    These ads are becoming quite intrusive to the point of taking away what enjoyment we get from this place.

    I’m not sure whether it’s worth continuing the way it is.

    Apart from a banner at the top, I’m not seeing any intrusive ads.

    Yep, that's what I use. Blocks ads in youtube vids too. I don't know how people can stand watching youtube with ads popping up all of the time.

    Again, I see no pop up ads or anything like it. Perhaps it’s because I’m using my iPad rather than a desktop browser.

    I had a Google ad right across the page earlier that defied all attempts to get rid of it or get aroung it. It was in the middle of the page.

    As others have said, Ad Block.
    Also: you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave!

    Cue Joe Walsh! And I know the frustration Rob is talking about, as I experience it on other sites, but not here. Not sure why it’s so different for me here, except for the iPad, and since I’m bothered by the ads on it in other places, the mystery deepens.

    I use Adguard (Adblock+ is unavailable for Kindle, but I use it on the PC), I turned it off briefly and only got a couple banner ads, one at the top and bottom. Lowes Hardware and Joe Namath shilling Medicare.
