Default Am I the only one getting ads?

I keep getting these full screen ads. They are only appearing on this site and it just started happening. Why? Is anyone else getting full screen ads?

I've never had to get an add-in though. Chrome has been plenty sufficient as-is. All marketing is literally the worst. If I want your **** I'll come to you. Bombarding me with your unsolicited crap just makes me what to not buy your products. I'm ok with ads being in banners....but then HT.com allows the ads to gray out your entire screen then I have a problem with that.

I agree it sucks.

IB does an OK job of keeping the really shitty ads away. But I hate how they force the mobile site on you even though I check 'desktop only' daily. And when I visit the site on a browser without ad block I'm always amazed at just how many ads there are, I don't see any of that ****, it's glorious.

No, I use adblock plus w/ Chrome, no ads. I think I had to manually block some of the newer stuff but it's stayed gone.

I mean to be fair, there really isn't any better time than now to sign for a CPO Audi.

I'd send IB Jose a PM though

100% Should be running the following (assuming FireFox or Chrome)

- Privacy Badger (and/or uBlock Origin)
- HTTPS Everywhere
- Facebook Container
- Decentraleyes
