Mumsnet banners at the bottom of pages (another complaint sorry)

I nearly always use my mobile for MN and when banners like this appear they mean half the page is taken up with stuff. Plus there's no way to get rid of the banner (I don't want to click on it because that would make you think I liked it), and the same banners come up repeatedly when I'm logged in.

I know Tech are trying to have a clear out at the moment but it would be really, really lovely if you could put an opt-out in Customise or a big helpful cross to remove the banner on the mobile site? Please?

Hi Empress - which phone are you using?

Snap spectacularly annoying on my kindle fire, once the keypad is up all you can see is the banners which are repetitive boring and for me pointless. Can't even see what I am typing!

I agree - they're taking up too much space and making it much harder to take the discussions in properly. I'm on iPhone 5. In fact I've stopped using mn quite so often on my phone because they annoy me too much! shock

Try clicking where the x should be - suggested on another thread and it worked for me.

The banner is occasionally making my quick links bar at the bottom disappear entirely (not sure what it's called, the one with icons for Active, Watching, etc). I'm using chrome browser on an android phone.
