Please, do something about the new ad popups! I can not read an entire article. A pop up comes up every few seconds! If I can't read an article there is no need to come to cyclingnews!

I don't know if this is what slopoke was referring to, but I am now getting "streaming" popup ads, appearing in the upper right hand side of the page (on a pc), when I open a new article to read. And I don't see an easy way to halt or pause the ad so I can read in peace. If this continues, I absolutely will not use your site while at work (perhaps you're in cahoots with my employer?) because streaming is not allowed even if I'm "off the clock" on a break.

ESPN has long had the same type of streaming video when you open an article, but the "stop/pause" button is easily visible so I can turn it off.

In the past week, I have been getting redirects to the App Store and some very sketchy-looking popover ads when accessing the site from a mobile device. I never had these things happen before.

Once again today, I keep getting redirected to ads that lead to the app store when accessing the forum on an iphone. It has happened once just while typing this message.
