    I just got a Goodyear ad on the MacRumors home page that obscured the page on my iPhone/Safari. At first I loaded the home page then a location usage warning pops up. Out of curiosity, I accept and then the Goodyear ad takes over the page. There's no way to close the ad without refreshing it. Frustrating to say the least.

    Nothing is more annoying than pop-up ads or ads that cover the whole page.

    This is becoming a very frequent thing across the web nowadays. They couldn't get you to click on flashy banner ads, so now they obscure the entire site with an ad. The worst are the ones that make it nearly impossible to find the "X".

    Mod note:

    As per the forum rules under the section "Things not to do", #12, Don't discuss blocking ads on the site.

    From the FAQ

    What do I do about annoying ads?
    MacRumors uses an advertising service that supplies ads from a pool. We do not select the specific ads shown or the specific advertisers who participate.

    If you find a particular ad especially annoying (e.g., an ad that is oversized, obscures the page, moves around, or has sound), let us know by posting a screenshot in our Site and Forum Feedback forum and telling us the URL it links to. Using this information we can ask to have it removed from the ad pool.

    If you find all ads annoying, remember that ads support the site and allow us to provide free news, rumors, and discussion, and that ads are suppressed for paid members. See How do I contribute to MacRumors.com? above.

    Sorry about that. Anyway nothing turns me off to a site that shows full screen ads.

    That's okay. But now you know how to report those annoying ads to us so we can remove them. :)
