    That's it really.
    I am not sure why it is continually there or what, if anything, is being advertised. I would at least feel reassured if others were seeing it too.

    Adblock. Costs nothing. If you want to watch anything on a commercial TV channel though, you have to turn it off (even I can do it).

    No, still being invited to apply to the University of Chichester and alternately offered a fancy TV.

    Adblocker is good for some sites... US websites are chocka with horrible lag inducing adverts and some UK sites have started copying them... especially the ones that trigger videos to start automatically.

    But there are some sites I disable it for [I have it on my firefox, not on chrome] because I want the revenue to go to the creators.

    Assuming it's what used to be Bishop Otter College (teacher training college) I've already been there and left after one term.

    That's part of it, but there's much more to it now!

    I am getting an ad for a Steed flatbed truck made in China for £14k.

    After watching the Top Gear episode where they tested Chinese cars I'll pass thanks.
