I hate to be that guy, but I'm tired of having my device hijacked by these stupid ads. I get that it is a revenue stream to support the site. But seriously, you have to do a better job of blocking this crap. I eventually give up and leave. That defeats the purpose of an ad.

I agree!
What I have found that works is to "request desktop version" when on your mobile. You will never see those again.

Have also found that the Canary version (beta) of Chrome will block them. But seriously, it's just irresponsible to allow this to continue. Need corporate sponsors? How much does it take to make these go away for everyone?

On my Android device, I almost always receive the ad from Amazon- it's probably phony. When I do, I'm unable to return to dfp and have to shut the whole thing down.

Wow google adblock works, I've always had problems with the ads and website, It's 10 times faster now. Thanks

I don't think I downloaded adblock plus, I downloaded adblock. still works great/awesome. This site has always been slow and now it's fast.

Learn something new everyday. It seems Google has allowed its redirect blocking logic in Android Chrome in sort of a back door way. Paste the link below in your address bar (clicking won't work). Execute and enable the highlighted option. Then restart as it asked and you are protected. I tested mine and it flagged all kinds of redirects that would have otherwise kicked me out.

chrome://flags/#enable-framebusting-needs-sameorigin-or-usergesture

Hope this helps save someone else's sanity...mine's already gone.
