I think everyone understands that...but this one is different.
It makes navigating the site very difficult

That having been said, as of this morning, it’s gone again

What a dick answer.

Yes smarta$$, ADS are expected... but, are ads that take up the entire screen and don't allow you to navigate in the browser expected when they've never been present before for going on 16-17 years?

RE: Root Insurance
Please read this post from the Sun Belt board:



Quote:Hello, I'm Paul and I'm part of the team that helps manage the advertising on the site. I want to apologize for the annoyance, and thank everyone for their reports.

This creative that sticks to the bottom of the page should *not* be appearing on the site. It seems to be served as part of a standard display banner. We have a debug tool to report bad ads, however I'm not sure it will help because the bad ad is piggybacking on a legitimate one. However I'd like to try anyways. For any of you who are seeing this ad, can you please open this link below? It will add a small badge to the very bottom right hand corner of the page if you scroll all the way down to the footer. If you see the creative again, click the badge and submit a report. Hopefully it will capture enough information to narrow down the source.

Any additional info you can provide like your device, state, etc.. could also be helpful.

Thanks everyone

RE: Root Insurance
The damned Root insurance ad is now showing up on the online version, as well. It prevents you from clicking on anything on the page until you hit the "X"

I'm using Chrome browser on a Windows 10 PC.
