    Yes. I just noticed it for the first time this morning. I have an ad blocker too. I agree, very irritating.

    please also post what kind of device and operating system you are using

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    I've had the issue for the last week or so as well. I have been using either a Dell laptop or Dell desktop computer, both using Windows 7 Professional OS, both using Firefox w/ad blocker.

    It's not every thread nor is it every comment in those threads in which the ads do appear. But it has been multiple responses in a single thread.

    I am having this issue too. Very annoying. I am using my Amazon Fire 8HD, Bing search engine and Windows 10 operating system.

    interesting because I use an Ipad2 and safari and I don’t have problems. Could it be the carrier? I’m on Att. Very perplexing I’m sure

    Irritating is the way to describe it. I understand that this forum is free for us, and that advertising supports the costs. We already have advertising on the top, each side and at the bottom... not sure where this will end up next. Ironically, there is no mid-thread advertising in this thread....

    I'm on a desktop and with Firefox. The ads just started showing up today. I haven't had internet at home since last Monday so I don't know about my laptop. I don't remember seeing them on my tablet, but I haven't been on a lot with it so I'm not sure.

    I, too, am getting ads in the middle of posts. I am using a Dell Inspiron 17 laptop, Firefox for the browser, and my operating system is Ubuntu linux, Aardvark version.

    I've been getting ads for over a week... I usually am on my Kindal. At the top it says my name and "Fire 10". I don't know what that means.

    Thank you, Patrice.
    I haven't been on for a while but noticed this yesterday.
    I use an iPad Air and also use Safari. Every four posts on this thread, there is an ad for me but I haven't seen one in the middle of a post on this thread. I'll go back and see if I can find the thread that I saw it on.

    they are trying to figure out how to fix that.
    those ads have always been there for folks who are not logged in.
    never there for folks who are logged in.
    somehow they started appearing for all.
    they've been working on it for quite a while.

    it's annoying but not life-threatening.
    hang in there.

    Hi Patrice,
    I logged on last night and what an improvement! There were only a few ads once in a while and I was able to click out of them.
    Thank you again and pass along my thanks to the IT people...

    It seems as though after the login message at the top of the page issue was resolved, ads started popping up in the middle of threads again. I don't think it's as prolific as it was initially. But still sometimes frustrating. Thanks for working on the issue so diligently.
