If you read the description it says Want to hide the Ads. By which you would answer Yes to hide them. But that shows them. You have to select No to actually hide them. While the title says Show Ads and you would select No, the description says the opposite.
I must confess I went and set "Yes" which seemed natural from a cursory glance, and because it was the opposite to the default setting, then I read CG's comment in a different thread from the one that I first saw the new option, that he'd already set 1000+ users.
When I went back and checked, I read more carefully and realized my mistake, so I have to agree with Mak that there's plenty of scope for confusion with the current wording.
I don't think you'd place much reliance on the result of a poll which asked, "Are you in favour of nuclear disarmament, or should we keep the bomb ? Reply Yes or No.
Mak and I are proof that people can't be relied upon always to read with great care. Not that it's of great consequence. It should be pretty obvious that you've ticked the wrong box when the ads don't go away.
It is really a simple mistake. I mean if you read the title it says it all. But i read the description which kinda goes against the title. So that is what caused my confusion. I went by the description not the title which caused me to have ads. It was a simple fix. Just go back and click the other option.
Since there is only 2 options if the 1 doesnt give you the result you want, select the other one.
