    Do they still have the scantily clad women/crotch shot ads?

    Some of those are worse than anything I've ever posted.

    I mean come on. I've never complained about the ads. I know ya gotta pay the bills. But when the ad essentially takes over and disables the site for 15-20 sec......that's a little overboard in my worthless opinion.

    I can disable ads that slip through like this. I don't want stuff like that on here either. But I need to know more because I haven't seen it. What does it do that is so annoying?

    It's a full page ad that lasts 15+ seconds. ie: you can't see RM at all, and you can't bypass it.....(though it does give you the option to "replay ad")
