Is there a way to block certain ads from constantly appearing, in the same way as you can on Facebook?

I am currently constantly seeing that Ebay ad, with the down-with-it girl/woman showing me her mobile phone screen with Ebay on it, innit. I am fast developing the urge to slap her, it's so annoying! And when it appears several times on one page angry angry

It used to be the chocolate biscuit, constantly, now this!

How do we get some variety?

And am I right in thinking that these ads would still be there with Premium?

These ads which appear within a thread are the most annoying, surely you should be able to opt out of these with Premium?

Hi @IsolaPribby thanks for reporting. Please can you provide a screenshot and hopefully we can get to the bottom of this for you? flowers

Hi @IsolaPribby thanks for the screenshot. We'll take a look. Here's a link to the benefits of premium which does include fewer ads: flowers

But Premium still includes the most annoying ads, which are the ones which show mid thread!

Install adblocker. That sorts them out. (Sorry MNHQ)
