    When you can't find an object when you're searching for it and find it later when you're no longer searching...

    When you're waiting at the shop and the person behind you in line is so close behind you that you can feel their breath on your neck, seriously you don't need to stand that close behind me no ones going to push in. Bonus frustration points for it being after work when you're already tired and grumpy.

    First day at the new position, and my station has no computer, no phone. Boss is in Florida. Grad Assistant who is supposed to explain to me what Boss wants me to do is... I don’t even know her hours.

    And apparently we’ll be moving offices in two weeks, so the facilities people are disinclined to spend any time setting up my workstation just to tear it down later.

    I should have just taken my 2 weeks vacation now.

    Yes, on Android. There's a thread about it over in the Questions, Suggestions and Feedback forum. You may wish to comment there: https://www.trekbbs.com/threads/fake-contest-redirects-are-back.300480/
    The more people complain, then maybe the more the ad service will pay attention and work better at preventing this kind of stuff.

    Can you get an adblock that will allow whitelisted ads?

    Yeah, but that's not enough to get a fake profile removed.

    There's always the possibility that the site created numerous accounts just like that one to get people to join.

    To me, it looks like Sisyphus' ordeal, you suppress one account like that and another one pops up immediately.

    yes, they do. How else would they be able to pay for their many cosmetic surgeries?

    My advice is: don't use dating websites but join a club, take evening classes, walk your pet in the park, get rid of your smartphone. In short: stop staring at a screen, get offline and get into contact with likeminded people in your vicinity. Real life is spam-free, virus-free (if you use certain precautions) and 3 D. And no ads popping up in inconvenient places :D

    When entertaining threads devolve into real-world sociopolitical arguments that I came here to get away from. :scream:
