I'm being inundated with takeover ads ("you may have won a $1000 Amazon gift card!") today. I'm currently stuck using my iPhone, so I'm pretty sure it's one of the banner ads, but it's making the site all but unusable.

I don't know if you can do anything about it, but it would be great if you could...

So, give it over, take a break
Shut your hole, you're causing my poor heart to ache
To all you saints and sinners, you losers and you winners
Here's to one more day above the roses
-- Gaelic Storm, One More Day Above the Roses

I don’t think Robert even controls the ads that pop up. There should be a way to disable that crap in the website coding and I’m not talking about just here but everywhere.

Hmnn-I don't get any here, but on my iPhone I get all kinds of bullshit from Amazon telling me all about the free deals I have-I end up shutting down to get rid of them.

You don't have to close the browser.   Just go to the Back button and hold it down until it shows you the history and you can go back to the previous page you were on.   A single click to go back doesn't work because it sends you to the redirect page which sends you back to the takeover site.   You have to go back 2 sites.

It's based on the google ads that appear in your browser which are influenced by your browser history so this can affect some more than others.  That's why I said this site doesn't really control it - the ads are selected by Google or whichever ad service Robert is using.
