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.

Right click on picture in ad box.
Left click on view image info
check box that says block images from outbrain.com If I find a way to block the whole thing I will post it

It was bad enough on the bottom of the page

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.

These adds are ****ing terrible. I mean really? They're the most innane drivel you could possibly find on the internet and this is what you choose to advertise for on a cycling forum?
I can't possibly imagine you get any click-throughs on these things, so all you're achieving is just ****ing people off.

But hell, now I just went and blocked everything out of spite.

:edit:
Even better.

I believe in a clean sport, cycling isn't it. Still entertaining, though.

I still try to block the rest but getting rid of the pics helps.

This looks like the source

At the bottom of the page the ads had no relevance. In the middle of the thread makes for unhappy campers

Installed AdBlock for Chrome especially to get rid of this sh!t.
Works perfectly.

Just add:
forum.cyclingnews.com##DIV[class="outbrain_box"]
to your manual filters.

Gone.

Meanwhile I also removed all the other adds. Will uninstall when those horrible adds are removed.

NoScript also removed all the ads. pity, I did look and click occasionally. If they put those ads back on the bottom I too will unblock skimresources
