    You are correct. I went to the page to sign on as a platnium supporter and it indicates this will be ad free and will happen soon.

    Some of the pop-ups block access to the inbox and alerts tabs, so you are basically phucked trying to click on the second alert.

    This is analogous to a bar and tity joint moving in next the church and daycare center, the neighborhood is gone.

    I know it’s frustrating, but tfo is the only church, I hope the adds problem gets taken seriously by the administrators.

    So I have to pay to not be bogged down with adds? These adds are driving me crazy! not much fun anymore. More of a hassel than any other forum I frequent.

    Same here. I usually use the mobile site and the ads are either in between each reply or every other reply when I read a thread.

    I generally avoid accessing TFO on my laptop anymore because of the annoying ads ... I use Tapatalk on my phone and never see a single ad.

    There are ads in the app, but they’re not intrusive. I only use the website if I really have to.
