Massive Adverts!

As of today I'm seeing massive 970x250 adverts between posts and a small one at the top of each page (don't care about that one).

There is a little icon by my name that shows I contribute to the running of EAB.
My last donation was 20 EUR was confirmed on 18 Oct.

This is really not good

Yup, I'm getting them too.

Funny thing is, if I logout / login again then they disappear for a while...

This behaviour with adverts is usually what guests see, not registered / logged in members.

Good to know it isn't just me, I was wondering what the hell happened.

I switched on Adblock. Won't be donating again unless this is sorted.

Patience nogginthenog.

I have some temporary work arounds.

1. Open a private/incognito session on your chosen browser, log in and you will see the ads no longer appear.

2. Use mobile skin

3. Click the x on the advert and report it as inapproriate. Refresh and do it again until Google run out of ads to show you. Be warned, this may take time.

It's really strange because I didn't change anything about ads.
I think that google activated auto-ads to whole abime.net without my agreement.
I will fix that.

I'm browsing from my phone, so maybe it's a desktop thing only?
