First of all, I will admit that I am NOT a computer person. My question...is there any way to get rid of at least some of the ads here on my proteacher page? They've always been there on the sides but now items are actually popping up IN the posts. Just saw a reply to a question and there was a young lady in a bra at the bottom of the post! Seriously???

I'm so used to ignoring them, I don't even notice, let alone stop to read them anymore!

Is your Ad Blocker app free? I see there is one called Ad Block that costs a little. Iíd like to get the one you like.

If you click on the x or triangle in the corner of the ad you can close it and report it as inappropriate. Youíll get another ad but generally not the same type.

I have AdBlock Plus on both my ipad and my laptop. It was free. I get no ads at all on PT. I originally downloaded it to get rid of annoying ads on my Verizon Yahoo Email.

Weird, that only happens for me when I'm not signed in. When you're not signed in, you get a lot more of those ads popping up.

Yes. It was free. Norton Ad Block on the App Store.
