    Same on iPhone and PC but not on iPad. Irritating.
    When Donald Trump said to protest “peacefully”, he meant violence.

    When he told protesters to “go home”, he meant stay for an insurrection.

    And when he told Brad Raffensperger to implement “whatever the correct legal remedy is”, he meant fraud.

    War is peace.

    Freedom is slavery.

    Ignorance is strength.

    On my phone, it's annoying. Otherwise, I don't really care.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    I use Dolphin on iPhone and iPad. I had the Adblock turned on for the iPad but not the iPhone.

    Dolphin is my favorite web browser.

    It is my normal experience.

    I don't use adblock on this site as I want to support it.

    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.

    Just tried on my Android phone where I have no ad blocker and one time clicking a link brought up an ad, but only once. Never saw that before today.

    It only happens when I turn AdBlock Plus off that is necessary to gain access to many news sites I use here. I don't mind it now and then if it helps finance the site.

    Yes, its been going on for a while.
    There is a previous thread on the issue.

    I have ad-blocker but still get force fed the ad before having to x it to get to the notification or post.

    Sometimes , after dismissing the ad, a vbulletin notice appears telling you you dont have permission to view the page.
    Hitting the back button will return you to the forum.

    I'll do some research and see if I can find out anything.
