it also is a pain in the neck to view the boards with all those Ads. it takes ages to download and at times the Ads cover what you want to see.
ABSOLUTELY right about it being a pain in the neck! Especially the downloading time! Sally, you are right about seeing them because I am not an ad-free supporter. But I have the fix for it, and I only disabled my fix to show Andrew what I was seeing. Andrew, you probably weren't seeing them because you pay to be ad-free? I'm guessing? Here is another screenshot for you, showing how these ads cover the header, chatbox.
I get that the cost to go ad-free is minimal. And when they placed these ads in places that did NOT cover things up, I had no issues with them. I understand their purpose. And I still say they are yuku ads. They never told me they were the ads of others when I approached them about this. Like I said before, they never gave me any further feedback about it all after I (stupidly) owned up to my way around them; and then blasted off one final message to them after they went so far as to come into one of my groups and demand (in that groups chatbox!) that I post, IN THE GROUP, personal email between us in regards to the ads! Why should I pay when I can use something to stop them? It's legal. It's free. It's easy. Page loading is a breeze. And I only need to use it for the one ad-free group. If all this messiness hadn't occurred, I wouldn't have opted for this add-on.
Andrew, about the types of ads being seen...well now there's a good Laugh Out Loud. I do not "Want to Make it With a Cowboy" or watch anyone who does. I go to tons of sites, so possibly they could come from there? Possibly if I searched for a "cowboy themed" scrap kit? But I don't recall that. Acne...no clue. Could they come from other group member's searches?
And, WOW, did we ever get off-topic here! I saw a post in one group earlier this morning where the PB problem was solved? I haven't had time to check for myself yet, but will do so later. And, with fingers crossed and hopes high, all will once again be right with the little PB icon and the post editor.
Andrew, and all others who have weighed in on this and the "ad placement" issues, I thank you for all the feedback and empathizing. It would be oh so wonderful to get to the bottom of the ads placement problem. Perhaps I should address it again in another ticket to them. Hmmm, dare I try again?
