My macbook pro late 2011 sierre os is taken over by ads again. Reading an article, it jumps all over as ads populate. How do you get rid of these?

Check your browser settings. I use Safari and I use content blocker extension Ka-block. It stops the ads.

The AUP prohibits discussion of blocking ads on this site, but for blocking ads on sites other than this one, I like uBlock Origin. :)
why does it prohibit discussion of ad blocking?

If you're having a lot of trouble with ads, get an ad-blocking extension for Safari. https://safari-extensions.apple.com/details/?id=com.kablock.osx-UYW4V22L7E
I have always used firefox - is there something for that one?

Install free Malwarebytes and do manual scan:

https://www.malwarebytes.com

which will find and offer to remove any adware which has got installed.

Google it to see that it is highly respected in the Mac world, and has twice removed adware from the machines of someone I support.

but this is a computer help forum!
They can't keep the forum up and running if there's no money to pay for domains, servers, software etc. These things aren't free and just because YOU (or any of us) don't pay to be on the website doesn't mean it doesn't cost something to operate it.
