I know everyone's gotta monetize their site, but jeez . . .!

These new pop-up ads in the text of posts are driving me bonkers. I have more often than not simply stopped trying to read a post because it has become impossible. And the same ones just keep popping up over and over, with no x-out option. Is anyone else seeing them? Is it just my iPad? Is there a setting i can use to block or move them? I don't mind the ads on the side banner, or even the old pop-ups, but these new ones make me want to move the conversation elsewhere.

Use weblock on the iPad. I just had to reactivate mine because it was driving me nuts, too. So far, so good!

Thanks for the tip as they drive me bonkers as well.
Is that a setting or an app?
Thanks

BTW- if you tap somewhere else on the screen, it does pop off until you hit the next web mine

It's an app, and I think it was free. I've had it for a while, so I can't remember.

I only get those on an i-device- not on my android. They are super bothersome on a small screen because you can't help but hit them when you scroll.

I bought the ap -- it was $1.99 and I think it will be worth it -- but too stupid to get it to work. Time to call for IT backup. Thanks for the info, tho.

Have you ever looked at the text that gets embedded into your post to create those pop ups? I have deleted a message and started over rather than trying to edit a post with all that in there.

Thanks! I hate those stupid popups. I constantly click by accident and they cover the pats so you can't read them. I've downloaded the app, so far so good!

Agreed. They are completely annoying and make me not want to visit the site as much. I would consider the adblocker but $1.99?? Just not that motivated...
