    can someone tone down the ads?

    I'm on a 7" tablet.
    normally, I stay logged in for days at a time.
    Recently, though, I find im not logged in when I open the forums page.
    I try to log in, but the chevy truck ads are unrelenting.
    Over and over, the ad pops open and blocks almost the entire screen.
    it's a real pita.

    No pop ups here. Firefox browser.

    normal ad amount here. I have been finding myself logged out after only a few minutes though. I've had to log in a quite a few times throughout the night. however it could be the computer.

    I use Tapatalk on my iPad and phone. Not many ads with that.

    Firefox browser w/ ad block plus add-on.
    Firefox will allow you to block any and all ads that you do not want to see.

    I use adblock plus.

    Google it, download it and no ads ever again. Its weird, some of your favorite sites look way different without adds all over the place

    Once you log in the ads disappear. If your tablet doesn't support Firefox or something similar just scroll to get to the log in. The add should stay at the bottom of the screen.

    You are correct - once I get logged in, the ads stop buggubg me.
    Until then, though, the ads cover the input fields, and i can't see what I'm typing.
    It has taken up to 10 minutes to get logged in - I get frustrated and leave for a while.
    Tapatalk is not an option - that thing is almost as annoying as the ads. I want to use a simple browser just like I do on my fullsize computer(s).
    Firefox simply sux - I'm content with the "internet" app, but even chrome didn;t help.

    With appropriate pop-up and ad blockers in your system, you ought to be able to suppress most if not all of such things. Am not on a tablet, myself, but I have no troubles. It's software. Get some that'll to the job.

    But, in the end, the advertising revenue helps keep the forum running. Sort of goes with the territory, with most any forum.

    Haha, I didn't like Tapatalk at first either so I know where you're coming from. But the most recent update really did make it better and easier to use.

    I am plagued by pop up ads as well. The most irritating of all is a small 1.5"X2.0" pop up that makes me sit thru 10 seconds before I am given the chance to opt out. I have voiced my displeasure.

    It's almost funny in that some of these annoying pop ups are the I-594 ads. Is it so important to make a few bucks here that the owners of this forum take money from the Bloombutt crowd?

    Nice going.

    Ditto. Whether I use Chrome or Safari on my iPad I have no issues with pop up adds.
    I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid people. I'm saying remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

    I'm not sure how it works on the internet, but in radio you cannot refuse ads, even from your competitors. Restraint of Trade laws.

    If you all contribute a few bucks, there might be fewer ads.
