.. to watch the pop up Videos that have re-appeared on this site.

They now obscure the bottom right hand corner and the page scrolls behind it until you close it, but re-appears as soon as you change pages. I can't think it has any benefit as it is so annoying that (in my case) it gets shut down everytime it appears

It's a pain. Overkill.

Those sort of ads are counter productive. That's why there are ad blockers mine are showing 210 blocked on this page alone.

I use Adblock Plus which allows me to read the sites without unobtrusive ads but also allows some ads so I can click on some to help the site get revenue to continue.

Isn't that how spammers get their income?

Irritating, autorunning and intrusive videos together with very distracting animated, often flashing ads, are why I started to use adblocking.

I've started to turn off Javascript in my browser settings [once again] for this site except when posting something to it.

The site is a total mess and the intrusive advertising would make me avoid the products/services being promoted.

The current one seems to be able to swerve Adblocker+.

I use the combined efforts of the Opera adblocker and Adblock (not plus). Between them they do a good job.

Just installed AdBlock and the bottom right corner no longer gives me a headache. Interestingly, AdBlock Plus is showing 144 hits on this page to AdBlock's 63.
