OMG ditto. To the point where Im not on Weddingbee as much because this site has become such a pain in the ass. The ads slow things way down and then the plug in crashes, even typing this there is a lag between what Im typing and what is showing up in the box.

The pop-ups have been driving me insane….it seems like every time I open this site or click on a thread, boom….Martha Stuart’s face pops-up….

Yes, it’s been awful. I ended up accidentally downloading malware to my computer that was a pain to uninstall from some pop-up that was from this site. The lag has been atrocious, as well!

llevinso:  Yes, Home Depot and Martha Stewart! Ugh! And the yellow bar at the top of the page about the shockwave or plug-ins! Super annoying. I’ve had it on two completely different computers. Only on this site. So annoying!

Yes, I agree. On the computer it’s those stupid Martha Stewart ads or home depot ads and on the phone it’s pop up sites. It’s terrible.

Adblock on computer + 1Blocker on phone and I’ve never had any issues. 

This site is pretty slow to load though which is annoying.

Same here. Only while on my desktop, mobile site seems fine. Makes everything run slow, has pop ups that navigate me to a download, makes my typing delayed, and has shockwave stoped responding banners pop up.  Only on this site. Started a couple weeks ago! I know I don’t have any viruses, as i t does it on my work PC too, which is monitored with virus protection.

I actually have TWO content blockers installed on my phone…and still sometimes get irritating pop-ups here. Yes, really! It’s frustrating.

llevinso:  YES! Me too! I have several virus blockers and this site keeps trying to get me to update/install Adobe Flash Player (even though I am using chrome) and every time the link at the top is wrong for actual Adobe downloads and it starts to download and then my pc alerts me of a virus/malware that is trying to install. And the Disney, Martha Stewart and home depot crap keeps freezing up my page. It’s so irritating. I wish they would find a way to do less intrusive ads.
