I have just yesterday suddenly found ads popping up on MN. On some threads they are appearing after every comment or reply and seem to be focused on other products or services that I may have looked at on the internet. This is annoying in the extreme as well as a bit spooky. Anyone know how to get rid of these intrusive ads?

Are we all seeing the same ad(s), or do we see ads that google (or whoever) selects based on our individual search history, and somehow tied to our pcs?

What browser are you all using? Mozilla firefox here and no ads whatsoever (even the top banner gets blocked after I sign in). I don't use any added ad-blockers, just standard antivirus (Eset Endpoint) in W8.1.

Prehaps you need to clean your computer from ad-ware or other junk...

I don't see any ads,

except the blonde chick dumping "Larry Swell" and upgrading with "Martin Swan"

How's the wife with that Martin?

Perhaps they know we got no money so they don't bother flooding us with ads....

Swamped with ads between every comment - very trying

I delete them as 'inappropriate' but something else then appears!

I guess you've got some ad-ware infection (in your computer). What browsers are you "add-watchers" using?

I thought I might have deja-vu but this was recently raised in The Fingerboard. An ad-blocker works the trick for me

Clicking an ad only encourages more.

Ignore them.

Clicking an ad also helps pay the site bills.

So there's that.

I was seeing a ton of adds too, but didn't get motivated to do anything about it until an add overlayed the "reply" box, and I couldn't get to the "submit reply" button to post.  Even closing the add didn't work... there was still and "add ghost" that blocked the button.

In the thread Jeffrey linked above, there's a link to an add blocker that worked for me (Google Chrome browser)...

I had the same issue, not able to post (which probably is a good thing) 

The only thing that helped was to install AdBlock extension to Chrome

So now I can post again, so, sorry about that
