Default Ads In Threads

Since this afternoon I'm also getting the adds on top of every forum thread.

It sucks

Anyone knows how to block em?

Adblock does nothing.

I browse these forums at work sometimes and I really don't appreciate having tits all over my screen unexpectedly. Turn that **** off.

I agree with this. If you have to have adds, at least pick something more suitable for people at work.

This is more annoying than most of my posts.

Please ban those adds, seriously.

You're lucky - I have Michele Bauchman, an Ipad3? and a Ferrari on mine (the enzo, really poor choice).

But yes, the ads are very annoying.

I don't like blocking ads from trustworthy sites. But when they are intrusive like these ones in threadview (don't mind the one at the bottom of the forumview or the index) I'm left with little choice.

A lot of forums only show such horrible ads to guests, thus providing an incentive to register and not punishing the forum contributors, yet maintain a revenue source. A shame that this is not the case here.
