Its time to rant about ads again...
For the longest time i have complained about ads on this site, they are extremely low quality , break the mobile experience completely (You get forcefully redirected to other sites without clicking on anything because GaG doesn't check there ad providers at all) are full of scam sites and now with the automatically playing video of the day ads are extremely obnoxious and will eat my daily data plan on mobile instantly.
Instead of listening to the users GAG will do more and more agressive ads each and every update. When comparing this to any other site the only site that matches the amount of ads are illegal download and streaming sites. Way to go gag!
Infact it has gotten so redicilous that if you click on a clickbait ad on here, the site that is clearly designed to have low quality content and bring clicks in has less ads then the GaG page i was just on!
So its really time to stop this nonsense. Eigther by providing you the content that powers your site or by finally having you remove these redicilous ads. Keep in mind i am an AD free user, so technically this doesn't effect me (Otherwise i would have suspended account long ago). But with this post i'd like to encourage everyone to stop posting any usefull opinions and suspend there accounts if GaG refuses to listen.
The story of, this is how the site makes money is bullshit. No other site needs this obsessive amount of ads to survive. I rather have an option to never get that amazon giftcard and have a reasonable amount of ads then to be completely spammed with more ads then content.
So in short, no more automatically playing video or audio ads. No more mgid (The worst one), no more taboola full page ads. No more forcefull mobile takeovers with scams. No more scam ads in general such as Anastasia Beauties, Binary option trading etc.
- Obnoxious ads are fine as long as i get that amazon card (And i do not adblock)Vote A
- These ads are unacceptable, i will suspend my account if this continuesVote B
- These ads are unacceptable, i will never turn off my adblocking softwareVote C
- The ads are fine, stop whining (Yes i logged off of the site and checked it on mobile and desktop)Vote D

Honestly, yes it's ridiculous! I was on my parents desktop computer and tried to log in to GAG and I was having one heck of a time. Ads kept popping up before I even had a chance to log in. Also, on my phone it's even worse. Now I get, my phone is old. It's a Samsung Galaxy 3. It's ready to kick the bucket. But it makes it impossible for people to log in sometimes.
I've also had random ads appear when logged in occasionally. Not sure what that's about either.0

This website isn't useable without adblock. Let me show you what I found. here's how much resources just 1 tab of GaG uses.
