Agreed that they are over the top. They cover up places where one types and clicks on other things, and boxes that show forum information, and they show inane pictures that I cannot leave running on my computer in most places. I just started seeing them today. I cannot use the site with these running and I will have to go back to Tapatalk (where no ads will be seen) even when at the office.

We all understand that running the site is expensive and that revenue needs to come from somewhere. But when the ads prevent the use of the forum, it's sorta like a watch that doesn't tell time.

Shows up on safari. On every single page. Annoyed.
Same browser here and it drives me furiously angry, to the point where I have no fun on the forum, it's everywhere, every pages. Worst thing ever.

I dont think this is WUS's fault, they have been trying to deal with it, ive got the same and all of us Aussie users still have ads on the right hand side of the page too covering 1/4 of the page, somehow its only on this website, Adblock does not fix it, but ive been told the Admin is trying to fix it up so thanks to them for being on the case.

Brutal. I thought I'd picked up some malware or something. I get the need to generate revenue etc., but this is trashy, poor, invasive and gimmicky and it takes away from the user experience. [edit: good to hear it's being addressed, thanks]

Ridiculous. What are these things supposed to be advertising anyway?? All I'm getting are what look like stills from a live cam of an insane asylum........

Yes--they have disappeared--Thanks!

I'm not sure the assumption that itw was some form of malware was actually wrong.

I don't know whether Safari on my iPad filters them out or they have been and gone by the time I logged on but everything looks O.K.

I've been logged on all morning here using Safari on my MacBook, and never saw them at all. I'm running AdBlock, which blocks so many annoying ads. Maybe that did it.

I'm on Safari on a Macbook, and I had them for awhile (annoying), but they are gone now. Hooray!
