Today I witnessed that suddenly there is a lot of commercial advertising on this forum.
Is this by design or have I pushed the wrong button and will be punished with spam for the rest of my days?

Same situation on iphone for me, for whatever that's worth. On a computer there have been several suggestions over a few years for ad blockers with various success rates as I recall.

I had to actually look just now as I don't really "see" the ads anyway (now the ads will be for optomitrists no doubt :rolleyes:)

Never say never but I haven't seen enough ads to make me recall having ever seen one here; using DuckDuckGo browser on my Android, with options set for maximum privacy. Let's be honest - 'internet privacy' has become an oxymoron.

There aren't ads for me on my PC but there are on my Android phone. But like Juks, I don't see ads anywhere, I've become immune, marketers are totally wasting their efforts.

Also using the latest Firefox and I see no advertisements, but I also use ad-blocking software. Like others, I do see ads when I use the app via my iPhone.

This happened to me about a month ago. It turned out to be something I’d changed… browser, I think. Or updated iOS software. Anyway, it was on my end. I reset some things and it went away.
