I was super frustrated with it yesterday as I couldn't read postings since it popped up frequently and was blocking the threads.
I clcked on the little icon that sits to the left of the "x" in the right hand top of the ad and it took me to a page where I clicked unsunscribe -The ad is not appearing today. I was apprehensive to do this because I didn't want to have anything imbed in my system so I next cleared all browsing data and cookies and did a system check. Hope it worked with nothing left behind in my system
Thank you. I tried it - didn't get 'unsubscribe', but i got 'opt out'. Done! We'll see what happens.

wow that ad blocker really works, it was the one in the lower left that really bugged me too, but now I don't have a single one!

mjkgquilt - I think that it was the question mark that I clicked on (next to the x n upper right corner of ad)and then the next page stated either "unsubscribe" or "opt out" and I clicked that -so far it has worked to eliminate the big ad that was popping up in the bottom left corner - covered part of discussion thread.
Hopefully it wil be gone for the long term but I wouldn't be surprised if it comes back n a month or two. LOL the name of the game for free site use is to have ads to "sell, sell sell"

I understand sell, sell, sell. Since there is another ad always appearing in the bottom middle area, wish the larger ad on the bottom left would disappear. Of course, I have the option to quit viewing the Quilting Board and may do that.

Please post a screenshot of the intrusive ad. Once I can identify it, I can forward to our ad team for removal.

The ad varied ...... only consistent thing was the bottom left corner, overtop of whatever was on the screen.

Sorry, that I cannot give you a screenshot, as I got rid of it, using the ? in top right corner of the advert. Then found the option to kill it. So far so good, and it is gone ........ I SO now hope I am not tempting fate by speaking to the matter!
