Talking ads? Are you kidding me?

    Is PF really allowing advertisements that speak to you? Wow, that is freaking annoying.

    I don't have to put up with ads on PF since I'm a contributor, but I once came across a talking ad on another site, and I nearly jumped out of my chair! When you aren't expecting an ad to start talking, it's a pretty startling thing (and a disincentive to visit the site from work).

    Blinking ads are annoying too, so if I can't just scroll down to push them out of view, I often stop visiting sites with them.

    It's been reported. We already actively block ads to quack sites when they get reported.

    It's really bad if you use mozilla and open up several tabs at once.

    I didn't notice any on PF, but these days the "get a college degree over the internet" one is everywhere. It's better than the porn one which was all over the internet 5-6 ago... For example, you would search in google and open a bunch of web pages and suddenly someone would start talking about ****ing.

    I don't think I would mind, so long as it wasn't the one that Monique showed us a while ago. That one would not be nice. :frown:
