    Petty problem, really. You don't HAVE to have tons of pages open.

    I guess what I'm dying to know is why Tapatalk still exists. Now that is going backwards.

    The mobile website was specifically designed to make the experience better so using Tapatalk in this case is pretty much like kicking on a brick wall barefeet instead of wearing boots and then screaming how it's painful because you couldn't pick the better option next to you.

    Ads are... ads. Not much can be done, block them, or stop using Tapatalk, it's very likely it is *their* own ads displayed there.

    A standard reply would have been I don't watch porn. You have pretty much said you search for porn just not on your phone you dirty dirty fucker :rofl2::ha::evil::rofl2:

    A shame most of these ads are for games with terrible design..

    Out of pure curiosity I clicked on one of those ads in a vm and it didn’t even make me cum, what a fucking scam

    Its a distraction for the animal within us, so as to get us attached to the physical and disconnected from the non-physical element within that brought us into being.

    Yes thats right.
    I'm a red bloodied male.

    Problem still remains that what should be a child friendly platform is or rather did have porn adds.
    There neither relevant to the site and not appropriate for children.
    And before you say. The scene is and always has a young following.

    Blame Tapatalk... AFAIK The Temp isn't responsible for the ads you see on an app.

    I've used Tapatalk before. I didn't like it.
    If you don't want ads, I recommend using Bromite. Don't bother with Patreon; from the way I see it, paying for premium on forums is the same as simping for Twitch girls.

    Sexy milfs are within a 1 mile radius from me, and want me to message them!

    Also, for people on Android, look up Adguard. You don't even need to be rooted.

    Or you could do what everyone else does and just get an ad blocker

    Bromite is a Chrome browser for mobile with a built-in ad-blocking feature.

    For the sake of it, I installed Tapatalk and tried using GBAtemp on it. Besides being clunky as all get out, I didn't see any hoT SinGlEs IN mY ArEa. Maybe I just have to use Tapatalk a bit more, but I'd rather...not.

    Googling the issue showed tons of people having these same adverts as you, though...on various forums, ranging from GameFAQs...to porn ads on Tapatalk's own forum itself! So the issue very very fortunately is not with GBAtemp or any ad related business on the site...but instead is with whatever in the world Tapatalk is doing on their end.

    Change is obviously difficult--I'm sure if I had to deal with the site in a fashion that wasn't how I'd done things for the past handful of years, I'd be upset too. But it seems that the only thing to do is fork over money because Tapatalk seems to be trying to eke cash out of its users by not caring about the ads it's hosting, or to use GBAtemp on the mobile page.

    I'm not much of a phone person, but I have tapatalk installed, just don't understand the difference between using normal chrome and tapatalk. temp is the only site I have the password in my phone for, so that means how much I like all of you. ;)

    lol, those two adverts look strangely familair, where have i seen these before, hmm?

    i don't get these type of adverts on any of my devices (windows pc, mac, ipad). maybe becuase i don't use the tiptak app?
    this seems odd to see happen.
