    I'm happy to disable adblock to support this site, the auto playing video add that sometimes aren't even muted are pretty annoying, but this is ridiculous, I expect this from a torrent site but surely you can get your ads from a less malicious source

    I have a slightly different comment about ads - the ones that contain video on this site appear to severely slow down my browser (Firefox). If I leave this forum open in a tab, soon enough everything else starts to chug. YouTube videos, iPlayer, etc. It doesn't happen every time, but I'm sure it is always this site causing the slow-down (i.e. when it does happen, I close this tab and everything is smooth again).

    I had the same. What helped was: go to plugins, and stop the flashplayer to be loaded everytime you start Firefox.

    Doesn't that stop the ads from playing altogether?

    @Chris Kennedy just checking in to see if this message has returned? Seems that even google as has issues with advertisers as you aren't the only one reporting this. Google product forums have a sticky about re-directs. Pretty shameful if you ask me.
