Is it an Ad or a whole page?!? Answered

To me, this ad seems absolutely intrusive. I'm not too sure if bigger is better in this case....

A better question might be why you (and I) are seeing it at all...

I see this quite often, and had the same thought - this is a ridiculous ad, the type I fully expect my membership to pay for me NOT to see.

I see it as well. It links to the site of the author that made the snail art car selling fire pits. At least that's what it linked to when I saw it a few times. It may change around.

Oh good it's not just me! The 'ibles ads are totally fine, but an ad on this size is just ridiculous!

Why don't any of you have adblock installed?

1. We shouldn't need it, since one of the benefits of "pro" is that we shouldn't see things like this. 2. I do, and I still see it.

I've got an ad blocker, but when I wasn't "pro" I unblocked Instructable's ads because they provide them some income.

they supply income if you click them or not, its not google adsense. Instructables is paid a certain amount of money based on there popularity to display a certain size add on a certain area of there site. I mean if all of a sudden everyone in the world used adblock then maybe we might have to fear but as long as there are computer illeterates website adds will be lucrative

You have sound argument, and I will not try to convince you otherwise.

What Kiteman said. And instead of taking away what little revenue I'bles gets from ads (by blocking them), why not support the site directly? Or are you just hoping the site goes under and goes away?

Something is setup wrong. I'll investigate. If you are seeing it, are you located in California? It's supposed to be CA-only.

I think I've figured out how it was showing up for pro members. Let me know if you continue to see it. I still can't figure out why it would show up in the UK.

Actually, I'm beginning to see them more and more often now. I've seen it 10-20 times in the past few days.

Off-the-wall, but would the age of the browser have anything to do with it?

When I saw the ad, I was using a borrowed laptop with a relatively old version of FF.

I'll try and find the stuff about limiting things over Internet to distances, it's based on the speed of light and cancel commands
