    The only advert that I see now is the one advert across the top of the screen as I’ve turned off the ones down the side by clicking the small arrow head in the ‘welcome to FM’ box next to the Thanks & Likes box.

    They’re probably no worse now than they were before Binka decided to leave, on my devices anyway. Thanks to the work that admin done to reduce them.
    Other than the occasional slightly annoying text jump when I’m reading a long post, but I can live with that.

    However the site has to have some adverts on it just to help the site cover its costs.

    I’m not sure whether you have to make a certain number of posts before all the other adverts on your screen disappear though.

    If it hadn't been for the text jump I could have lived with them. It irritated me that much I installed an ad blocker for the first time in nearly 30 yrs of computing. 'uBlock Origin' Works a treat in Firefox. I don't see any ad's at all.

    I use Firefox with Adblock Plus and Ghostery and I see no ads whatsoever.

    Get with it and get rid of them.

    No ads at all save for a banner advert along the top on Chrome without any Adblocker.

    I am happy!

    Brilliant, I just installed adblocker plus and all ads have now disappeared, including the banner at the top.

    How the hell do I get a free adblocker on my fire tablet,it seems more hassle than having the ads in the first place!
