Every flipping week it's something else- porn pop ups,buzzy tesco ads and now massive adverts which take up half the screen!

Come on HQ, sort it out please!!angry

Aah God yes SO annoying, and really difficult to get rid of.

QueenMortificado Sun 20-Nov-16 20:54:02

JinkxMonsoon Sun 20-Nov-16 20:55:43

Ditto. Have one on this thread right now.

Snap. On mobile site/iPhone. I hadn't had any problem ads before this weekend but now there always seems to be a huge one getting in the way and the site is almost unusable.

Have you posted on the other long running threads just below yours?

Use the Ad Blocker add-on, it's brilliant.

I have had one for giff gaff several times which takes up the entire page and cannot be exited in any way. Am accessing on safari on an iPhone

QueenMortificado Sun 20-Nov-16 21:01:22

Minge what's the name of the ad-blocker app?

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 20-Nov-16 21:04:22

I can't have any more apps on my phone, I only have a few and I'm nearly out of space and I don't want to delete Period Tracker or BBC Weather

zzzzz Sun 20-Nov-16 21:26:29

Yes really annoying one today

MonkeyPoozzled76 Sun 20-Nov-16 21:31:02

Same for me, I'm using an iPhone 6S and I've not had any problems until this weekend when I am not getting massive giffgaff adverts popping up. It takes up around a third of the screen and it's reaaallly annoying. It makes the site unusable.

NewIdeasToday Sun 20-Nov-16 21:44:16

It's awful this weekend. Complete pain. Impossible to view the site.

Monstamio Sun 20-Nov-16 21:46:53

Yes! That damn giff gaff one which you can't get rid of. Massively annoying.

oldbirdy Sun 20-Nov-16 21:56:38

I agree. Piss off with the huge drop down adds that cover the page. In the history of advertising I can't believe that an intrusive drop down add stopping you from reading has ever persuaded anyone to buy that product.

zzzzz Sun 20-Nov-16 22:59:17

And now thisangry

AddToBasket Sun 20-Nov-16 23:01:05

Me too. Had to move to my iPad to read it.

Ilovehedgehogs Sun 20-Nov-16 23:01:18

Ad blocker is not stopping them on my iPhone 6s

Longdistance Sun 20-Nov-16 23:03:43

Oh yes.

FFS! Sort it out.

I've had this the past two days with half the scree taken up. Even when I've filled in the survey to tell them to guck off that I'm not interested, they're still there.

Just some of today's offerings

Catzpyjamas Sun 20-Nov-16 23:08:00

and another one

Warl Sun 20-Nov-16 23:08:07

I use the talk app, I've clicked on the bloody fairy non bio advert so many times by accident that it's my top webpage, pisses me off no end!!

RumAppleGinger Sun 20-Nov-16 23:09:48

Me too. No can't just close the gift gaff one either, have to reload the page. It's very annoying.

TwentyCups Sun 20-Nov-16 23:10:33

Same here!

This needs fixing; what if a giant ad is blocking some of my fabulous advice or ponderings?
