   Kono  Oy! The ads on the mother site seem to have gone from annoying to harassing. When the page is scrolled, the side bar ads scroll themselves back into view. Together with the ads embedded in the site content (which do scroll with the content ), they're becoming the dominant feature of the page, more so than the content, itself.

That might not be so insufferable if the ads, themselves, weren't among the grossest caricatures of stupid tabloid trash, good f***ing grief!!!

   StormCnter  I just ignore them, Kono. With other news sites demanding adblockers be disabled before we can view anything, the Lucianne site isn't any worse than those. It's just too much trouble to go through all the steps to eliminate the Lucianne ads and then the steps frequently have to be repeated next time.

   Kono  I appreciate your effort to talk me off the ledge (metaphorically speaking ), StormCntr.

Maybe you can just ignore them, even though they counter every move of the window to get back into the center of view. But I can't. They're as bad as the embedded videos on sites like sfgate or DM (which fly to the screen's corner if scrolled out of view, and if closed there by the user, retreat to their original place in PLAY mode, requiring another insistent GO AWAY click to stop them (pause ).

A $50/year subscription to an ad-free experience here would be well worth it. But that option isn't offered. Resistance is futile.

   Escaped commieny  What are using for a browser ?? I use Firefox with Adblock Plus and all permissions denied and never have any ads. Do you have the little i in a circle ( info ) click and deny permissions. Just block every thing.We covered this months ago, you may have to scroll way down on the Tech Issue wall. I rarely check in, for a few favorite posters, but occasionally see who are having trouble so hope that wall helps.

   Texastealady  I'm here today for just this reason. Haven't been here in awhile and wanted to see if anyone else HATES those ads! Worse, one of those sites thinks I'm a man "seeking a ____woman" Fill in the blank, today it's an Arab woman in Portland which is a small town about 40 miles from where I live. Ye Gods! FIRST I'm a W O M A N and I like/love men. It's driving me crazy = oh, and my browser is Firefox and I have uBlock Origin and Adblock Plus and AdBlocker Ultimate for good measure. PUHLEESE HELP!!!!

   Tundrarider  Oh YES! Thank you Safetydude! My friend wore pearls today in honor of Mrs. Bush - - Why didn't I think of that? - - Anyhow, I told her about this picture and couldn't find it anywhere.

Thank you! Thank you!

   Tundrarider  I am trying to find the 'cartoon' that was in the must reads yesterday or the day before. It was a US flag with a string of pearls where the field of stars would be.

Can anyone help me find that? Thanks.

   RedWhiteBlue  I'm having a difficult time bringing up articles on the mother page of Lucianne. Is anyone experiencing the same? I click on an article and the page goes blank. I've halted the adblocker, etc. Is it just me?

   Tulsa  No problems for me using the Brave or Firefox browser. I have adblock plus on in FF. Not necessary in Brave.

   StormCnter  RedWhiteBlue, I am hoping your problem was temporary. Sometimes I find pieces on Lucianne very slow to load and sometimes they won't load at all. I haven't gotten the blank page, but that sounds like a loading glitch. If you are still getting the blank pages, try rebooting your computer, even though I don't think the problem is with your computer if other sites are loading properly. You can always email me for a further discussion if you want.

PS - I have had a problem just today with the New York Daily News defaulting to an ad instead of showing me the front page. I enabled AdBlock for the site and the problem was fixed.

   Doublesharp  What's up with not permitting posts from The Conservative Treehouse site? I hope this is a mistake but a recent CTH thread was closed and staff said CTH is no longer an approved site. Very misguided imho. Sundance and CTH are doing yeoman's work in helping to drain the swamp.
