Floating Bank advert destroying this site
03 January, 2018 00:40
I realise that this site needs advertising revenue to survive but surely they can get by without accepting ads which block off much of what people write. It is a ludicrous form of advertising & would make me much less likely to buy the product or service. I suppose no one has found a way of getting rid of these floaters?

Just install an ad blocker in your browser



Cheers,

Use the mobile site.

BH - I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser with Adblock Plus on my desk top and the COML site works v well. I use the mobile site on my smartphone [NL1020] and just have one small ad at the base of the screen which dosn't interfere with my reading/posting...

Sounds it may have switched off. I used uBlock Origin, an add on for Firefox Browser. works a treat.

These things are beat stopped at source though. SN seem to allow their site to be infiltrated by all sorts of strange pop ups including fake virus alerts which never appear on my phone except on SN pages. Poorly engineered IT.

I should not need to be an IT expert or install additional software to make a website work
It like buying a car and then having to buy a steering wheel

Iíve just checked & Iím using Crystal adblocker which is still switched on. I take it that the mobile app is for smartphones rather than an I-pad?

I use the mobile application on all devices including the lap top and the floating adverts and pop ups are non existent. You only need the desktop website for prediction league and I come out as soon as I have completed my predictions or looked at the table!

Its pretty poor than SN can't fix this stuff as its been going on for a long while. The mobile version is pretty restrictive in that it won't scale/zoom text on ipad and splits everything into short pages.

I tend to try and view the site around the adverts (annoying) whilst hardening my resolve never to spend a penny with the advertisers on show.

Adblock plus, and no more ads. Highly recommend it.

However, some web site are now recognising that you have an ad blocker installed and then try to restrict what you can view, or make recommendations that you turn it off whilst on their site. I suspect that SN will eventually catch on to this.

At present the Ads on SN are far too unregulated. A couple of years back and before I got Adblock one of the ads was sending a virus to my computer. Luckily it wouldn't run on my Mac.
