Google ads on top, on the bottom and scrolling ads in the middle where i read a thread.

Wtf is this crap hijacking my DU account that I just donated money to support?

I take no issue with DU.
My bitch is with fking google's pasting of random ads all over a page I'm trying to read.

Why no ads today, but everywhere the past couple days?
Are they going to show up randomly now?

I hear you.

Gaaaaaaaadddd its annoying.

I tend to have ublock enabled on my phone because ads are obnoxious on a small screen but I let DUs ads through (I block the ones on the side because they're very distracting but keep the header / top one).

It weird. Today is fine. Monday & tuesday were crazy . Ads were so interrupting that I just logged out & I have only seen that kind of add push on Yahoo maybe.

Will post if ads show up again.
None today, Wednesday.

We'll see.

Thanks
