right in the middle of replying to a post another add pops up next to the right hand one that covers A THIRD OF THE REPLY WINDOW I'm trying to type on. I "X" it out in the upper right and another one appears (same size) asking if I already own this product. It's also blocking the reply window. After a few seconds if finally disappears.
    On Edit: I just got another one after finishing this post and posting it that blocked almost 1/2 of the General Discussion page for a number of seconds.

    Me too and this is new over the past several days I think. And the adds are irrelevant non fishing content. Annoying.

    Yessir S&S, a first for me too, and the add has nothing to do with fly fishing.

    Ads now encroach from the bottom, and from the right. The view of the actual website is getting smaller each day, and it's becoming such a pain in the arse that it makes the experience here on the forum rather unpleasant and undesirable. Sometimes I just give up and log out.

    I don't know, I tried an add blocker years ago and there were negative effects it caused. Can't remember now but it turned out to be more trouble than what it was worth putting up with. Maybe they've improved.

    Yes, they've improved.

    If you do have issues with one, try another. There are many of them to try.

    I use AdGuard, works like a charm.

    Thank you, JAYR, I was going to ask what you recommend. I'll give it a try.

    I just put Adguard on my computer and restarted it. Seems to be working well FWIW.
