    KEEN Pop Up ad is Freezing up Webpage

    The new KEEN shoe pop up ad is constantly reloading when trying view forum pages......this is causing the web page to freeze up. Won't allow me to scroll down.

    Viewing on my IPhone and IPad are becoming impossible.

    This is also causing me a lot of issues while using my smart phone. It keeps locking up every time this ad loads.

    If the site keeps locking up.....then there won't be any users.

    I'm having the same issue. The ads are making it impossible to scroll. This may be the most intrusive and annoying ad on a website I've come across recently. I can barely write this post...
    Where's the gas pedal on this thing?

    +1 on all of the other comments. I can't view mtbr on my iPhone without it locking up or without having the scrolling be jerky or without having Safari crash. Maddening. I've started checking out some other mtb sites. Admins, please change this or you'll start losing members.

    Thank you.

    Naysayers will tell you, repeatedly, that the problem is yours.

    The canned response should be ... Buy a different phone.

    KEEN Pop Up ad is Freezing up Webpage

    If I have a few pairs of Keene already and love their product, can I opt out of the ads on the mobile browser. That stupid add craps out the page loads, which are already painful enough...

    I have never seen it, desktop or iPad.

    And I should be targeted as I have ordered Keens online in the past month.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    The fix in a nutshell: Adblockplus and Ghostery.

    I'm going with the theory the keen ads lured in all the porn ads / posts that are filling the board.
