just notice half way through a thread in-between two posts an ad for groupon [yuck] mnhq no come on I think you have enough ads now!

Yes, I've just come on to moan about this.

For example, first thread I Opened today was a very sensitive thread in relationships. Two or three posts in there is an ad for bloody Groupon in the middle of the thread in between the responses - it looks terrible, and whilst I'm not usually one to have a grumble about changes (and have stuck to classic in silent protest wink), I really think that this is a step too far.

Ok now you're taking the piss, there's one on here confused

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Ad Block Plus.

where? i see no ads in the middle.
i have in built ad blocker - my brain just doesn't see them

AnyFuleKno Mon 22-Aug-11 20:40:41

On mobile or normal version? I cant see them

LoveBeingAtHomeOnMyOwn Mon 22-Aug-11 20:43:23

Mobile , no really, you can't see them?

MrsPlesWearsAFez Mon 22-Aug-11 21:15:18

It's on the mobile version, therefore can't ad block.

RunningOutOfIdeas Mon 22-Aug-11 21:27:35

I don't like these ads either. Is it only on the mobile version?

MrsPlesWearsAFez Mon 22-Aug-11 21:33:32

screenshot here for those of you who haven't had this wonderful experience yet.

Seems like it may only be on the mobile version, which I use far more often than the desktop as I MN on the go.

They are annoying me (have adblocker on computer but not on phone). Please get rid of them.

AtYourCervix Mon 22-Aug-11 21:50:34

that is shit and very much netmumsesque.

redlac6 Mon 22-Aug-11 21:53:24

I agree that they are shite. Please get rid.

SomethingBlue Mon 22-Aug-11 21:55:41

I was also shock at this. They're crap, and very disruptive.

Glad it's not just me. Really not good.

Ah didn't see them on laptop now on the phone I have ads. I don't like them and I never click on anything like ads on my phone.
If I wanted to sign up for offers or buy something I DEFINITELY wouldn't do it on my phone where I'm not sure how secure it would be.
I reckon a lot of people would be the same. There are already ads on full version mn (not mobile) which people will click on if interested.
Ads on mobile version is surely pointless and takes up extra space on the already tiny screen.

They've been bugging me today too.

Yes, totally shit. I appreciate MNHQ have a biscuit bill to pay but this is a bridge too far IMO angry
