but what is with the annoying John Deere ad that pops up on the bottom of the screen, covering up the posts. Extremely bothersome as I could not find a way to "X" it out... just an arrow to play audio?
ETA: I did find an "X" hidden away, but the complaint remains the same... this is the 4th time it's popped up in less than tn minutes. . .
Today an ad for some kind of hunting gear popped up covering the bottom 1/4 of the screen. I had to close out of the chronicle forum alltogether to get rid of it. There was no x to close it. I like to come here to read posts, but I won't any more if the ads take it over. This is NOT good!
The Dodge one is popping up EVERY TIME I go to a different page. The only thing I have learned tonight is that I will NEVER buy a Dodge!! I click through quite a few ads on this site, and I appreciate the advertisors that make it possible for me to use this site for free, but an annoying ad that pop-ups everytime I click on a different page is just too intrusive. I am really hoping it is a temporary glitch and not a new advertising ploy because I won't be able to stand that for very long!
They are messing with my iPad and I am not happy! Trying to click the x to close sometimes activates the link behind instead, opening a new window (ad). Or the whole thing just locks up completely. I have Adblock onmy PC but didn't have to worry on my iPad...until now.
I actually like the ads along the sides. I get to see new products, etc. The ads with sound are extremely obnoxious, but not enough for adblock. But these new ads along the bottom are too much. I installed adblock. I will miss the ads on the sides, but I cannot stand the ads with sound and the ads that cover half the page.
COTH- please get rid of these ads and I will happily uninstall adblock!

I also made a mental note to never buy a Dodge. I support relevant ads, but I take notice of and avoid supporting companies which use ads that "badger." Ads that are extremely difficult to close are really crossing the line.
