Even snopes.com is unusable on my phone. What other sites have you noticed doing this? I'd like to compile a list. We need to band together to fix this.
1) Jailbreak/rooting: Not practical for all users, especially non-technically-inclined users. Jailbreaking (iOS) and rooting (Android)--and whatever one does to a Windows phone--give the user basically carte blanche to make changes to the phone's operating system, with all the benefits and risks inherent in that process. In other words, you can turn your phone into a superphone capable of contacting the Doctor no matter where he is in time and space*, or turn it into a very expensive paperweight. However, jailbroken and rooted phones do have the advantage of browsers that accept ad-blocking extensions.
2) Contacting site owners: the advantage is that it's courteous. The disadvantage is that it probably won't help.
3) Contacting phone and app makers: this might be a good option to combine with option 2, although honestly, phone makers really don't stand to lose too much from people upset over ads messing up their web browsing experience.
I'll consider any other options as long as they are legal. Please comment with both any sites I haven't mentioned and any ideas you have.
*It may not be possible to contact the Doctor, since he is a fictional character, especially if you are on T-Mobile.
Yes, even LiveJournal. LiveJournal still exists.

The rest of me looks at the one-inch incision site and can't draw a link between that and the slowly diminishing pain in my gut, and can't understand why I'm tired all the time right now.
I'm lucky the pain isn't too bad, and that I can sleep. I have this weird neurological system that completely ignores hydrocodone, and while oxycodone does have a minor analgesic effect, it also knocks me out pretty quickly (Also, those two medications interact with a maintenance med I currently take). I did discover that Dilaudid (hydromorphone) takes away ALL the pain, but also keeps me from being able to stay awake at all.
So that's where I am right now. Bleh.
