Is the site going to get any worse?

TA has always been pretty bad at plastering ads all over the place, but it also used to be pretty good at managing what was 'acceptable' and what wasn't.
In the past year however, this seems to have gone out of the window.

TA is now a site that makes my CPU and memory usage shoot through the roof. The only website to does that too. So whilst I used to have it pinned and always ready, it has now been relegated to a secondary bookmark.

Making money is its goal as a way to earn a living, but maybe don't forget the community and user experience as well.
Personally I'll now be considering my options. All good things must come to an end?..

Nothings coming to an end lmao... get pro, or use the report AD feature if something is being too intrusive.

Good luck with your other "options"

Got to say the new pop-up ads that have started appearing on every page recently are really pissing me off. I can handle the ones down the side/top of the page but pop-ups are taking the piss. And no, I'm not paying for pro just to block ads. I appreciate the site has to make money but does it have to be via such an intrusive/disruptive method?
Stoke me a clipper, I'll be back for Christmas... Whatever!

Use the report ad feature for anything intrusive, that's why it's there.

Doesn't seem to be on option with these new popup ones otherwise I would have done that already.

There is a thread dedicated for ad issues. TA then finds the issues and fixes them

Also, not sure how the menu under Report Ad doesn't work for any ad.

(Main Menu dropdown -> Report Ad)

Ah, thought you were on about the Ad Choices thing or whatever it's called that usually appears with adds. Hadn't realised there was a section on TA for it. Will give it a shot, though it isn't one particular advert. Cheers

Isn't the mobile version only available if you have Pro anyhow? Otherwise it's the desktop version, correct?

As someone with accessibility issues I'm thinking about filling a report to the FCC for paywalling a mobile site it discriminates me for my disabilities

You do know the FCC is an independent agency of the United States government, right?
