Adblocker Error Message

Something really weird happened on my mac, when I accidentally scrolled over an ad. Some kind of file started downloading? It was weird. I got scared and got rid of it quickly.

Def don't like the ads...I mean, I agree that most people that come here on a regular basis are not going to click ads. Maybe tone down the ads some so they are not so intrusive?

There's a solution here and it's not to make the ads so obscenely intrusive that it drives people away altogether. I agree that was a step in the wrong direction. It would be nice if we could be consulted on major decisions like this, seeing as this is a premium (paid) service.

I hope we get a constructive discourse and not a locked thread like the last update.

Adblocker has an iOS app that works well. I was getting the scrolling ad on the bottom as well.

I turned off ad blocker on my computer in a show of good faith but I can't deal with that scrolling one on mobile.
I just turned off the adblocker after reading your post and refreshed the page. So far, so good. :yep:

So I just downloaded 1Blocker on my iPhone and that's working very well so far. Out of the 13+ years I've been on here I've never complained about LHCF but whew that scrolling bar at the bottom of the phone was driving my mind into dark places.

Mandatory positive. This experience, and the threads that came out of it, forced me to learn about ad blockers. My mac isn't gettting the worst ads so I guess the built in protections in safari are working. My iPad is a completely different story. I paid money for an adblocker (I know there are free ones) and I'm really, really, really pleased. None of the ads are showing up on my iPad. I'm not even seeing the adblocker message.

I no longer get the ads on my windows, mac or iphone(dont think i ever got them on there). ive always had the ad blocker app on my phone. Im glad they stopped because i was checking to see if it was legal for pop ups like that to force people to disable adblocker on a page.

Thank you for the recommendation. I downloaded it and it's working perfectly.

Did the ads get better on mobile for those without blockers? I've allowed them on my browser for now.

@dimopoulos Is it enough to view the ads or are you guys counting on clicks?
