Nasty photos on iPad ER app

Is there any way to avoid the nasty photos that appear in the ER forum iPad app?

If the op is having symptoms similar to mine, the photos are not pop ups or in ads. Some are in the thread listing.

I turned off image preview under the iPad app settings to get rid of these photos.

Thanks Ronstar. Those pictures are revolting. The guy looking at his teeth, the female with the Raiders stickers on her boobs, and the fellow with the mutilated face, just to name a few. The rest of the pictures are usually silly or irrelevant to the discussion.

I read this site often with other people around including young children. We don't need this junk polluting its app.

I expect to see these pictures on sites that are click-bait - "Fourteen teen movie stars who look like H!@#L now" type of thing.

Chuckanut - After doing a little thread checking, it looks like most, if not all, photos were posted by members in in their posts. The app just picks them up from the posts and puts them as graphics to the thread listing. I'll check further with the moderator team.

I use only the full early-retirement.org website on all devices, not the apps, so photos stay in place with a post within a thread within a forum. Try that?

I've always found the app to be squirrely and never use it.

They seem to be permanent, or at least semi-permanent since they have been there for weeks.

Maybe I am just to fussy and old fashioned. If nobody else is bothered by them, I can live with them.

If those who are annoyed at this (which included me) would follow this simple step, the problem would go away.

FYI, they have an unusual mushy texture unlike a typical sausage. Some people are turned off by it but I found the flavor worth overlooking that particular shortcoming.

I thought there had to be a reason to not go.
