Advertising that interferes with the content Quote | Reply

I am constantly getting Choice Hotels ads that actually prevent me from seeing the text of what I am trying to read or type. The ad scrolls with the screen so the only way to access what is below it is to sequentially refresh until a new ad is presented that doesn't intrude. This really sucks.

You may have adware that needs to be cleaned.

Or, it could be a pop-up that can be blocked if you use Firefox and supplement it with Ad-Blocker. (But it may be something the site techies can address.)

Or you could just surrender to the inevitable and stay at a Choice Hotel.

In reply to:
they have said they are allowing 'roll over' ads

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far far away, those types of ads would never have been allowed here...

I love AdBlock Pro.

Screenshot attached.

I see this several times a day - just have to refresh a page a few times and it will show up.

Set Hide "My Stuff" Menu: to Yes under settings and you won't even get the side ads.

Only drawback is you have to click on Home to logout.

Still no action on this file. Really fucking annoying.

I'm still getting them too. Every few ads is one of them. They look exactly like the screenshots already posted to this thread - but here's a couple more for you anyway. Smile

I notice it looks like a Canadian ad - I wonder if it is only being served to Canadian IP addresses? That might explain why you don't see it, but I see it every few page refreshes.

I see them all the time.

The ads seem to rotate based on time, not on refreshes. If I see that ad (or any other ad) and hit refresh right away, it reloads the page with the same ad. I can hit refresh a bunch of times and still get the same ad. If I wait a minute or so and hit refresh, I get a different ad.

A few minutes later it will be back. I normally get the ad several times in one session. I can come back for another session later in the day and see it several times again. I haven't counted, but it shows up every few page views.

Still there - I just saw another one. Frown

Edit: Make that two more, within a couple minutes of each other.

Deleted my cookies. Got another of those ads after only a few minutes of browsing the forums.
