    ThaiVisa invokes Ad-Blocker pop-up

    Since ThaiVisa's purchase the new owners have chased the dollar with a reformat and huge increase in online/in-line Ads to the point of annoyance in the Forum sections. My Ad-blocker made changes bearable but did not block 'sponsors' which was acceptable.

    Today, each TVF page load comes with a pop-up asking for AdBlock to be turned off or wait ... 9 secs, 18 secs, 26 secs ... WTF?

    Forums were in decline anyway but now ...

    Bye bye assholes!
    Cheers, Rob.

    Just started and a real PITA.
    I don't know which is worst - waiting 25 seconds for every post to open or whitelisting TV and being bombarded with popup ads over-riding posts.
    Unfortunately I read the Visa section daily to keep up-to-date with changes.
    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!

    I just checked it out. I go there maybe once a month, if I'm really bored. Adblocker blocked 29(!) elements. Those are Google ads, and I thought their terms set a limit to ads per page. Anyway these guys need to realise that less is more.

    I occasionally look at it for a laugh at all the comments from the same old posters.

    Sometimes I got stuck into them but mostly go to the links provided to get the full story.

    History now I'm afraid, and I've let them know too.

    ^^ not at all like us 555

    I find quite a few of the news articles posted interesting and many humourous ones as well.

    Like todays posts, or yesterdays, about the cabbie taking a selfie with BIB in the car 555.

    I don't usually bother scanning the comments anymore..... zzzzzzz

    Saw this link to Thai Visa

    Save up to 45% on advertising on Thaivisa
    We are delighted to announce a very substantial 45% discount on advertorials in our newsletters, which reach 314,000 subscribers daily.
    Thatís right instead of paying 9000 baht per advertorial we are offering an absolutely great discount of 5000 baht per newsletter.
    Advertorials develop searchable online content, Thaivisa is an authority site so google indexís posts immediately.
    They are perceived by many as a informative articles, rather than an advertisement.
    The advertorial URL can be shared across various social media networks.
    With the right headline the click through rate can be quite high.
    Anyone get this newsletter?
    Claim of 314,000 subscribers seems high to me. High % I'd guess would be living out of Thailand, still a high number to claim
    And it's sent daily, pay 5000 baht per newsletter, (daily?) to advertise...
