I hate the default to mobile site

How many times do I have to answer that the reason I want the desktop version is because the mobile site is broken, is slow, is missing features, etc, etc,? Just let me go direct to the desktop version from my iphone, and then ask me if I want to go to the mobile site. I skip ya because of this.

Re: I hate the default to mobile site

I agree with you totally!
How many Aps do stupid websites think we want? Every day now you have to click through things just to read a site. How many times do I have to say I DO NOT WANT YOUR AP! Stop treating me like an imbicile!

Further now I am on the subject of the website owners: whats with the slut ads??? Do you think we are so low we need to be constantly enticed by scantily clad women into your click-bait ads??

Sailnet and Cruisers forum look like some prostitution service!

Get real!

+1000

Believe it or not, but Sailing Anarchy has the best mobile site I've used. Clean interface, remembers your last location in every thread, etc. Its so good I use it on my regular computers.

Re: I hate the default to mobile site

I wouldn't disagree with the OP. I won't use the mobile app and yep one does get a bit sick and tired on constantly being prompted. Not an exclusively SailNet problem of course but it is irksome.

Mark ... I'm not sure that SailNet or CF for that matter have any control over the ads for young ladies of doubtful moral standing. My guess it's a Google Ads thing. Otoh, you would think some kind of control should be able to keep the slime at bay.

I've referred all this to admin.

That's what I was going to say, many of the ads are based on your browsing history! But there were some ads that were not, as I remember many of the women making comments about how close certain women lived to them and jokes being made about them.

Now the Classifieds were becoming a marketplace for Indian prostitution for sure, glad that seemed to get cleaned up. Unfortunately the classifieds are all but useless they need a total revamp.

Just another reason to use ad blocker software. I never see any of that stuff.

Re: I hate the default to mobile site

One is a travel company... The other is some news catcher... Both use sexist ads
I dont think they are google generated.
