I have two ad blockers. Used to catch most of the pop-ups but they've figured a way around it. I really think they are trying to force us to be premium members and drive the free riders away.I'm sorry that this has been so difficult for you.
One thing I can tell you is that this website recently had some sort of update/overhaul, and that caused many things to change incidentally. For example, "New Threads" was not on the side of the screen when the update first happened, which bothered me. Suddenly, it's back! As far as I understand, the excessive ads began after the update as well. I have no knowledge of their intention to fix it or what they plan to do about it, but I know it hasn't been long. I can't relate because I have the premium membership or whatever it's called, which eliminates ads.
In the meantime, I heard one member suggest an ad blocker. I have no experience with them but they've been spoken highly of here.
Another option is to wait it out and come back later, checking in every once in a while to see if things have improved. There have been several complaints about this so you're not alone. I would be just as angry if I were you.
New comers to a site aren't really going to be likely to go through all the steps listed to solve a problem with a site that they have just found. A few might tell you there is a problem, the rest will just take one look and leave. Very rarely will any copy the URL, take a screenshot, and look up the version number of their browser.
