Adverts blocking Text

I understand the need for adverts on the web site and dont have a problem with that. My little gripe however is that when I click onto a subject there is a strip of an advert which blocks the text down the right hand side and I cant read everying the poster is saying.

Is it my settings or do you suffer from this too?

I used to get the same, like you I understand the need for the adverts but when they cover the text I've sadly had to block them, which defeats the object of them.

You will probably find that in the Post where the adverts cover the text, there is a long URL within the Post which is the cause of this phenomenon.

That is why it is always best to use click here for long URL's which overcomes this nuisance.
