    Hey, I know in the past that somewhere it said to post ads or something that become intrusive and they would be blocked/removed, but I'm not sure where, but this ad has been popping up a lot recently for me, whenever my mouse even moves over it it expands to about 1/2 the page.

    It says that in the FAQ:
    If you find a particular ad especially annoying (e.g., an ad that is oversized or has sound), let us know by posting a screenshot of it in our Site and Forum Feedback forum. If you can also tell us the URL it links to, that can help. Using this information, we can ask to have it removed from the ad pool.
    Can you or anyone else tell us the URL it links to?

    Sorry, I forgot to save it, but it has been popping up a couple of times a day for me so the next time it does I'll be sure to copy the URL.

    I was also annoyed and here is the link I found to the expanding ad:

    Thanks for providing details. We're requesting that the ad be removed from the rotation.

    I don't know if we failed to remove it or it returned to the ad rotation.

    In either case, we'll have to try again. Sorry.
