I don't see ads when I use SP. I use Google Chrome with the Adblocker extension. Try it, it does work and you don't have to pay for it.

I noticed those Green Giant distractions yesterday, too.
I had to scroll up and down before it finally gave the CLOSE X option at the top so I could continue.

Hurrah! This morning the ads covering the part of the area where we enter our food logs is clear of the ads. Thank you Facebook! Ahhhh... much better.

I agree. The expanding ads are a pain in the butt, and so are the pop up ones on SparkRecipes.

agreed! I have been on and off this site for many years, but most recently came back on last month and was floored at the increase in ads that interfered with getting things done...

I agree 110%!!! That Green Giant ad is a nightmare and causes me to spend double the amount of time just trying to get my food entered!

I have that problem when I try to post sometimes. The ad at the side moves over top of the window I type the reply in and sometimes I can get it to move back and sometimes I just close the window out and start over.

Boy, do I agree with you there. I had an awful time logging things in today. I would try to close the pop-up ad, and it kept opening up again. SP shouldn't let this happen.

I understand the need to have ads on this free site. However, the recent Green Giant ad is covering the "favorite" foods in my tracker interfering with my ability to log my foods. I love Sparkpeople and would hate to leave this site, however, covering the tools we use is over the top. Please fix!
