    Post in the help forum - Ray has always said these ads occasionally break through the defenses, but if you give them info about them they will take care of it.

    Agree. They have become a bit too invasive lately. The experience is getting a bit annoying.

    You don't need a different browser. Adblockplus.org will detect what browser you're using and it will install the plugin that matches it. Also, if the alternative is leaving GC (deal breaker), why isn't using Adblock a better alternative? Content and traffic also help GC to grow and seem relevant. Not to mention, ads are just here to stay. Regardless of what site you join, you'll get ad's on other sites or you'll get crap content. It's up to you.

    Also what TotheEnd said, if you post it in the help forums, Ray is usually pretty good about killing ads that are too intrusive. You just need to give him a little time.

    I love it. They are great! It's like playing a video game while I text.

    On a sidenote how much can I pay for no pop ups?

    Also Exxon Mobil has some good deals.

    Am not very tolerant of these ridiculous videos popping up nor the ads showing. Any suggestions how to block them...very irritating.

    Just noticed them this am for the first time. Apparently the “x” is not used to close the ad, at least For me. Nice it’s like a virtual game of swat the never ending spider web for my fingers

    I stopped using regular browsers for this forum 2 years ago. Was unusable even then. I have an ad blocker browser now that works well enough. I don't get video ads at all anymore

    Sidenote, I have never used purchased anything advertised through any pop up ads. They actually turn me away from the company or product if I actually even paid attention enough to know who or what they are advertising. I usually make it a point not to pay attention. Great strategy corporate America!! Invade every last personal interest and piss people off!

    Go to Adblockplus.org, it will automatically have you download the plugin for your browser. If using a phone, go to the play store and download any ad blocker.
