Large animated ads are frequently appearing within posts themselves. Example ad from Walmart, and example ad about bed bugs.

Is this intentional?

Definitely not. Jader and I tried to fix the lack of ads yesterday and thought it didn't work as I'm still not seeing ads. Obviously some people are though, and they're not quite where they're supposed to be. Thanks for letting us know.

Where do you see them? There should be 2 or 3 ads per page -- a banner ad at the top, a banner ad at the bottom, and a square ad on the corner of the first unread post.

I don't see banners smack dab in the middle of posts anymore, do you?

AmethystSweet, I suspect the confusion here is coming from the fact that you joined ACC after the normal ads stopped working in mid-January. The way it's been over the last few months, with no ads at all, is not normal. There are supposed to be 2-3 ads per page, like GavinGoneGlobal said, because it's one of the main sources of income that we use to keep the site running.

What was "fixed" according to the recent announcement was a recent problem where many more ads were appearing than usual, and in strange places on the page (such as in the middle of posts). As far as I'm aware, that's been dealt with, and what's happening now is normal and intended.

If you object on principle to ads being shown on ACC, you are welcome to complain about it on the Site Suggestions board, but I'll warn you in advance that nothing is likely to come of it. We don't like ads either (does anybody?), but we've not yet found another good way of bringing in enough money to keep the site afloat. You are also free to use an adblocker, but in that case you will not see treasures.
