Post Ads make the site unusable
original title: "Reclames maken de site onbruikbaar"


Hoi!

Ik vermaak me prima met de puzzles. Daarom heb ik ook mijn adblocker gedisabled voor deze site. Ik ben best bereid de advertenties te laten komen.
Echter de laatste tijd komen er steeds meer filmpjes die mijn browser zeer vertragen tot niet meer reageren aan toe.
Nu draait er eentje die de hele tijd met een error komt waardoor mijn browser helemaal niet meer reageert.

Nogmaals, ik wil best de advertenties bekijken, zelfs de get rich quick dingen, echter doe aub wat aan de vertragingen...

Groeten!

A short translation for the English speakers: lately more and more ads are videos,
slowing down the browser a lot. Now there's a video ad that generates an error,
causing the browser to stop responding.


I'll look into this, thanks for reporting. Even though I block a lot of categories,
specified familiy-friendly ads only, no pop-ups, no pop-unders, no sound, etc.,
somehow my ad providers "forget" this from time to time :-(

Martijn: can you maybe email me a screenshot of the "broken" ad?

I've now sent an inquiry about this to my primary ad provider.
(and sent them the screenshot)

I also use a 2nd "backup" provider, but video ads have been disabled for that account.

Will let you know as soon as I know more.

The ad provider in question ("Pulsepoint") still hasn't replied (!)

I also now received reports that some ads are "pop-ups" which I have explicitly disabled everywhere [cursing]

It's driving me up the wall that my ad settings are conveniently "forgotten" time and time again :(
