Something has changed recently on this site that makes it almost unusable in Safari on my iPad. (The same change has happened with Tom's Hardware forums.) Between one-half to one-third of the right-hand side of each page is now blank with a small label "AdChoices". This reduces the size of the rest of the page making it difficult to read and select items.

Hey,

There haven't been any design changes recently. Does it happen every time or only sometimes? If only sometimes, it must be some ad. Any idea which one?

Every time. It has only started recently. And clicking on "AdChoices" takes me to a configuration page, not an advert. The fact that it was also happening on Tom's Hardware, but not on any other web sites, led me to believe it was a change to the site, or some component of it.

Doesn't "AdChoices" mean anything to you?

Hey,

Yeah, its a little icon that appears next to some ads. I don't have an iPad though, so I can't test out what you are seeing. Can you post a screenshot, or maybe send me one through e-mail?

I don't know if you have knowingly changed anything since yesterday, but it has stopped happening this morning.

Hey,

No I haven't changed anything. Maybe it was a bug in some ad somewhere.

Let me know if it shows up again!
