    A woman taking a picture of her vag? An eye socket full of thorns?

    I can't respond to any post without being subjected to the most hideous images. If the idea is to get me to click on advertiser links out of intrigue, you've failed miserably. All it does is piss me off.

    You should really get some more tasteful advertising.

    Move your cursor over offending image and bring up the x in the top right corner.

    Then you can eliminate offending images.

    I usually get whatever websites I was recently looking at. For example Opentable.com is currently being shown.

    What websites are you going to?

    What's really crappy is when I'm on my ipad (thankfully, the only time I see the stupid ads), if I am replying to a post and someone else posts in the meantime, the screen jumps and my typing ends up being a click on the ad which opens up a website to God knows what. A very unsafe and potentially virus enabling flaw on this website.

    I didn't know about that. Does it stay eliminated?

    Seems to.

    You click on a reason you want it removed, and they say thank you, they will try not to show it again.

    They aren't here to piss you off.

    Yup they are disgusting, and everybody has complained. It's all part and parcel of usmb's descent into nothingness. And a clear indication of who their core posting audience is.

    Most of the ads when I'm browsin USMB are usually about tits and fitness. I don't mind at all.​
