TAMs intrusive advertising

TAM can you quit with the intrusive advertising??? I am not going to pay for TAM just to stop obtrusive advertising. I know how that game works, as I have been sucked into that line of BS on other sites. I will not be sucked in again only to have tam say that you needed to advertise anyway despite members paying.

So how about you confine your stupid little advertisements to the borders of TAM?

In return I will stop my whining.

I have adblock installed. It's free and it works. I see zero ads whether on here, YouTube or other sites.

I have seen way more adds on other sites. The minimal amount I see here dont bother me at all. Everybody has to pay bills.

Re: TAMs intrusive advertising

I don't mind ads but some of them are pretty bad. When I try to have more than a couple tabs open on TAM my browser (Safari) lags out and will crash. Pretty sure it is this site.

I never read the ads, so they don't bother me.

Nice!

I just installed it as an addon to Firefox. Immediate removal of most ads. It doesn't disable ALL ads, although it says there's an option to do that but I can't find it.

Any suggestions?

My extension is for Chrome. AFAIK, they use the same databases though and since adblock was originally created for FF, some say it's superior to the Chrome version.

I'd check your settings/options for adblock, see if there is anything like: "allow some non-intrusive adds". Make sure that is left un-selected. That should block everything, or at least most things. I really haven't noticed any ads for years. I'm sure something gets by once in a while but it's 99% effective IMO.

If that doesn't resolve the issue, I'd check to make sure there is no other adware installed on your computer. Check your extensions/add ons for your browser for any unwanted programs.

Whenever I've had a problem, it's been because I downloaded a program that I wanted but missed the additional installs and some kind of adware installed itself to my extensions/add-ons, but nothing to do with the adblock extension itself. Even then, I don't tend to see the ads but it does slow my Internet and the adblock shows an extremely high count for blocked ads.

Re: TAMs intrusive advertising

I checked the box to block all ads.

Seems like FaceBook ad for healthy marriages is the only ad not blocked.

No other adware on my pc as far as I can tell.

Re: TAMs intrusive advertising

i too use adblock plus on chrome on this site. I tried this site on firefox, but the flash was not working too well with firefox/adblock/noscript, so i gave up trying. On IE...the pages took forever to load.

On firefox there is an option of seeing the time to load a page....and there are just a boatload of things loaded here, like one .jpg for .2 seconds, ten more, etc. Odd that the data loaded is very small for each, but each item took a huge amount of time.

Clear your browser cache. That should take care of it. Most likely just leftover from the before Adblock time. Lol

Hook me up a new revolution, cause this one is a lie. Sat around laughing and watched the last one die.

Edit to add: Deejo, I promise I'll show him my comment asap so as to not break your rule about smack talking the banned/damned.
