Between the annoying and overwhelming ads and the interference from the Riggie moron, Topix is no longer fun, entertaining or useful. I always thought it was in a website's best interest to promote viewership and maximize hits but the obtrusive ads especially do just the opposite. In addition to reducing users, who wants to buy a product from one of the "in your face" sponsors. What marketing genius thinks pissing off potential customers is a smart idea?

Its extremely annoying especially on a mobile device, ever single page you go to HOME DEPOT is there and it makes the page scroll, and when you go to X it out it always makes you inadvertently click another ad, making you repeat the process all over again.. I can understand an ad here and there, but you can't navigate the site for a minute without and ad in your face..

I had the same problem. I now use the Topix app and it is so much better, no pop ups or ads in the threads

+ 1 on AdBlock Plus. It's ridiculously simple and will end your Topix pop-up hell.

First, you should be using the Google Chrome browser -- it's the best out there.

Go to www.chrome.google.com/webstore

Search AdBlock Plus.

You want AdBlock Plus -- not AdBlock.

Click the + Free box.

It functions as a Chrome extension, meaning there's download management or setup. It's literally working in 20 seconds.

Voila! No more annoying pop ups!

Riggie moron? Why? Because you don't like hearing the truth about your area?

Unfortunately, AdBlock Plus does not stop the "Riggie Cretin" or whoever the pathetic worms are.

Feel free not to read. I'm registered now so my posts stick out in blue so if you see them in black it's someone else. I always mean what I say and I say what I mean. Again if you don't like it feel free to ignore.

Not sure what 'back keying' is, never heard of it. But if you read the other posts you'll see it's working for everyone else.

It's better when you can't afford a real computer.
Lets see your computer skills.

That's mobo challenge man again. He can read and remember a few specs but you wouldn't want him on any development team or anything. That's SUNY for you. If that.
