I just viewed the site with no adblock to see what would come up. I was not logged in. All sorts of annoying ads, including some for firearms. Can't speak for others, but this is one reason why I rarely post anymore.

Don't ask for a screenshot. If admin is not aware of what is going on, that is pretty scary and uninspiring.

I'm running adblock plus and even when I log out I see zero ads.

if you're not hiking you should be skiing

Logged out users will see more ads then logged in. If you're seeing these auto-play ads while logged in, please grab the ads URL and post it here. When we get that we'll send it to our ad-opts team to be investigated and removed.

Thanks, hope there is some of auto filter to knock these weapon ads out before first time browsers come here. This kind of thing kills our site.

Hiking is what keeps you young of mind and heart. When the going gets tough, the tough get going..............

It already killed the site; 95 percent of users that were contributing regularly stopped coming because of it. With single gun add you VS guys reverse all the good posters like Karvitk and few others that are still sticking around do.

No...there are plenty of other reasons why I don't contribute anymore...hunting ads are not one of them.
But seriously, anybody who is bothered by ads should install AdBlock and be done with it....

Or don't mention <shooting> <hunting> <guns> <ammunition> and the bots will stop picking up on it.

Agreed.

This gun ads are sure a huge eyesore and detract seriously from the spirit of this site.....

Logged on with my wife's computer. Still seeing gun ads. Two different ones so far. Right along with Motherhood maternity clothes, which aren't quite as offensive as guns.... Also one showcasing an American gymnist.

How long will this go on? Does admin even know what's going on on this site? Or not even care?

I see the guns ads too, a pop up on the bottom right of the screen when not logged on. Even more annoying now, which doesn’t happen all the time, but enough to annoy the shit out of me, is when looking at photos an ad will pop up and cover the entire photo for about three or four seconds and then shrinks off to the bottom third. I don’t have the best signal in Jasper but the site is virtually unusable. It really, really sucks.

That truly is annoying.... we need a stronger solution to block these things...

Next ads you see, can I get the fresh screenshots and links for them? I'll run up the chain.
