Now im on my desktop.... On mobile the ad system is filling the screen up with adds that dont scroll away... You can some times get about one 4th of screen to scroll topics and read posts... But dont ever think about writing a post. The keyboard fills up that space and the ad doesnt even disappear or scroll away.

I am on an iphone right now and there is nothing like this at all. Try taping the gray "up arrow" to collapse the ads up to the top. It looks like you have expanded the ad block down over the content.

That would collapse the small add but not the big one... Theres no way to collapse the big one.

I tried using an android tablet and everything is fine but I don't have an android phone to test with.

All ads (3rd party or not) should still be in a DOM element container that should respect and responsive/styling. Unless the advertisers are hard coding things like WIDTH..etc on images or other elements.

Wouldnt that be a cache in your local browser?

If the ad is out of 'rotation' and you are still seeing it.. perhaps local then?
(I rarely visit on my phone unfortunately)

by cached i mean what ever the add service is deemed adverts for me today maybe based off analytics

On my Samsung phone, the adds block about 98% of my screen & will NOT scoll up! It makes this site almost unusable

I'm getting ads that cover most of the screen using Opera on an android phone. Can't actually see what I'm typing as the keyboard covers the only bit of screen that's not an advert. With the collapsible ad closed:
