Ads are getting out of hand.

I know people got bills to pay and money to make but I think these new video ads that interrupt browsing sessions like I'm watching a damn YouTube video and these rollover ads at the bottom of the screen that are blocking messages and whatnot are just getting excessive.

Particularly for paid members......if anything, make the free riders endure this annoyance, golds should be exempt.

Just my 2 cents.

Don't think it is the site making money. I get them all the time too especially a GMC truck commercial and one from that deodarant called Axe. Asked adminmma about it and he said they are working on it at VS.

I've only ever had one annoying add here that I saw for a couple days. All others are static with no sound. Weird.

I get them on mozilla firefox because that's what they use at work here. Chrome must be more ficient with the blocking and what have you.

I also use Chrome which in fact makes me sufficiently better than you.
