This is very annoying, for several days now, the 'ads' on the mobile Android website show up as fake information icons.  What I mean is that there appears to be no ad, but instead what looks like a 'new message' notification on a toolbar.  Instead, it's all an ad.

Mods...any resolution on this? I understand that these ads are generating revenue, but they are preventing US users from successfully navigating the site.

That is a regular ad. What is the issue?  Are you referring to what looks like cigarette holes?

The issues are on post #7 and #8

The ads are taking up the majority of my phone screen and they really prevent me from navigating the site via my cell. There is no way to close them out either.

I came across another yesterday.
