ALL Ads here are a WordPress Glitch
Please don’t give up on the site while I sherlock to fix

I had intended to leave the prior article at the top of the stack of the 20 most recent (skinny column on the right) until more readers had a chance to find it and read it. If you missed it, I think you’ll find Nick: A Personal Triumph over Brain Damage worth your time and incredibly inspiring.
Even though I PAY to keep ads off the site, functionality was recently coopted by advertising anyway. NOT. OK.
Don’t forget that you can always check out the sidebar
for a reminder of how links work on this site, they’re subtle ==>
How I found out
To save time I need today to STOP this nonsense, I am copying part of Ray’s comment and all of my reply below.
PLEASE let me know if any of the rest of you have run across this problem (on ADDandSoMuchMore.com or on your own sites), so I can pass the information on to the folks as WordPress.com. Thanks.
While I’ve got your attention Tink,
I was rudely interrupted on your page by a sponsor ad which changed the page layout and lost my position completely. I had to go out and come back in to find the Reply box thingy again. I know that Colin has Unfollowed sites that (as he puts it) “screws him around when he is trying to go somewhere”.
Just thought I’d mention it. Woof! Ray.
Thanks for letting us know, Ray, and our apologies for that hateful nonsense – blame the WordPress Gremlins.
I actually PAY THEM so that my readership is not subjected to ads of any sort – because, since a majority struggle with reading already, I despise *anything* that pulls focus from absorbing the information I spend a great deal of [non-billable] time to provide at no charge.
I’ll send your second paragraph to the “Happiness Engineers” so that they can sherlock and fix. It’s not the only thing more than a little nutty of late – but probably the most disturbing.
The LAST thing I want to do is “screw anybody around” with something as self-serving as attempts to sell them something they didn’t come here to buy.
Please tell Colin not to give up on the site. I’ll get this sorted as quickly as I can. Let me know if this was a one-off or if it continues, pretty please.
READERS: IS THE ABOVE EXPERIENCE HAPPENING TO ANYONE ELSE?
ADDENDUM: I put the Wikipedia link up myself, so it IS approved by me (a useful volunteer and non-profit site I use quite a bit, so it has earned the right to my help) – it’s not really an Ad, per se.
The BIG difference is that the graphic stays on the sidebar and out of the way. You have to click it to get over there. If you don’t (or don’t see it), it behaves itself quietly and doesn’t pull focus from the articles.
Many thanks to delayed2sleep for bringing this to my attention after my plea for feedback (one of the best sites on the web for DSPS/DSPD/N-24 – chronorhythm sleep disorders – for anyone struggling with sleep timing.)
