    What the heck is with all the ads popping up in all the forums. Even seen some as attachments along with members pictures/attachments that they have posted.

    I use Google Chrome browser with Disconnect plugin and haven't noticed any pop-up ads or unusual postings like you mention.

    I am using Chrome, maybe these adds are supposed to be there? Paid advertising?

    Ok, now I see what you were referring to but apparently with the Disconnect plugin, I just see a blank space in those Ads Master posts:

    We have google ads as well as ads that we offer due to no one wants to support our forums. If you want the site to stay free we need them.

    I understand snowmobile related adds but trying to lower my house payment?
    Seems like many adds recently of nothing related to snowmobiling.
    Yes we need everyone to step up with a VIP membership for sure.
    Guess I will just scroll on by like the Facebook adds.

    Google Ads are usually driven by what you do or search on the Web. So the ads you see that are totally not sled related are kind of your fault.:p

    Yes I have had the adds between the posts for quite some time now and just figured it as a needed thing to keep this site going financially!

    But now the google adds are on top of the threads of a post. So I can read the OP post, but once in that post the threads are all hidden under Google Adds, and this part is new as of this past week for me.

    I cannot even read this post whereas adds cover everything except the OP posting!

    My above post is what I see from your response Mr. Sled!

    This is with an IPad an now Google Chrome as browser.

    I do understand that algorithms control our “what is watch adds” through any browser or url site, but this is now at a point that the site is becoming unusable for me at this point.

    Any idea how to make my situation better?
    Thanks!

    I may not be able to read a response so I will also email you for answer, if any.

    I have noticed the same on my Android tablet. A temp fix is to refresh the screen and it seems to reshuffle the ads usually uncovering the posts that were covered. Unfortunately a different post might now be covered.
