Getting rid of ads

Is there ANY way to get rid of The Stir ads at the bottom of the screen? I find most of the topics listed there to be very offensive and the ad really can't be avoided.

  • Those are not ads, they are part of the Around CafeMom section so no, there isn't a way to block them. They are links to another part of the site. In this case the extra sugar box on The Stir which is a part of CafeMom just like the answers or journals are. If you find them offensive don't click in. That is what I do when offensive posts or questions appear in this section.

  • If you have FF, I now you can download the Ad Blocker. I think Chrome and IE have something you can download also. Just google ad blocker and your browser you use.

  • The only offensive one was the lice ad., the rest is advertising and is part of the blitz of ads....

  • A pop-up blocker won't work on that type of ad. I know because i have one on my computer. Ads which are part of the page design (like the ones for The Stir) can't be avoided.

  • When I had a Ad Blocker NOT a Pop up blcoker, it took all ads away.

  • I don't have any ads at all. Firefox plus ad blocker.
