Intrusive Ads

# 65 Do you get them too? They’re really annoying… Mainly because when they come up, they would cover a large portion of the page. I got a really huge one before that covered like half of the page I was on... The one in my screenshot was an example; the ad was like a long column covering part of the discussion I was trying to read. As you may see, it prevented me from reading the entire discussion properly. Not only had the intrusive ad made it hard to read, but it was hard to interact as well when it showed up... Oh well, just one of those things I have to put up with when I choose to myLot, I guess…

I don't think I've ever seen them on myLot, but they can be annoying when I encounter them on other sites.

I understand they're not supposed to do that on here so I told admin about them and hopefully they will be gone soon.

@sishy7 I hope so. If it's not supposed to happen, I'm sure they'll do something about it.

@Gina145 Now that I see only a few of us are affected, I'm beginning to wonder if the problem is really from my end...

I definitely was confused at first before I found out how to get rid of it... Now I know I can just refresh the page and it will be gone... Still very, very, very annoying though!

Yes, they are! They cover a huge part of the screen and make it impossible to read or type.

I don't know... Most here don't seem to get them, I'm starting to think it is triggered by my own browser setting or something...

@ridingbet It happened again not too long ago... Yeah, maybe the problem is from my end... Not sure what, maybe combination of browser settings and operating system...

I may have a blocker I am not sure, I have not seen them or maybe I did not pay attention.

You know, I haven't seen them right now or some 16+ hours since I posted this discussion. I'll give it a few more hours and if I still don't see them perhaps it was taken cared of.

I haven't gotten them here, but most definitely on other sites . . . argh they are annoying! And sometimes when I need to go back to these pages, I forget I'm not supposed to hover over certain areas that make that happen - and there it is again . Those should be outlawed!!

So far there is only one other member who says she gets them too... Glad it happens to perhaps just a minority here; still, it seems to never should happen at all...

It hasn't been happening too often lately, but it's not completely gone either... It comes back once in a while, and I just refresh the page to make it disappear so I can navigate the page properly...

I haven't had one yet. I'm hoping it doesn't happen, as I even tried to figure out what is under that picture. It would frustrate me.
