The adverts on this site are there to pay for the up keep of the site, without them we would either have to pay or funkypool simply would just not exist. Therefore users are not able to block showing the adverts.

By the way a pop-up blocker is not an advertisement blocker, instead its purpose is to stop pop-up's from doing what they do best and that is to pop up.

Just close your eyes and pretend they aren't there. Open them on your shot obviously.

Thanks for doing that Steven, after I kindly asked you to remove your post, I think you can consider that your last post for a while.

i have never had a problem with ads affecting my game.Im crap at the best of times, but seriousley just deal with it and play on, its not as if its life threatening is it? maybe clean up ur hard drive and dont have so many apps running, oh and between 4pm and 8pm GMt is heavy nett traffic, so that also cud be it

Get a black marker pen, colour the advert in on your screen with it and there you go!

No more adverts!!

Best idea seen yet!

Remember you dont need any add ons to block popups with any of the new browsers, they all have blockers built in which are, from experience, much more effective than third party solutions.

IE7 for example, go to tools>internet options> privacy tab - then you can turn it on and set up to your preference.

Dont forget that installing programs like ad-blockers adversely affect your pc's performance. Its yet another program running after all...

I never seem to have any problems with the adverts to be honest, it jumps for a sec when a new advert loads but thats to be expected, other than that i don't really have a problem with them at all!

Lucky me!

Very few users now suffer from lag issues. Not that long ago it was far more common but solutions and progressions have been made.
