I hate you, Fanfiction.net!!!

/rant on

Since when did you decide to have your authors/readers take it in the rump?

I do NOT want to complete an insipid Harry Potter quiz and get spam on my cell phone in order to read the stories I ALREADY PUBLISHED ON YOUR SITE. You never had me pay to use your site or have me go through all these stupid hurdles before, so why now? You already have banner ads everywhere.

Has anybody else noticed this?

No but I haven't visited there in some time.

Desperate times call for desperate measures and, well, this is why nobody likes them. Hence a last resort--though in this case I'm willing to say medium to last.


We'll murder them all, amid laughter and merriment...except for the few we take home to experiment!

Have you tried visiting the mobile version on your phone? I just checked it out on my Blackberry and didn't see any ads...

This is the universes way of telling you not to read crappy fanfiction.

lol You sound like Cindy Jacobs in the Arkansas bird thread...maybe she should claim royalties?


But I do not have any problems accessing the site (it's not pretty but I see no ads and can access the content without problems). I fully support what Stinghers said: try firefox + addblocker.

Hey, I post there frequently. 60+ stories, and over a dozen fandoms. It's a great place to act as a central hub for fanfics and fandoms.

But Firefox with adblocker will solve the annoying ads.

Agreed with Allronix. ABP rocks.

(Plus, Allronix has some amazing stories up there, too!
