Hello @el24519877, I shared your feedback with the Ad Team and they were able to adjust the ads so you won't see them as frequently. Hope this helps. Please let us know if you experience this again. Thank you for posting in our Online Community.

@intersan,

 

First, the games platform had ads well before November 2016. I added AdBlock Plus several years ago.

 

As I said previously, I have been playing the games ad-free for years with the AdBlock Plus added to my Firefox browser so whoever told you that the games would not be accessible with ADBlock Plus lied to you.

They are long and intrusive. Whatever happened to the one where you can skip it in 4 seconds?

@el24519877,

 

Load AdBlock Plus onto your browser and those ads will be history.

 

I did it several years ago and have not had an ad since.

 

I am computer illiterate and AdBlock Plus was easy to load onto my browser.

 

AARP had some kind of security issue several years ago on their ads platform because I got ads from TATA BUILDERS (a company in India), got a 13 minute gross video from PETA regarding the killing of animals hosted by Paul MacCartney, got videos that individuals had posted selling all sorts of odd items (I think they were youTube videos), and AARP never admitted there was a hack into their ad platform. They did admit that there were ads that had appeared on their platform that were "unauthorized". I guess that's what their attorneys told them to say.

 

Those ads NEVER appeared anywhere else other than AARP's web site.

 

But AdBlock Plus made all these ads history.

 

Of course, read about and research it before you install it.
