    I don't recall seeing any ads (or adds - unabbreviated version=additions?). Maybe my Adblock+ stomps on them.

    No, Johnny's right. Stinking Google Adsense ads. I see them now on my Kindle's Silk browser. The one ad for the Yellow Jackets or the guitar supply store was fine, but I don't need top, middle, sides, and bottom slathered in animated ads.

    Has been an adblock+ user so long that when I go to use these sites at a public library or friend's computer, I get shocked at all the ad vertisements I never see.

    I get the site costs money, but are small static ads too much to ask for? I mean the stupid flashing one's I'm getting aren't even relevant to the site or anything I'm interested in....

    The Sweetwater one I'm more OK with..... Just not flashing

    There use to be ads for people that were not logged in, but once you logged in they went away. As of today there are ads added to the side of the page and at the top even when I'm logged in. The worst part is that the ads are not responsive, meaning that they do not scale with the rest of the page so the scroll all the way across and shrink my Android screen to where it too small to read and the banner is the full width of the page. Alex may lose a lot of viewers to this site with the way these ads freak out cell phones.

    I am not getting that. This also happens if you have been hacked with a download of adware, right Wav? I remember having popular shopping words automatically underlined with a link in my browser after getting adware on my computer.

    Check your most recently installed programs for something weird.

    Maybe they are location-specific.
