Toning down the pics...

Hi there. I was wondering if there is some way to tone down, or even turn off, the ad pics that display on the first page, on a first visit.

My wife thought that I was looking at a porn site, because she caught sight of the pics being displayed. Some of them are quite blatant.

I would hope that children wouldn't be looking on the site for subtitles, and seeing the pics on display. Deaf children do use subtitles too!

It also makes the site look pretty shoddy and unprofessional.

I don't have any problem with seeing comments. I am running on a PC, not android. I am running Firefox with adblock+. The problem is with whoever is allowing these "porn" looking ads to be used.  The above post does nothing to rectify this. But thanks for your input anyway...:(

Just try uBlock Origin... ;)

I second the suggestion for uBlock Origin.

You might also want to add Disconnect.

Wanna be really hands-on?  NoScript.

Many thanks for the pointer to uBlock Origin.  That seems to have done the trick.

However it still leaves the question as to why a subtitle site feels a need to display "porno" ads?:huh:

​This is not exactly our choice in fact. Ads are chosen and shown by an advertisement service that we subscribe to, and it helps us with a part of expenses to keep the site alive. ;)

Hi :)

I use Firefox with ghostery and adblock and don't see any ads any more - even when adblock isn't active on the site and even when I'm not logged in. So I guess ghostery is pretty useful for that, too...
