See for yourself. It appears like that when you hover over the "scroll over for details" button.
Umm, thats Cadillac, not toyota.
maybe this ad will no longer appear now that there's a thread about it, just like how long john silver's annoying ad banners seem to have since disappeared from the ad rotation. But I agree, these ads are a nuisance! I can't imagine who would be enticed by that type of ad to then click it, regular ads are annoying enough. But sadly, since these ads continue to exist someone must be clicking them. Hopefully clicks gained from these types of ads won't exceed clicks gained from normal ad banners causing these annoying ads to become more popular in ad rotations.
We've been removing ads that protrude out of the banner area on their own. This ad apparently changes size only if you hover, and it tells you to hover. We may decide not to remove ads based only on their hover behavior since it's not clear that this is as big a problem as the ads that obscure parts of the site no matter what you do.
Does anyone else experience a large cars.com add covering the top of the screen? I'm using FF 3.0.14 and the cars.com add blocks the top article header and anything above it.
I have been getting the same thing, very obnoxious. Here's a picture:
At least you have the 'x close' button at the bottom right of the ad. I do not.
Perhaps the problem is unreasonably short mouse over time
that triggers the ad, like the recent adobe ad?
I think I'm lucky, the adverts in my region seem to be a lot less obtrusive/annoying.
I've been seeing a lot of these here lately. You don't even have to hover for an instant... if you go from the screen up to your navbar/bookmarks, it will trigger it, and it forces you to X it out to close it.
There is also a cars.com ad running on macrumors that behaves the same way. It's profoundly intrusive and annoying.
Just got a Porsche ad. Might be from third party?
Again the problem is the almost instant rollover time
I was totally just about to complain about these, I don't mind banner ads I just don't like it when I accidentally roll over them and then the article I'm reading is covered with a Castrol ad.
