Do you find the ads that keep popping up on your screen annoying?

Most of my posting involves the ads superimposed over replying to a posters input. Just as I type the ad comes on over the words and the box to type in the numbers to post the comment where I can't see the numbers to place in the neccessary box. Or at times when I'm about to hit the comment box-there comes the ad. I think Topix should reassign those ads to appear "out of the way" to use the forums.

That "DAMN" Train (CSX) is getting obnoxious!!!
And I have to keep the volume on mute.
Two things I shouldn't have to put up with IMO!
It only happens on Offbeat!
I hope they're getting paid plenty for me to-have-to put up with this bullshit!

Me to! Having ads I understand. When the damned things go over what you're working on then its an intrusion on communicating. I was just hitting the "post comment" box as an ad appeared so up comes the ad. When I hit the. X on the ad I get that "incorrect characters". When I reenter new numbers the same ad comes up and have to go through the same routine several times just to get one post placed. I'm doing this on a cell phone that has touch screen. Your finger is the mouse. Key board is small and you have to be careful not to hit 2 keys at a time and can hit other options not wanted.

Why do they troll me? Because they hate when I point out the truth to them.
Absolutely! They are angry when feed the truth. Then do that multiple personas as if many are with the same views. Keep posting truth. It always stands strong.(

Thanks. I'm surr they use rral posters IDs. Some guy from Germany began to post under my name so I simply stated "ID theft"and those familiar with my style knew I had an imposter. Of course I'm not the only one trolls have used. Sorry, I'm not sure what parade you mention.

This should stop the pop up ads. Don't know if it works on devices other than PCs.

like I said in the beginning of this forum, we all understand the reason for ads. The problem is where those ads are placed on screen. I'm doing this from a smartphone. Those ads appear over what I read and/or about to key in the numbers to get your post up is blocked from sight. And usually at the moment to hit the "post comment" box only to have the ad take the whole page. When I hit the X to delete the af it comes right back on! We still see the ads if placed out of the way of entering a post.

ad blocker and flash blocker add-ons take care of most of that annoyance. not all ads are blocked, but the obnoxious ones are.
