Anyone else getting a T-Mobile pop up consistently today? Can’t even browse for more than a few minutes at a time.

Here we go again. I've been getting these pop over ads for the last 3 days. They show up over top of posts so that you can't read, and there's no way to X out of them. Even when you click through them and check the opt out option, it only works for a little bit. It appears to be for some e-commerce thing called Criteo. And one popped up as I was typing this. This is ridiculous...

I've been told that the team is close to identifying the problem and that it should be resolved today.

No ad should ever obscure site content. This is completely unacceptable, and I apologize to all of you for the inconvenience and frustration.

When I get some answers, I'll be sure to share them with you all.

We'll be updating the site fairly soon and the new layout will include fewer ad placements, as well as an ad free subscription option.

In the meantime, if an ad is disturbing or offensive, I can ask the team to block it. I'd just need a screenshot and the address the ad points to.

The ads are getting ridiculous.

Not justba few here n there. Some huge ad breaks up the page like every 4 posts and theres always a banner ad at the top and bottom of the page :smh:
