    Default Ads
    The ads on MMi are getting to the point where it is unusable, I seem to be clicking on more ads than links.

    It is getting to the point where I don't want to visit.

    I wonder how many people have just given up on this site, redirecting to the App Store was very annoying but seems to have stopped but the adds are now just popping up over where I am trying to click to the point where I am likely to give up.

    Something will change. If it's not MMi it will have to be me.

    It was brought to our attention a few weeks back that there was one popping up, Kyle fixed that.
    Need more info about them so we can pass it on to Kyle.
    I use Firefox and AdBlocker and never see them. Help us help you.

    The banner add down the bottom usually pops up over the post buttons just as I am clicking them. Very, very annoying.

    I will get with the advertiser to reiterate these ads are not acceptable. Thanks!

    The new twist on this the last few days, Kyle, are audio ads now.. No popup.. And none of the sidebar ads have video links. You just come to MMI URL and a geico audio ad starts playing thru the speakers - no other browser windows opened. These advertisers are getting very clever.
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    These pop up adds are also very annoying, cancel one and another appears in its place.
