Jumping Thread List

Every time I pull up MTF as soon as it loads I pick in interesting thread, hit it and...the advertisement makes the list jump and I hit the next one up. I think it is waiting for me to click the mouse to finish.

Install Ad block plus. ( or another if you want)
https://adblockplus.org/

Free download
Works for me as I never see an ad.

There are some who say they like the ad's because they help the site.
Not me I hate the ad's anywhere. Ad's come on the TV I just channel surf. Same for the radio.
Think about it we are bombarded by ad's everywhere you go !
Everywhere.

Adblock plus works for me.

Because no one would stay and read the ads, and the advertisers would pull their money out.....

It's all about the money.....

unfortunately, it's ads that pay for the site, as well as the admins, plus -ahem- a bit of profit .. doesn't mean that you can't get around them though ..

Wait a few seconds for ad blocks on the page to resize to the ads in them. Just takes a little patience. Or you could install an ad blocker, but as wvgca points out, ads pay for the internet, and if everyone blocks them, then we'll all end up paying for it in one way or another.

mine also 'jumps' a bit with the ad blocker enabled, but it settles down in a second or two ..
