Pop-Up Ads! Gr-r-r-r-r!!

I am hating the pop-up ads on this site. The Moen ad is especially bad -- it kicks me off the site every time it appears! The others make it difficult to view threads -- they keep popping in and out and make it difficult to read the posts on the thread. Is anyone else having problems with these annoying ads?

Which browser are you using? Modern browsers have a setting to block pop-up ads. I use Firefox and I also have installed an add-in to block all ads, so I don't see any at all.

AdBlock Plus has an extension that works with most browsers. I've used it for years and see no ads at all.

Thank you GG and Steve! I'm going to try AdBlock right now. It will be a pleasure to come to this site and not see those ads! Thanks, again!!!

I you are on a phone and not a computer, it may not be as easy as downloading Adblock Plus.

All the bl**dy time and Adblock and its relatives are are no use at all!

I'm on Windows 7 (a whole other story) and my IE is up to date.

I can't believe the number of extremely graphical ads on this site, especially considering someone is paying to have this forum online. All that visual junk makes the real board information take forever to load.

Pro Boards forums have a lot fewer ads, none of them are intrusive to the board information, and Pro Boards forums are free!

If you are on a phone or a tablet, you can download the app, which shows no ads at all.

Iphone has an app for Adblock Plus? I looked and found one, but its not free, like the one I use on my computer.
Is it in the app store for free?
