    I haven't spotted it yet today...

          I normally don’t mind advertisements as long as they’re easy to close and don’t obscure content.

          However I am absolutely totally utterly completely revolted and disgusted by the earwax advertisement. It makes me feel sick and I’m not even a squeamish individual. What would be the process for complaining? I can’t bear to look at it anymore.

            I mean I know earwax is an unfortunate fact of life but what’s next? Are they going to show us photographs of haemorrhoids? Sputum? Nasal polyps? Post nasal drip? Please please get this advertisement off my screen

                    I use an advert blocker to get rid of those distracting flashing adverts by default.
                    I do not see the ear wax advert.
                    I have not had a closure failure with the pop up at the bottom for a week or so.

                      It looks like it's a gooooogle advert muck lover. Not nice, I agree.

                      The Vine doesn't have control over those, although having said that I think Admin can request blocking specific things like pawn (the other spelling so as not to attract said word)

                      Not sure but I think removing any cookies might remove the advert ?????

                        That is disgusting,I don’t know why I clicked on the picture to make it larger I think talking about the thing might make us all get those adverts,I’ve got this one which is quite regional & not bad if it’s just words,some things don’t need a picture

                          You're right, JJ: usually Google (and social media) ads are based on things we've been talking about or looked up. So if that's a Google ad, then the Vine possibly can't be held to blame. I've got an ad blocker installed on my PC and these days the only ads I see are the big banner across the top and whatever pops up at the bottom. I haven't seen anything along the bottom for days now.

                            Def will try an ad blocker for this phone. And will never mention earwax again (ooops)
