The pop up ads on this site is a PITA when I am using my Ipad. Site owners please make them go away!

You have to become a supporting member to lose the ads. Such is life, I'm afraid.

The site has to make $$$ somehow in order to stay up and running. Become a Supporting Member and the ad load goes WAY down.

The mobile pop ups are still there when you're a supporter.

The small ad which appears on the bottom of mobile version website slows everything down. I understand the point of the ad, but it slows the device down to the point that is no longer possible to look through threads. Or I might just be using an old iPod touch 2nd gen...

I use TapaTalk myself when I browse the forums via mobile. Though I still get one ad and while it's annoying, it doesn't slow anything down (for me). When I'm browsing via computer, I get EVERY ad as I need to see what guests see...

Wow, that's a lot Sal.

The ads are fine in Chrome but they bring IE to it's knees.

I'm glad to hear IE may have improved. Since that's the most popular browser there is, it's very important that it works well with the side.. Unfortunately, that hasn't EVER been the case. If IE ever worked smoothly here, we'd see a huge increase in traffic. I've only run into ONE person who's heard of this forum out in the real world. Not too great...

I bet 99% of people who own cars, never have, and never will, visit an automotive forum.
