Portrait Professional ads: obnoxious

We users aren't entitled to too much of a voice about what ads you accept, but allow me to observe that these animated portrait retouching ads are a) obnoxious on a few levels and b) probably aimed at the wrong audience.

If you find a particular ad especially annoying (e.g., an ad that is oversized, obscures the page, moves around, or has sound), let us know by posting a screenshot in our Site and Forum Feedback forum and telling us the URL it links to. Using this information we can ask to have it removed from the ad pool.
Can you post a link if you see it again?

Nor do I.

Ads are ads. They're usually all obnoxious and aimed at the wrong audience.

Perhaps the OP ought to become a contributor.

Ads that expand over the page or otherwise interfere with your view or interaction with the page, are obnoxious and ought to be removed/blocked.

This, however, is just another ad.
