I am a total "techno-moron" But even I found it an easy , one time, download to put Adblocker plus, on my computer, thus letting me enjoy fast loading times and no annoying ads. Some people need to do a bit for themselves and quit crying about stuff. Casual or not, if a person has the time to get on here and read even just a few threads, then they have the time to do a one time download that only takes a few minutes, and then enjoy faster downloading with no ads. The adblocker plus works for your entire computer, so it will work on other sites with annoying ads, and believe me there are a lot of sites out there with those ads. And for the record, the "old" system had them too. I've used ad blocker plus since I joined HPA. No problems. If you really want to get on a site that says you can't because of your adblocker, it takes only a minute or less to turn off the blocker,effective for only that site. Now, that all said, I do feel that if there are ads, they should be related to what HPA is and stands for, not some vacation trip to some far off land, but since I don't see any of those, I really don't know what all annoying ads are getting on HPA.
I gotta go agitate the techies!
