New thing on the forum. Little advertising videos popping up on every page I visit here. It only happens on this forum. 16 New annoying video distractions downloaded onto my phone's limited data plan in this session alone. Is this happening for everyone or is this something my phone company did? Really annoying which seems to be the only purpose to advertising these days. Big secret for the fools paying to annoy people like that... these are the companies I'll never do business with.

Depends on your browser and it’s settings. I use Brave set to “allow non intrusive adds” never seen a pop up auto play here.

Do you have an ad blocker installed on your phone? Android or Apple?
On computer once logged in zero ads.
On android phone with ad blocker plus installed zero ads, but haven't done any KJC phone ads check lately.

I disabled javascript and they went away along with some other stuff. Leaves the site acting a little wonky but I'd rather be wonked than annoyed.

I use the Brave browser or an adblocker so I haven't noticed them yet. It *****, but an adblocker would definitely help.
