These animated ads are making WordReference so slow and erratic as to render it useless.
There are already threads on this topic; for instance this one. In that thread, you find information about how to report annoying advertisements, and what else to do.
Hi Sowka Thanks for replying.
I did search the forums for 'ads' and 'advertisements', but maybe I missed 'adverts'. I'll pursue the thread you mentioned, though it's a year old.
It's sad to see Word Reference looking so garish, and ugly. I understand the need for advertisements but not for the horrid, bright, animated ones. It's like watching children's TV!
I assume you're talking about advertisements in the dictionaries...
Advertising in Wordreference dictionaries
The fact that a thread here on the C&S forum is "old" does not necessarily mean it is out of date! And in this case, I can assure you that the mechanism for reporting obnoxious ads is still totally functional, and that it's very much appreciated when you make use of it!!!
I've been hearing some reports of overly animated ads in the UK lately, but I can't get anybody to follow directions and send a screenshot. I don't see the same ads as you do, so I have to rely on these reports to make any decisions. So, please send me a report!
