WordPress and Ads

Dear Readers: You may find that when you read articles on this site, you are bombarded with ‘gross ads’, pop-up ads and ads that seem to be inserted into the articles. (I know because I’m getting this too.) This is not caused by the WordPress site. WordPress screens out pop-ups and malware within its own system. The ads are coming from predatory ad companies that insert tracking bugs into your Browser, and then spam you with gross ads and pop-ups.

You can block the ads using an ad blocker, an extension that is added to your browser. There are ad blockers for iOS Safari and Chrome:

Adblock Plus for iOS Safari; it’s free:

(I installed it on my Mac laptop and it works great. Use the ‘allow Acceptable Ads’ mode; it gets rid of ugly ads but doesn’t suppress other functions in your browser.)

For Chrome, there’s AdBlock:

Install at your own risk! (But don’t worry, it works just fine.)
