Annoying Ads

I know this space has to be paid for and the Admins are only volunteers, but am I the only one getting bombarded with annoying advertisers here? Lately, there are ad space areas at the top and right side of pages that launch videos just from my mouse pointer passing over them. No clicking - just touching that space with the pointer.

Is there some way to stop this irksome behavour. Or can the Admins be a little more picky on who advertises.

i love this site. but this is getting frustrating when trying to click on a thread link and launching ads in windows if my pointer strays a little in those areas.

Again - I appreciate that we have to have advertisers. But this is worse than robo-calls on my landline!

I downloaded Adblock plus, I will stop the ads.

Adblock plus is a free download.

Same here. It stopped most of it. What browser are you using?

I use Google Chrome, which is usually pretty good at stopping a lot of that stuff. But not these!

I only get ads at the top of the page on my desktop with Chrome. On my Kindle there are some ads within the posts.

I get adds but none that are streaming. Just normal everyday adds.

I'm running IE 11. The animations run without hovering. A bit distracting. Just like static on the radio...

No video or expanding adds for me on JOF. I have seen those on other sites but not here. Still on IE 10 but use Firefox at home and no issues either.
