When i'm on my PC, the ads aren't too bad. Usually just something at the bottom that I can click out of and not intrusive. I can handle that. But on the phone, I find myself having to reopen a safari window every couple of minutes(after a "you've won" message overtakes screen). Close to unusable. Only happens with this site.

I do appreciate the admins listening! That's not something you always get on all sites...and that's worth a lot.

Thanks for the kind words! I definitely understand how annoying that "you've won" ad is. I see it from time to time on other sites, and it drives me nuts.

I'm working with our ad manager to completely remove the ad framework that that ad is linked to. The wheels move slowly, as they're based in London, but they are moving! Thanks to everyone for bearing with me as we work this out.

If you surf lots of porn sites you will get ad ware and thus lots of pop ups. Just saying.....

I believe we have reached some resolution with our ad provider. They seem to have found the source of the bad ads, and have removed them. If you do get one again, if you could take a screenshot and send it to me, we can more directly get rid of any bad ads that slip through

Would it be possible to remove the ad that's along the bottom of the screen and move it over to either side of blank space on the right or left? I'm on my PC when I log on to the site so I don't know how that affects mobile users, but I'd much rather have the ad bubble follow me as a scroll down on my right or left flank.
