  • Okay, I Am Really Irritated...

    Just had to chase an advertisement for a Bayer pharmaceutical product across the computer screen to delete/close it. Every time I got the cursor on the X the ad would move. This went on for about 6 or 7 times before I nailed it and the advertisement disappeared. Not nice.

    did that happen when you opened a window for this forum? I've never had an advert pop up before on here.

      No, not here...on internet news site.

        Some creative and irritating new style of delivering ads have been popping up recently. In yahoo mail on my phone the mail pieces open up to create a place for an ad that then follows you as you move the window up or down. I do my best to ignore all this stuff... If I accidentally click on an ad that's a victory for that kind of placement and I don't want to encourage it...

          Of course, it also costs the advertiser money when you click on it. So, if you click on it "accidentally", and then back out of it before you have a chance to register an "impression"...everybody loses all the way around.

          I don't do that on purpose, of course...

            Sunshine that drives me furious chasing those down to close them out, just because I want to read a news story, another thing is when a commercial just starts talking to me after reading a story for a few minutes, and I have to find where it is to close it, sometimes I have to exit out of the site because I can not find it, ugh!

              I use browsers that block everything.

              No videos that automatically play, no ads, nothing. If a site tells me that they won't show any content without me disabling my ad blocker, I either pay for it or respect their wishes not to look at their content.

              I don't like it when websites download stuff on my computer without my permission.

                The Internet ads are annoying for sure. My current beef tho is with these new-fangled gas pumps with screens blaring ads at me while I pump gas.

                Eh, but it's just a little while longer.

                    AdBlocker Plus helps a lot, although now I sometimes get messages saying, "We noticed you're using an ad blocker..."
                    I don't mind some ads, since the content has to be paid for somehow. I just don't like the ads that interfere with my reading.
