Get rid of the obnoxious video ads
It is obnoxious that you put video ads in that I can't immediately kill. Instead I must shut down the whole window and start over. How rude of you
Your video ads suck up more bandwidth than I have, causing things to freeze. The ads are ineffective because my computer is frozen, I can't see the ads and I can't use your site. The only solution is to close the window, clear cookies and cache and start over. Needless to say, when I start over, it is not to use your site. Some days I can use it, but many days I just have to go elsewhere. Too bad. Your site is the best one, just too bad you choose to advertise in a way that makes it impossible to use. Sounds like bad marketing to me. You should rethink your business plan.
I do not want to see ads promoting sex. League of Angels is running, and my kids are watching over my shoulder. there should be family friendly ads running, I am not on an x rated site!
Just today I complained about the way your video ads freeze things up and make it impossible to use your site. I just tried again, and not only will the video not stop messing with my bandwidth, BUT IT IS AN AD FOR AN ADULT PRODUCT!!!! PLEASE, GIVE ME A BREAK! I DON'T NEED TO SEE THAT WHEN I AM TRYING TO PLAY A WORD GAME! DISGUSTING!
Your video ads that run automatically make it impossible for me to use your site. It is a bandwidth issue. When you have those that just keep coming up, everything freezes. And I can tell you they are so obnoxious that I have actually started a list of products I will not buy, simple because of these intrusive ads. I know you need to advertise, but these are achieving the opposite effect the marketers desire. Even as I type this, I am hearing an annoying soundtrack that I cannot turn off and my data entry is sporadic because of some video ad playing in the background. Please change your marketing strategy.
i stopped using your site because of them
Monitor the site more often and get these people out of here if they cannot control themselves.
Just rubbish and annoying - have removed ap
New ads CANNOT be closed!!! This site is NOT useable!!!
Fix the bingo ad from the Apple app store! There's no close button and the rest of the page is inaccessible.
I understand you need the ads to support your site, but if i have to keep refreshing just to see the site for 5 seconds before the same ad takes complete control of the site again and again with no other way to see what i actually came to the webpage to see, there's no use in me even visiting the site. i've grown to hate to completely now!!!!!
get rid of this horrible new intrusion--the pink advertising blob that covers our words and can't be closed
I understand and fully support your need for advertising, but I don't smoke and really don't want to be subjected to the grossness of those commercials while I'm at the breakfast table. Is there a way we can opt out of certain types of ads? It really is disgusting and could have psychological effects on people who don't even smoke.
They are eating my mobile phone bandwidth motherfuckers
They suck on the iPhone and keep playing every time I hit enter and are impossible to click out of! Fix it or ditch the ads!!
I can't use this site any longer. The annoyance of ads popping up over what I'm trying to read is not worth the value of the site.
There have been several harmful "malware" threats that have appeared when using this page. On several different occasions my computer has been attacked by a couple different programs. I recommend you address this if you want people to recommend this site.
The user should have the option as to whether or not to listen to the audio. It's rude to just blast it with no control to turn it off or down. What makes it worse is your totally inane policy of running the same ad two or three times on the same page. The ad ends up talking over itself and talking over its selves.
We The People, not Union Rule! I STAND WITH SCOTT WALKER!
So annoying that I can no longer play the game. I pay to remove ads and they are now appearing every few minutes, blocking the game. So f'ing annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Going to give this game up if they dont stop very annoying
There is a video ad behind an ad... It blocks my "play" button and shuts off my sound. I tried shutting down but it didn't go away. What can I do? I'm about ready to give up the game entirely

Jessie Rosenberg, I love playing scrabble but a lot of the commercials are too long like those fake actresses doing the whitening strips, toothpaste: just so you understand, I'll never buy that particular product because ad Is so
Fake. I turn phone over until ad is over!
I love scrabble, but those kids game ads come on every minute, and they can't be beeped off instantly. Why do we have to have such a good game screwed up so bad?
I never buy or watch anything that is advertised and spoils my scrabble game. So there!
I used to love playing against the computer , but since the last update every time you play a word you. Get a screen of advertising, please someone fix this
How can I fix -- when I put in letters the display gets huge and it locks up every time. Using I pad
I use an ad blocker. I really don't mind the ads, but they slow things down so much that it takes 2x to 3x as long to do anything. If you could get advertisers who just gie you a simple popup and link that would be fine. Everybody's gotta make a buck, I understand that.
It looks like they got rid of the apps trending thing that was covering the buttons. The you have a virus lies Hasbro and EA are effectively perpetrating are best dealt with by having two browsers with no default set and hitting cancel when these hazardous ads come up.
I am never buying Surf again.
Do we all have to go out with a campaign and boycott surf to make them stop this? Unilever s the company that has placed the ad
How do we stop Unilever to have their Surf pop up that you cant get rid of? Do we all write to Unilever and complain?
Have been playing free Words with Friends for years but I can't get rid if the Surf video in the middle of a game with an American friend. I've switched the power on, double clicked home button etc but it still comes back and prevents my word sending. Help please
Scrabble is lame putting this apps trending popup. Bad!!!
If they will not remove apps trending on our scrabble game..which makes it impossible to play..why don't we petition the advertisers that pay Facebook to stop doing their advertising there..we are so busy trying to get rid of that intrusive ad..we can't play..and don't see their ads anyway!
I'm having more fun chasing the stupid Apps trending icon around on the screen than I am trying to play the Scrabble.
It's likely that Scrabble will not admit how intrusive this ad hacker really is... 1%? Hardly believe them. What about our security? Will they feel guilty should personal information be lifted that ruins someone's life? I'm more than annoyed. This is highly irresponsible of Hasbro. I still haven't heard back form them regarding my complaint. They should be able to do something for the people who have been hijacked.
Pop up has ruined a good game. Please stop
