Default Stupid Pop-up watch video adds

What's going on with the Stupid Pop-up watch video adds?

They are screwing-up the threads. Difficult to read now. Blocks overlap text.

I'm not having issues either, and I leave the ads turned on all the time. Can you provide a bit more info? There are a newer type of ad that requires you to hover your mouse over them, and if you do so long enough it'll bring up a popped up ad.

Yup...

I'm using Opera. Just put in AB+, and free breathing has been restored.

What a relief!

Oops, I spoke too soon.

In the very first post in thread "Simple, Cheap Solar Water Heater is Made From Recycled Bottles"

Below the close up pic. of the bottles is a Play Video of NBA add.

Am I the only one seeing this krap?

I can ignore adds, but these block reading text in threads.

I think it is a manifestation of your cyber-karma.

You have sinned.
