    Default Pop ups blocking my posts

    This has only been happening since yesterday. Whenever I try to quick reply I see a pop up at the bottom centre of my screen and have to close it before I can actually reply.

    Anyone had this issue?

    It started for me last week if not slightly before but I have the same issue running Chrome. The pop-up isn't just taking up the centre as it appears, it's a banner that covers the entire bottom of the browser and only the centre section contains content from what I can tell.

    I typically end up scrolling above it, so it hasn't really changed much on my end. I've been seeing them for a while now though.

    Started about three weeks ago for me. Indeed, very annoying. Sadly, I find it so annoying I've put my ad blocker on so all I see is a little tiny X and not the ugly box. I'll keep my ad blocker on until this issue is fixed.

    This issue will never get fixed because it is how this site makes money

    Well, I had this site whitelisted before. I'm willing to have ads on sites where I enjoy the content. But it just can't be something as annoying as a pop-up box. I will just leave my ad blocker on permanently, then.

    Same issue for about 2 weeks with pop ups on this site only on my iPad.
    Sometimes it’s the x at the bottom right, most times it’s the ad right in the middle of the post.
    Very frustrating.

    I agree, it is very annoying. I have an ad blocker enabled but I still have the floating "X" in the most inconvenient spot like others have mentioned.

    Same issue for me. Started a couple of weeks ago I think. Really annoying.

    It's probably not necessary to join in at this point, but I have this problem too...

    Yep. I know it's for ad revenue, but there has to be less intrusive ways. Not the best way to keep people visiting the site.

    Reminds me of the very annoying ads with sound. I remember Dobber went to great lengths to keep those of this site because he knew how annoying they were for users. I'm wondering if he has any idea how annoying these pops up are. If he's not, I suspect he will find out as everyone turns there ad blockers back on...
