Ads IN forum threads block text from view.

Is anyone else getting ads showing up IN forum threads. They actually cover up the text of the thread and I cannot make my browser window big enough to uncover it. Very annoying. They have been Meijer ads for me so far.

If you mean you see such ads when you're not logged in, then the point was discussed here already.

In such circumstances, the solution is to log in.

(If you're talking about probs while logged in, that'll take a techie to answer).

I think he means they actually cover up the forum text so it is unreadable.

For example, if this was a para
and then you couldn't see it b
the solution wouldn't necessar
get it? Not my wife or my aunt
forever anyways. I think that t
$600 down the drain so whatev
bitch?" And then she took off a
cops came. And that's why I'm
sporting goods store again.

That was an awesome explanation.

There isn't a reason why this should be happening. Can someone please post a screen shot along with what browser they're using?

Sadly, that's true. I thought this was a low traffic enough area to test post in...

You're thinking of Book Talk.
