Annoying gap/Wowcher

On some threads I get a huuuuuuge gap between the thread title and the first post. There is also a one line advert for wowcher just above the first post. Is it just an annoying ad not working or my problem?

It might relate to the length of the thread title...

Yep, I've got chrome on a mac

Yep what's that about? It's been bugging me today! (I'm on a laptop, using Opera) The ads down the side are bad enough, but big ads under the thread title might be enough to push me over the edge today <easily irritated and looking for a reason to go cold turkey wrt MN>

(thanks RedJeans. And everybodysang, who psychically answered question before I'd even posed it!)

Me also.

Did an extensive test and found it only did it on "chat" threads for me.

No problem! Honestly, couldn't recommend AdBlock enough, absolutely changed my experience of the internet completely for the better, haha! Never realised quite how annoying adverts were before. And it blocks popups too

I've got AdBlock - but just got a massive space

It's only on chat.

Wowcher grin

Just wanted to say that I use Adblock on my lap top too but I turn it off to use MN.

I like MN very much want them to stay in business. If that means having a few adverts on my screen and clicking the odd one now and then I think it's a pretty small price to pay.

I like MN very much *and want them to stay in business - is how that ^^ should read.

kim147 Mon 04-Feb-13 10:04:07

It's really weird when I use other computers and suddenly see all these ads.
But I do feel guilty about blocking them when MN relies on the income.
OTOH, it makes reading the site easier.

This could be an AIBU grin

Ah good. I was going to come and have a good ol' whinge about this, but MNHQ are onto it.

Henceforth I shall remember Wowcher as the brand that fucked up MN. I'm sure they'll be happy to know that grin

hellhasnofurylikeahungrywoman Mon 04-Feb-13 10:19:51

And me. I have adblocker installed but it's not catching this one, it's driving me mad. Google Chrome here.

glad it isn't just me

foxache Mon 04-Feb-13 10:29:35

DawnOfTheDee Mon 04-Feb-13 10:37:29

It's happening to me too.....seems to be on all the chat threads. I thought none of the posts were showing and I neeeeeeeded to know people's opinions on baked beans in cottage pies, etc.

Flobbadobs Mon 04-Feb-13 10:40:51

Me too, on ipad.

mrsjay Mon 04-Feb-13 10:42:27
