ღ i just use adblock because this is a shared laptop, and my father installed it. i have no idea how to turn it off.
i don't think i'd turn it off even if i could though. i get bombarded with those talking ones, and it's really irksome when i'm listening to music in another tab and i can't get that darn ad to shut up.
I've been a Cash user for years. Never bothered to get AdBlock or any other ads, since more often than not I don't have speakers on in the first place... also, I rarely see actual invasive ads. We had them for a short while, but I think users reported them enough that the bulk of them were removed.
Not gonna get AdBlock. The actual ads don't bother me at all.
If you think about it, Gaia does stop putting up ads for a month if you spend more than 250GC in a month. So maybe it's their way of saying "spend a little, stop getting ads" by posting an announcement for the CS.
