Exactly. I was actually about to post something. Was looking for the right forum. It is so annoying. and timed perfectly with the launch of the new products.
Very disappointing. The whole page (even white spaces) have adlink.
Hope this gets sorted for we unfortunate UK Mac Rumors visitors. It's a visually offensive front page – two whacking great sidebar ads (left column and right column, both seemingly bulked up on steroids) for Windows 10 products, plus 'masthead'-style Windows ad at top of page before it eventually disappears (and with an associated awful Twitter-feed style piece of adcrap to further jangle the eyeballs). The two sidebar ads remain there, stubbornly, bullying the life out of the Mac Rumors content. Very dispiriting to see such crass commercial trolling, so badly done. (Badly done? Hey, isn't that why I chose not to use Windows in the first place?)
Okay, after a few days respite those awful sidebar ads (it's all Lenovo now) are back and making Mac Rumors a rather dissatisfying experience.
Why are there PC ads on a Mac forum anyway? That seems to be either trolling or very poor judgment indeed.
Furthermore, it's ugly, really vulgar looking and cheap. So, an all-round FAIL, then.
It's either time for an ad blocker on my Mac (which subverts the Mac Rumors business model of course) if I can find one that I don't fear will steal my info. Or I just become an infrequent visitor to the forum – I don't respond well to crass commercialism.
