So now I'm getting a pop-up when I click a section of the forum.

Hmmm. I only get top & bottom banners (over & under the meat). I'm running Windows 10 20H2 & Firefox 83.0.

I've been getting the same pop ups and at times huge ads in the middle of the page (sometimes takes up half the page,) breaking up the posts.

I've been getting them too but they're on a separate page that I have to click through before getting to the forum page...

I've been getting "This ad used too many resources for your device, so Chrome removed it." (I've seen it on one other page, but mostly here.)

I don't get any ads on this forum. Is it because I use Adblock Plus?

A combination of NoScript and the "Immunization" feature of SpyBot Search & Destroy do it for me. I still get ads on all sites from time to time, tho.

I have adblock, but I chose to leave ads up on sites I like so they can get some of the revenue to help pay the bills. It's only when the ads start to become a problem that I turn it on.
