There is enough frustration in the world right now and not being able to read this board without having ads pop up and over everything, is really frustrating!!!!

Use a ad blocker this will resolve the issue.

I agree with Lisa - use an ad blocker. They are free, easy to use, and they work. Just do a search for whatever web browser you're using and ad blocker. For instance "Firefox ad blocker" or "Chrome ad blocker". It's an ad-on to your browser.

I use adblock. But if I try to read using my phone the adblock doesn't always work. So I usually don't bother. I won't go to websites with pop ups and it seems like 99% of the blogs these days have a pop up of some kind or other. I get wanting to earn money on your blog but pop ups are the worst thing ever when you're trying to read something on a blog.

You shouldn't need to download anything. Most web browsers have them as add-ons to the browser itself. As I said, if you type the name of your browser + ad blocker, you will be able to find what you need.
