Have we always had Taboola links at the bottom of every forum page?

Nope.

I assume it's part of the advertising revenue stream. But it's a type that really annoys me...!

I agree - I don't mind ads but really hate click bait. On the plus side, it reminded me that I needed to get round to subscribing and now it's gone ;)

No they're new. I dislike them a lot and find it annoying as on the phone I used to scroll down to get the thread links, now it's too far, and the thread header is way down too.

I've actually sent feedback as I think it really cheapens the site.

I'll be subscribing when Fetch sends bank details (or have I missed that?)

I could give you some feedback to give to Taboola but I'm afraid it wouldn't be very constructive, or nice.

Don't mind regular ads at all, I have disabled ad-blocking on FE. But I hate Taboola/Outbrain clickbait. Plus, I am having the same issue as Meglet when using my phone.

Are you still going to be providing details for standing orders? Or should we use the subscribe option?

I'm disliking it for the reasons Meglet says. I know we need to be financially self sufficient but :(

(could possibly just tolerate them if they didn't interfere with navigating the site)

Agreed, if they were below the thread header and links...

They've gone! Thank you Fetch, it's a much nicer place without them.

Now, if you can send your bank details I can properly get rid of the rest of the ads...

Got something to say?
