Poetrysoup question


Blog Posted:1/18/2013 10:39:00 PM
Is it a new ad policy on this site to have ads pop up right over my poems when I try to read them? Or is it my smartphone. I hope it is the latter because if not I'm wondering why premuim members should be subject to this ads when we are paying to use this site. Comment and answers please fellow soupers.

    Depending on the poem, they advertise similar products to what your poem is about. That's where they make their money; sponsors.

    This happens to me on my Blackberry, but not on my laptop. So it's probably your phone!

    Doesn't happen to me, Michael. I don't know anything about Smart phones!! I can't even imagine using one for Soup. (well, I hope you get it resolved)
