When logging in anonymously for the first time in a long while I saw that some of my attachment photos had been turned into adds! A kind of has frame or wide border had been made around my attached pics. First of all allowing that is BS - just NO! Someone submits a beautiful landscape w/river or something and you are going to put a wide bright orange frame around it with a car ad or something like the picture is part of the add. I can’t express how big of a no that would be for me. Don’t co-opt OUR content that way. Whatever way you monetize, it should be obvious that is a big no!
Secondly, and the main point, could it be possible these adds are causing conflicts with the attachments for some people? Perhaps there are video conflicts, or the ads are not loading and blocking the picture, or maybe some people have ad-blocking software that stops both the add and the attachments. Just an idea. But presumably this would not be an issue if logged on normally into your account. It is definitely an issue with the particular individual.
But seriously nothing is as tacky and intrusive, and just a violation, as having an ad take over your photo and incorporate it. Banners are bad enough, but keep the content distinguishable from the adds. That is just a given.
