I use Adblock (Free) with Google Chrome and don't get any ads at all.

The Forum is on the left side of the screen with a white area down the right side, but using Ctrl with the scrollwheel enlarges the screen which makes it easier to read and eliminates some of the white area.

"Is there anything I can add to that list that will stop them" yes this is the filter to add:

/adsense/*

Sorry about the delay in getting back to you but that seemed to do the trick.

It has got rid of the Ad's and so far so good.

Thank You.

I just ignore them, they can be funny sometimes though, depending on the title of the original post.

If it is not supposed to be there I will remove it.

Just wonder if PCA allow it or is it just a free advertising ploy by Google.

Google doesn't sneak the AdSense units on to the page. We share the revenue with Google if someone clicks on the ads.

They might even be useful for you. For instance, the ones I can see now include ads for ad blockers – answering the original question.

By the way, it's all very well moaning about ads and installing ad blockers but it restricts our ability to monetise the site and so fund the forum. We also need to pay our developers, writers, receptionist, etc!

In Germany the extensive use of adblockers means publishers are seriously considering installing paywalls to monetise their sites in the absence of advertising revenue – taking the cost back to the reader.
