    Anyone else seeing some crazy annoying Adchoice ads here that slow down page loads recently? It just started today for me. I have two Adblockers running and they don't do anything. On every site I tested... ESPN, CNN, etc., I have no ads at all with the Adblockers running. I even ran a malwarebytes scan and found nothing of note. I reset Chrome too and they're still there.

    Anyone else see them?

    I'm a bit tired of seeing the quiz and sherdog tweets at the right hand side as well. Often find myself embroiled in random quizzes when I least expect it.

    I don't see ads anymore thankfully. I made a thread in the support forum about how all the ads were making it impossible to post from my phone. So they just gave me a plat membership.

    It's hell waiting an extra 10 seconds for this garbage to load on every page.

    Can't see myself posting as much if this keeps up.

    Everything works fine.

    Theres a small banner in the side bar with 2 ads that barely bother me. I don't know why you girls have your panties in a bunch.

    Same until I downloaded free adblocker browser from the playstore.

    All emails I use the phone browser but this one for surfing the net. Helps keep your sanity on sherdog.

    That quiz thing is so fucking shit though. One of the questions I saw was "who is the current (2008) HW champion". How fucking out of date are they that 2008 was current.

    Yes - and I'm getting some weird video that always seems to be under the first post in each thread.

    What's everyone using? I'm on Win 10 with Chrome. I'm running Adblocker and Adguard and nothing is working.

    Yeah, they're slowing things down badly.

    I switched browsers and adblocker and eventually had my revenge.

    What did you switch to? It's almost impossible to use the forum now.

    You merely adopted the ads. I was born in it.

    I'm using Windows 10 with Firefox. Firefox doesn't support Java because it caused too many problems. They also have a way to disable autoplay on other videos. Maybe Chrome has an add on for that?
