    Just as the title describes! There was no way to sign in without clicking the ad (the closeout x just brought me to the advertiser's site); the ads even moved to prevent me logging in without clicking them. I am now three ads in before one of them would finally move and allow me to enter my login info. What the frick, Talkbass?! I understand we all gotta live in the world. But this advertising is genuinely aggressive and does nothing to support the marvelous scene here or foster the capitalism these ads represent. I'm now on an extended hiatus from Home Depot and whatever else is on my recent browser history. Thoughts?

    Does this work for Android devices?

    For Android, I use Ghostery browser. Chrome, Firefox and Dolphin all have ad-block add-ons
     
  5. Ad blockers aren’t the answer. The site needs to be aware that their ads are malicious. If you’ll post your complaint in the bug report thread, you’ll garner site admin attention:
