Idk what’s more maddening the ads or when my thread gets merged 😕

I don't post a lot of new threads, but I see where you are coming from. Personally, I think that new threads should be allowed to exist on their own for at least a couple of days before being merged into a general AD or Kyrie thread with hundreds of pages. There is no way you can find something specific in there.

Nick is a great guy and moderator, but it maybe time to have a merge intervention if he keeps this up  ;)

I get swallowed up by banner ads that block ability to scroll through comments.

Any others have same issue? Started a couple of weeks ago.

Any solution? Really annoying.

It happens to me occasionally, but not often. Does it happen to you like every time you come here?

I have an IPhone 5 by the way so it's also possible because on older phones it is prone to lagging a bit/slowing down.

I have XR, new model. Maybe that’s the problem?

I have the iPhone 10 ... it happens ... I think it depends on the time of the day.
I have trouble zooming in when something is loading in the background

Yep, same issues. [dang] Entresto ads 😤

 Would hate to permanently leave this site because of these ridiculous Ads. Does whoever is in charge of the site need help on finding sources of revenue that don't completely destroy the experience?

 Let the Blog know what the issues are. This is getting bad.

I haven't really noticed them. Try using an adblocker.

Without adblockers, yes they're tasteless and intrusive on mobile.  On desktop, I use adblock and ublock rather than whitelist.

tl;dr The ads are disgusting trash. :-X

The ads aren't that bad.  I'd kinda prefer the top banner ad to be a bit smaller but I've seen way worse.

Absolutely all of the ads are ruining this site!! But, it's also all of the people on here who think they need to control the dialogue. I mean, if I want to respond to a post by saying ' I hate this type of post' don't come along and tell me you are going to close my account for voicing my opinion. If you are going to close people's accounts for their opinions then don't open a blog.
