Irritating Ad Format

This morning is the first time I’ve noticed it. I can click the X to make it go away, or click the arrow to roll it up. I’d prefer not to see this style of ads, as it reloads on every single page I go through. 
 

I primarily view AUF with Safari on my iPhone. I’ve tried clearing my history and website data already.

Hmmm not really sure what the ask is.  We have to have a business model to make this site sustainable.

I was unsure if there was a way to disable this particular ad. I don’t mind the others, but having a popup drop down ad is distracting.

It's obnoxious on chrome mobile as well. Constantly having to minimize in order to click on site buttons, or check notifications as seen here:

Yup same here. It’s horrendous and makes it very difficult to click on notifications. I’d join a patreon (sp) account paying like $10 per month to not have something like this.

Yep. You have to dismiss the ad or roll it up to view notifications.

That’s what I have to do there. The tab and notification bell are so close for my fat fingers.

I think what the issue is Red is that the dropdown on any mobile app drops down every page, even if you already minimized it.  That can also be a hassle because it blocks entirely the upper right hand corner so you cannot see what messages or notifications you have.  Does that make sense?

Now THAT is annoying on this forum of all places.  🤢
