    So I just decided to go see all the happy stuff going on in the Raves thread, and once I click the link I get this.



    A full page ad with automatic sound AND video. Is this going to start happening often? Normally I don't mind the little ads in the corner, but this is way over the line.

    I hate this add as well. Takeover adds like that are quite annoying.

    There should not be any takeover ads here. If one occurs please make a screenshot of the top AND bottom banners and post them.

    It is somewhat difficult to ID the banners AFTER the take over ad has taken over. We cannot see them anymore.

    I am getting the same GamerDNA B.S. ad. Please make it stop. It is truly awful.

    Whoever that is. I guess she's going to be on the new season of 30 Rock, which I'm sure means she's a great and talented comedian that I will enjoy seeing interact with Tracy Jordan, but that doesn't mean I want to see her covered in moss and pointing a high-powered rifle at another woman on my computer screen.

    (Which brings up another issue. She fake shoots at some one the in commercial. Is simulated assassination of another person really acceptable in a shill for a commercial product? Maybe I am getting old (my b-day is Friday), but that sure seems a bridge too far.)

    She is like children, better seen than heard. Or neither, preferably.

    Repeated for relevance. It's much harder to track them down without the screenshots.

    Well it's the same one shown in the OP. The entire ad covers the entire page, covering the banners.

    :lol: I will never forget.


    Yeah, this add is bad for me because it actually fails to takeover my screen, but it still takes priority. So I can't close it, nor scroll around etc. I can't even see it, just little slivers of it at the top if I haven't already scrolled down.
