forced to have the videos

I am getting fed up with the videos that pop up on every new page. Why are we forced to have them? I know its easy to delete them (Until the next page!) but I like to choose what I have on my computer. I will soon do without the site altogether.

I'm very pleased to see that you've decided to stay. It would be nice to be surrounded by lots of familiar usernames when we celebrate our twenty years online.

It will surely be a record for a web forum.

Just noticed this link on the side bar regarding blocking ads.

Is this not having one's cake and eating it...?

I mainly use Edge browser, and have started using uBlock Origin [get it from Edge extensions tab & windows store free]. Works a treat on here & other ad-riddled sites.

:Thanks for the link bremner, I think I will probably withdraw from the site"

Why? I don't get any pop-up videos, all blocked. The site runs a little slower, like it takes 1 second to load the opening page but, no video, bliss.

I am running 3 pop-up blockers and between them, they stop ALMOST everything.
