Re(3): Ad Problems Also Posted on April 11, 2016 at 07:29:19 PM by mimic117
Thank you for the quick reply. To answer your comments:
I don't advertise the board at all, but it is an open board. No one has to register to post, so that's probably why we get hit by bots.
The person who reported the current problem had this to say:
"I turned off my blocker so that I could gather information for you and I just couldn't get onto the site. I'd make it on for 2 seconds before an add kicked in.
That's as much as I could do without wanting to slam my phone against the wall in frustration (I have to shut my browser down in order to escape the ad).
Doing all that caused an issue.
The ads were able to get past my blocker, which meant that I couldn't submit my answer to you. I had to turn my iPhone on and off again. This has fixed it."
Another board visitor said this:
"I'm in France, and I don't have any problems to get into the site
I don't use un adblocker and yes there're ads, but "regular" french ads, I mean nothing explicit, and they don't bother me - I"m using a laptop and Internet Explorer."
So we have two people without ad blockers. One can get into the site and isn't seeing inappropriate ads. The other is having a lot of trouble getting AND seeing explicit ads even when she does use an ad blocker. Different devices, different browsers, possibly different operating systems.
