With Google Chrome browser with AdBlock extension never see an ad on this company's sites.

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...namgkkbiglidom

Without the extension, the pages were unreadable for me. Now no issues at all.

The ads are a necessary-evil but the unsolicited video-ads that come on with their audio are super distracting. People come here to read and having those videos come to life unexpectedly is really annoying. If I think I want to view a video ad I will click on it, to have it shoved down my throat is uncalled for.

One of the videos (today )was a Michael Jackson ad-seems the poor bastard is being resurrected, I was happy with him where he was. Another video ad today was for Chevrolet selling over-priced Camaros.

Now I liked a lot of things that Michael Jackson did throughout his career and I actually think the guy was a musical genius, but, I also don't go looking for Elvis Presley either. As far as new Camaros are concerned...people that come to a DIY site seeking low-budget ideas aren't usually shopping for fifty-thousand dollar sports cars.

Not sure what the krap I was hearing.... one was about "avocados" and the other I think was "tylenol'... I think I heard a car ad also.... those were the ones I could not silence.

Think this site has been hacked.... or whatever the word/expression is.?

I see some slightly animated ads but not videos and none of them have sound.

CRICKET.... Please let me/us know... is this new and DIY approved advertizing/junk, or have you been hacked, or have I got some kind of virus or something on my computer.

Really, would appreciate your advice/honesty.

TIA

Best

Peter

I have checked the site it multiple browsers both logged in and logged out and am not experiencing what you have described. I am seeing the same number of advertisements we have had for quite some time, in the same locations. The site has not in any way been compromised.

I am seeing layout issues on the site from ads when a user is not logged in. These issues have been reported to our tech guys and will hopefully be corrected very soon.
