Here I will show you how to delete items from this list so that they never automatically install themselves.

<div data-ad=
aplik2 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" aplik2-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
