Pop up Ad Windows


Recommended Posts

Anyone else getting a pop-up ad window at the bottom of your screen each time you cycle the forum pages?¬† I don't recall seeing this before.¬† You can clear it, but then it returns when you jump to another page... really annoying¬†ūüė°.¬† This is only happening on MGS.

This is the site being used. Anyway to disable?

Yep, I have seen that type of ad before and it is super annoying. I used to allow ads on MGS; to help provide revenue, but hate that bottom one so much I turned
My ad blocker back on for the mygolfspy domain.

Just tried that, closed and re-opened the site... but still seeing the pop-up.  Must not have done it right.

Same - still seeing that ad at the bottom and confirmed ads and pop ups are blocked via chrome.

I was getting them until yesterday when I loaded AdBlock.  Before that I had Pop Up Stopper which didn't stop them.  They were very annoying.

ABP was the go-to ad blocker back in the day, but it has the ability to see your info. They say they won't/don't do anything with that data, but it's hard to trust any app today. Further, they have "acceptable ads" aka these guys paid us enough money so we'll show you their ads.

 Enter uBlock Origin (I use Brave browser but it's available on all browsers):

Yes, I saw the preamble note from them when downloading.  Perhaps I'll switch to uBlock. It's crazy just how much churn goes on in the quest for personal data.  There is an excellent Netflix documentary on this whole subject "The Social Dilemma".  Thanks for the info.

Yep, your data is worth so much to these companies. I like keeping it to myself as much as possible, and these apps help a little bit with achieving that! I'm not quite a tinfoil hat kinda person, but working in tech has taught me to be cautious. Maybe tinfoil visor?

If you use Chrome in incognito mode you might need to allow ublock to run in incognito

After loading Total Adblock the irritating pop up windows on the forum have disappeared....

but now i get an annoying pop up ad for.....  Total Adblock!!!  How ironic.  They want me to upgrade from their free version to a more powerful paid subscription version.  This ad has been popping up as I get to a new web page for the last three days at least.

I typically read MGS on my iPad. Where that ad show up at the bottom is particularly annoying. I know they gotta pay for this somehow - but it would be better on the side bar

I am with you, hate the ad on the bottom. It caused me to turn my ad blocker back on for MGS. The bottom ad shows up on all devices as far as I can tell
