Using my phone to enter tom's hardware forum 80% of screen is cover by ads on the top and about 15% ads on the bottom, and behind the covered ads there is another ads lol https://ibb.co/s3RPh29? there's no way to close it.

I see nothing like that browsing on chrome on android.

Is the language of those ad's your native language? I'd be more inclined to think malware/adware than something being served up by the site.

I have this same problem on Android Chrome. I understand ads will go away once a certain point is reached and that ads are of course needed to keep the site going but what about visitors looking to find answers to problems, etc. The forum is unreadable from a mobile standpoint with the ads. The problem is the ads move from their original location to cover most of the screen when you scroll past them.

I think I may have found a solution to the problem, but it would require some help from the web developer. The option to close the advertising on the top half of the screen is UNDER the Tom’s Hardware mobile overlay.

You can see this briefly if you scroll past the top, but only for a moment, and even if you try to close it quickly I’m not sure the code will allow that while the screen is scrolling, at least it didn’t work for me.
