What's with the milk advert that squishes everything to one side?

The site is starting to be incredibly intrusive advert wise at the moment. We had the pop ups that covered most of the screen and now we have a purple milk one that takes up the top and the side shock

Give it time and I won't be able to read a thing on here bar ads!!

Sorry HQ but this is an absolute pain in the arse.

I know you've got advertising revenue to consider but this is really getting on my tits. Please make it stop!

I just got it too. Very annoying.

Just came on to say the same. MNHQ, it makes the site unusable. Get rid!

hatsandbagsandshoes Sat 26-Nov-16 15:00:47

Ooh, just got it too. Very annoying!

TheCatsWhiskers Sat 26-Nov-16 19:42:00

Me too. I understand that advertising is required but lately it's made me go to another site

And me! Are you kidding me HQ!

I had this earlier, and couldn't get rid of the fucker.

This keeps happening with pop ups too. Not only getting in my nerves, I'm not wanting to come on as they're so fucking annoying angry

HQ have said on another thread that that advert is deliberate and meant to be there, though should only appear once a day.

Uggh! It's super annoying. I know that you have to make your money somewhere, but surely let us read posts without being squashed out by milk

I make a point of NOT buying anything from intrusive ads so it's a complete waste of time and money

Install ad blocker. It's free. And you can enjoy MN ad free!

I'm sorry, MNHQ. I know you need to take advertising to generate revenue to keep the site going. But you've really crossed the line recently with intrusive executions.

I had it earlier, i could barely read nor type. Bloody milk - who do cows think they are?

MrsGsnow18 Sat 26-Nov-16 21:50:22

I had it earlier too confused I agree with previous poster and avoiding products with annoying ads! That milk has made my list!

Go vegan!


MyCatIsABiggerBastardThanYours Sat 26-Nov-16 22:33:19

What the bloody hell made MNHQ think it would be a good idea to make the screen even bloody smaller on mobile.

I am hoping it's a mistake.

I am definitely installing ad blocker now.

Mumsnet is getting eaten alive by milk adverts....

It's going to become like the free local paper isn't it, a small bit of text in the centre surrounded by almost a page full of ads.

Hi all,

So sorry about this! We're flagging with our ads team and will let you know once we have some more info.
