I typically use this web site on my iPad with Safari, many times by clicking a topic from the daily email. The site has gotten almost unusable recently due to the ads covering everything up. I had to switch to my Mac with Safari where the ads are now in a less invasive space. Is anyone else noticing this change?

Yep. Yesterday was particularly bad. I could only read one posting. Logging in makes a difference.

I only access this site from my home PC, and do not see any ads, but then, again, I have an ad blocker on my PC...................................................Dizzy

Last week there was a Home Depot ad that would pop up in the middle of the screen that I couldn't close. Had to refresh the page and that's a pain when reading through a post.
Hasn't happened this week.

I don't usually notice ads... I was seeing a lot today (Microsoft Surface, Firefox) but once I logged in it got way better. Just changed preferences, though that didn't seem to do much, but only one ad on the sidebar now.

Amazingly, you can disable ads on this site. If you click on your name in the upper right-hand side, you get a menu. Click "Your account," then click "Preferences." There will be a box you can tick to "disable ads."
Thanks, Paul. It works fine. Also, I had to "save" and exit the site and sign back in for the changes to take effect.
