p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Video ads forcing themselves to top of browser


Using Chrome for my browser and sometimes some of the video ads force themselves to the top making it really hard to read a thread as it shifts to the ad quite a lot. Anyone else notice this? Is there a setting I can change to prevent this?

No, there is no setting I know of that will prevent that from happening. Get an ad blocker that works with Chrome. I'm using AdGuard and Better. I'm on Mac iOS and Mac OSX Sierra with Safari and I am absolutely without any of that damn advertising crap and its associated ^%$&*(

I usually don't mind some ads, even like some relevant ads. But this intrusive behavior pushes me to install an ad blocker. I hope Fred can re-consider having such annoying force feeding ads, in the end when more people install ad blocker or simply leave the site, there will just be less ads clicking.

Anyone found any good ad blockers? I've installed a few but so far these really annoying RedBaron video ads just keep coming up and making reading the forum a PITA.

If too many FM members block ads, the site will cease to exist.

This is a "Google Ad" and it only shows for some members. (Depending on browsing history, location, etc.)
Most sites use Google Ads and it's not anything different here at FM.

If you can give me the full URL of this ad, I am able to block it. (Please send me a PM)

Thank you,
Fred

There were some new options in the Google Ads Admin page and I was able to disable video ads and other annoying animated types. Please let me know if this fixed it.

Blocking all ads on FM is detrimental to the site. Thanks for your support,
Fred
