I can't see them on my laptop (thank god for adblock) but I can on my phone.

I can handle ads around the edges of the screen, but not slap bang in the middle of the website. Awful.

Do adverts really annoy people that much?
I don't even notice them TBH, but if it pisses people off, can you not find a nice free or subscription based site where you can give your opinions and argue to your hearts content?

Adblocker is your friend. No annoying Boots advert here grin

Use Mozilla Firefox. Install AdblockerPlus. Like Nelson, I see no ads on any site, any where

If you feel guilty for using the site for free, open up IE, randomly click on a few ads then close the tabs down.

get adblock.

If you want to use MN you have to put up with the advertising too.
That's how you're actually able to take part.
Unless you want some sort of subscription only site?
I'm getting bored with this sort of thread, I enjoy the website but I do expect those that run it and work on it to get paid, or do you think they should all do it for free?

YANBU - will it go after the radio jobby?

God its horrendous. Hopefully not a permanent fixture.

It is very annoying.

Can't see it in the way, but I find the targeted advertising mildly diverting. Thread about wheelie bins? Buy your wheelie bins here! Just read someone complaining about a florist? Why not check them out for yourself?

I thought you just meant the regular adverts down the side of the page not actually in the middle of a thread, haven't seen them yet.

I have a pic of the MN scarf. I was always curious as to what that was and now i know.

Me too!
Anyhow, can't stop. Just off out to Boots to spend loads of money.
Anyone know if they sell Cadbury's Cream Eggs?

YABU, MNHQ have to pay the gin bills.

I don't think they're intrusive or anything, at least they don't bring up a huge menu/picture thing when you hover your curser over them accidentally, now that is fucking irritating.

Yanbu, I was just thinking about starting this exact thread!

I have no idea what you are talking about but you are mighty mad about it aren't you.
