There's also now a huge video advert for a lawnmower that autoplays, can't be closed, can't be scrolled past. On mobile
It happens occasionally, without warning. If I have my phone in horizontal mode it occupies the entire screen for the length of the advert after which it disappears and the regular content can be viewed. But it's not predictable and can't be closed. If it starts up when you're trying to press something it'll take you to their website, and even if you're just trying to read someone else's reply it's ridiculously intrusive.
Please fix this
And if I'm holding the screen vertically it cuts off about half of the view whilst also playing distracting moving pictures, so not brilliant either. This seems to happen occasionally - most of the time you open a new page, but it even repeats every so often without changing page. Very annoying.
We are repeatedly having issues with the advertiser services that this site is using. As others have said there's also an accessibility problem with certain browsers when trying to get through the "Accept cookies" page that is sometimes not able to be closed.
