That was my screen today. I don’t even visit realgm because any topic I click it’s just ad galore. I can’t browse at all.
I get the need for ads but this is crazy.

As others have said the only way I can use this site right now is as blocker which I didn’t want to use

When I visit the site via mobile while simultaneously listening to music or a podcast or something, that other audio will stop. This doesn't happen with other sites/forums I visit.

I assume this is due to mobile ads playing sound? Any way to stop this? Does this happen to anyone else?

I keep getting asked about personalized ads, every time I visit a new page. It does not matter how many times I press "continue using site", next page I visit this popup at the bottom of the screen inform me about relevant ads and hides half the page content. It is super annoying, is there a way to agree once and stop seeing this message?

Why are all of these pro-Trump ads appearing on RealGM? I find them highly offensive. They belong on Fox News, not here. If these ads continue to run, I will never purchase another product or service advertised on RealGM, and I will urge others to do the same.

It would be great for there to be a paid membership level that gives you no ads, say $4/month or $40/year.

The ads here are getting more and more annoying (e.g. the banner at the bottom that stays until you X it out, even if no ad is present) and I get that the site has bills to pay; I'd rather just pay something than have a lower quality experience.

I can't fathom browsing the internet in 2020 without an ad blocker. This site was out of hand years ago with ads
