"add" for "ad"

I’ll start out with three examples from the same comment thread:

too many adds, takes too long to load, wont be back

horrible site toooooo many adds, wont be back.

Very annoying! Way to many adds.

All three of the above from this comment thread.


These adds are why I’ve always loved Marvel, they hooked me a very young age.
appreciation of vintage ads

Porn Hub App gave me a virus. This included CONSTANT adds and pop ups on my phones HOME screen.Haven’t been able to log in for 3 days.

...I must remove this site from my favorites, and never again visit. The problem comes from you having far too many adds. Yes I know you want to have the site pay for itself, and maybe make a buck.

There are way too many adds for the amount being charged for aol service. This is why people are leaving aol. If you wish that to continue keep up all the adds ...Do something about the adds!

Advertisements can be seen as extraneous items “added” to whatever content one is viewing. An eggcorn, sez I!
