All those adverts that are taking up about a third of my screen, for things like 10 short marriages, 10 expensive divorces, what are they actually selling? Who are the people in them? Am I supposed to care about them?
Most of all ....How do I stop the adverts?

It's just click bait ads to make you click through to another website, the only way to get rid would be with an adblocker

Hi Ada,

Thanks for flagging this. Can we ask what device you're using to access Mumsnet? Could we also steal a screenshot from you, so that we can show our adops team the problem?

I’m on an iPad with Safari Lorna thanks for replying! gin

They have an icon to click for Ad Preferences, but when I open that, l get a message saying my device is blocking third party cookies but if I enable cookies 🍪 that will help them limit the ads they send me!
That seems like counter productive to me so I’ve not done that.

Thanks Ada - it is the first, so I'll definitely take the gin! grin

Can we have a screenshot of the ads you're having issues with? Sorry to be a pain, it'll really help our ads team

I'll read up how to do that Lorna. fsmile
