The popups are getting ridiculous.

I rarely ever get adds on my phone or pc. pc is firefox and phone android 10. I think I dont get them because I use a vpn for the internet for security, it has a tracker and add blocker on so I never get them, but on here I notice the vpn program runs the cpu harder on this site.

I'm from South Africa. lol. Nothing works properly here in SA anymore including when I browse forums like this....even advertiser's don't bother targeting South Africans anymore. We're a waste of advertising time.

Best way of avoiding popups is to browse without logging in, however unlike some competitor sites you are then blocked from viewing attachments! Perhaps ETO could fix that too!
