Seems to have disappeared. Yesterday and last night everytime you scrolled down it would appear (full width).

I saw the ad on active topics as well as in the middle of threads. Only from my laptop, not on my iPad.
We're monitoring this: the ad is capped to appear only a certain number of times per user, and only on certain sections of the site.
Editor-in-Chief of What Hi-Fi? and whathifi.com
And just like that he popped up again immediately above Andy's post
Group Marketing & PR Manager, Computers Unlimited.
Brands represented include Astell&Kern, Audioengine, B&O Play, Canton, Flexson for SONOS and SONOS
I see threads like this and I feel assured that the £5 I spent on a third-party donationware adblocker was money absolutely well spent. I don't get pestered by any adverts on this site.
Very irritating, certainly not going to sell me anything but actually creates a certain antipathy towards the advertiser
Keeps popping up on me today - very annoying!

Have always killed it before it got to who the advertiser actually is, but could it not have been designed without full-blast sound as soon as it appears, as that's making this entire site very NSFW at the moment.
Agreed on the ad-blockers, but surely if people have to resort to using them to kill ads like this, that's very counterproductive for the site as a whole, which surely must depend on its vast amount of advertising splattered all over the EDITED shop to survive?

I've not seen the ad (couldn't even force it to happen when curious) but I understand some people being annoyed.
You are presented with an advert. You respond with the equivalent of "no thanks" by clicking on X. But then it keeps coming back. It's rude.
If someone comes to my door to promote their product and I politely say "no thanks", then I don't expect them to keep coming back (whether randomly or on some kind of timer) to knock on my door again.

I guess the presumption is that because adblockers don't come as standard, not enough people are likely to use them on all their platforms to make advertising not worthwhile. I remember Akai launching a VCR in the 80s which paused the recording during ad-breaks. I saw it for sale for a few months then presumably it got banned.
I've not seen the advert yet, does it look something like this ?
