Something has changed. I have never used an ad blocker, and wasn't bothered too much by the ads in the past. When I posted on Friday, the ads were insane. There was an ad inside every post, and 3 or 4 more on the page. Today it seems back to normal. Maybe you guys don't notice because you use the blockers?

Probably, I gave the ads a chance, made sure it was known here that the ads were getting in the way of daily use if the forums, I thought maybe somebody from IB would maybe fix them, but nobody bothered, so now I'll keep them blocked for good, I never click ads anyway..

I notice nothing. My Adblocker blocks 99% of the ads.

It works so good, I don't see ads in youtube videos anymore

I think the ads that you see is affected by being a subscriber, and there was one point the staff got a free subscription as a Christmas bonus back in the day. I don't know if any of that has changed, but if you were a subscriber and are not one any longer, that may also have an impact.

Nope, being a subscriber has nothing to do with that anymore.
