I get the need for advertisements, but what can be done about the pop up add that doesn't go away after it plays. I have an Asics add that pops up on my iPhone whenever I try to access the discussion board.

@multijumps Well, you must be carrying your computer around judging by your presence on the forum! I have to say your posts are well written and well thought out. My conclusion would be that since you don't have a smart phone you must be very old and wise. Well, old at least.... haha

@altimari Yeah, I am frustrated with it. I have been asking our ad folks to take care of that problem for past week. It's only supposed to run those regular, flat, non-intrusive ads. For some reason it's running the wrong unit. Anyway, I am on their case about it but I think tomorrow I am going to have our developers simply pull the top ad unit off of the forum completely to brute force remedy the situation. Sorry for the annoyance.

Thanks Jason. Trying not to sound like a whiner. I just use the iPhone more than the iPad.

@altimari I know you're not. The user experience on mobile when those ads were displayed made the forum unusable. Literally. So it's not acceptable. Our developers removed the top ad unit from the forum pages this morning until we're sure we have a firm grasp on only non-intrusive ads there.
