Video ad in corner

What's with the annoying video ad in the corner every time one opens a new page? I know the website needs advertisers, but this is truly annoying. I don't even feel like continuing on to a new page.

^ I think he is referring to the one you see when you're not logged in and are reading a thread page (showthtead.php). Best way to get rid of these is to sign up and stay logged in.

I don't see anything like this, logged in or not.

But it's worse - every page has an infinite amount of ads - you cannot scroll to the bottom (footer) of any page, there are always more ads and more ads and more ads...

Forums like ours need ad incomes to survive unfortunately, but as Jan said just log in the whole time when we are on line, why are people afraid to do so? I have never logged out even before I became a mod.

Those ads are not appropriate (images of half naked women and guns are NSFW). Yes you can log in to hide them, but you shouldn't have to. I sent an e-mail couple of weeks ago using the Contact Us form to raise this without any reply, so I raised a complaint with Taboola Ads today. Hopefully they'll be able to sort this out.
