    This site is extremely polluted with garbage since the re-format. Most of the time, I just close back out and find something else to do - the other half of the time, I pick the wrong thread that shifts on me while all the pop-ups are being disabled. Even when popups are blocked, that doesn't mean that my download speed isn't garbage. Nothing ever gets done to change that, apparently it's supposed to be the user's problem.

    No disrespect, but people really shouldn't have to run add-on's to be fluid for this one site - loading is severely choppy, and I have the same problem through several devices. The site should be making the change to make person's visits pleasant.

    I agree, it's frustrating when admin suggest a band aid and not a cure.

    Just curious are you logged in to the site on the phone? I don't see any of this? Chrome and Firefox both. Iphone either with Safari.

    On the PC Windows 7 Firefox is fine...
    On the Android 7.0 mobile is horrible. Pop up every few minutes.

    Mike knows about this new nonsense. We're all at camaro nationals so he will deal with it when possible. It's an issue with suppressing certain ads and sometimes the wrong kinds get though. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

    Just an observation. I get the pop ups way more often when I try to scroll down a thread before the page is 100% loaded. If I let the thread/page load completely before I touch the screen...I don't get the pop ups.

    That leaves me to wonder if these forced advertisers are sneaking in 'ghost links' onto the web page that you can't see while the page is loading. This could also explain why I don't get them on the laptop...its not a touch screen.
