    yes, websites like ad revenue to stay in business

    Also, if you get ad's in 2016 and know what google is, you kinda deserve 'em

    I was referring to you giving the posters in this thread Plat for the time being. It didnt make sense when I logged on that I was Plat. Then I saw your post. It makes sense now.

    If Sherdog needs money hit up Conor Mcgregor. There are enough Conor posters that enjoy swinging from is dick, and pushing/pumping up his fights, he should feel obligated to throw some dollars at the Dog.

    This is the only page I visit that gives me problems. I have to use opera to browse sherdog because everything else swamps me with ads or just the forum software is super glitchy. Works fine for me right now with opera but I've been complaining about the ads for years

    Take this privately in the future. Don't want any of my Sherbrothers seeing penalisation. Per Tachy and SD rubric as of this month (October) and onward...

    Cheers, guys.

    Thanks, man. I missed that sticky.

    I don't mind ads but they were actually making it impossible to use the forum. If I can't even get here, they're not going to get ANY clicks. If I was running a website, that's something I'd like to know.

    I did not mean to help people screw SD. My entire intention began and ended with helping people work around a terminal pop-up that broke the experience for me. I definitely broke the rules, though, thanks for looking out!

    All that said, a Platinum account is so cheap and I'm on here often enough that I'm going to do that.

    Mods, I won't get my panties in a bunch if you'd like to delete my posts ITT. I'm sure Diogenes of Sinope disn't mean to break the rules, either, he's a good guy.

    The problem on these sites are not ads, but the annoying way they're implemented. Do you really think there is ever a justification for a massive pop-up that fills the screen, slows down the computer, and actually freezes your browser? It's absurd that the morons behind these ads complain about the pop-up blocking technology that their own intolerable business practices forced into existence.

    I'm actually of the mind that these sort of pop-ups and trackers are criminal and if I could I'd sue every fucking company responsible for interfering with the performance of my devices. It's like trying to shop at a store while people with an ad signs constantly jump in front of you trying to sell you something.

    The ads on the side, or better yet banners, are perfectly fine, but pop-ups are not under any circumstance. It takes some nerve to tell people not to talk about ad-blockers when you're ads are so intrusive.

    It's becoming unbearable to use the mobile version. I don't know why any company would have redirects/malware if they want those same people to come back.

    Ive been forced to install noscript for firefox just to stop these. What i hate is actually reading the site, then some loud audio about windex fills the room and im franticly changing apps to avoid head turns.

    The main site is unbearable, even with ad control software. So many military ads and dodge ram ads, and even if you read an article a video starts playing in the middle of the screen. I live in the boonies and my only high speed internet is to tether my phone, and these ads are killing my data plan. I'll check back every now and then, but goodbye sherdog main page. I hope the forums don't screw up too.

    Not only the ads, but now my iPad is getting constant JavaScript errors making posting a complete pain in the ass. I have to either refresh a page or outright shut the Safari browser down to make a post. Posting an image or a YT link starts a continuous loop that can't be broken unless you shut the page down.

    It's pretty damn sad when a web site can make an Apple product perform as bad as a PC/Android device.


    P.S.- Came back to post that I had to refresh the page just to make sure it posted right and had to actually edit this post in a new tab. What a friggin joke.

    At work with no blocking features. Every single page loads a video that auto plays and has sound.

    Is this how sherdog wants to drive people away? I can't imagine having to deal with that crap for every single page you visit.
