    We're hoping that the shouty ads may have disappeared but would like some help in confirming this. To that end, can you let us know if you've seen anything since approx 0800A this morning. Nil reports also required pse

    Sighting Report format is:

    • DTG
    • Page - link pse
    • Nature of ad, i.e gaviscon, weird Americans, etc
    • Browser you're using, IE9, Chrome, Firefox
    • Any special extensions or settings you're using to block tracking cookies

  3. I've had my first one at work this morning, sorry no idea what it was as I adblocked it but it still kept playing so I muted it.
  4. Nothing at the moment Dad. I've just taken it off mute though, so am waiting for someone to tell me about the benefits of Nurofen Extra.

  5. About the same as normal Nurofen,you just pay extra for the placebo effect. 8)

    Still getting crap adverts prior to this.

    Just had one as I clicked through the last 50 page. Didn't get the details because I'd already clicked by.

    To get these I found I have to disable 3rd party cookies, delete all browsing history and use my Linux laptop. I think that makes the ad wizardry decide that I'm just not worth serving worthwhile ads to and I get the shit ones. If anyone can give the level of info Bad CO has then it would be really appreciated.
  11. Same here.
