    What is going on with this metro pcs ad on the mobile site? It comes up every time I load a new page on the forum and I swipe it down to get rid of it is there a way to close it?

    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.

    This site is messed up with the new metro add using chrome and mobile mode.I can't click on anything and the site freezes and hangs and then you scroll the add but even after you see it you can't click on anything and nothing works right.

    Even me replying to this post was impossible in mobile mode because of the add.

    The metro pcs ad is probably the most annoying ad I've experienced on a smartphone. It loads on every single page and makes browsing the site unpleasant. Please remove it

    Agreed. I understand the need for ads, but this is one of the most intrusive ones I've ever seen.

    Almost as bad as the VoiceFive ad on the man site.

    I find that scrolling it down when it appears is more effective.

    I don't mind ads, but this one is ridiculous. I actually came to this section just to complain about it, and found that there's already been a thread made about it. (I never come to this section)

    This ad comes up while you're scrolling down the forum, and you have to scroll if all the way back down to get rid of it. Don't want to associate this forum to an inconvenience like this. Please get rid of it.

    This is probably the worst mobile site ad I have ever seen. It's huge, blocks tons of content and can't easily be dismissed.

    I don't even live in a MetroPCS market.

    Seriously guys, this ad needs to be revised and be less ignorant.

    Extremely annoying, makes the mobile browsing unuseable. Please remove.

    Please get rid of this thing. MR is now impossible to navigate without it constantly appearing everytime the page refreshes.

    This ad has been driving me so crazy today. Makes it almost impossible for me to use the site and I find myself going to other sites instead of MR for my quick news fix.

    Nope, still present on every single page. Not worth even continuing to visit to see if it's gone.

    Re-affirming that the ad is still present. Please remove, extremely intrusive.

    Get rid of scrolling ads or close your website! NO ONE WANTS IT!!!!!

    This is the worst I've ever seen. No one would click the banner on purpose. I'd rather pay than have to view ads!
