I've been getting a lot of these large ads randomly lately, wonder if the ad company is trying to sneak them in to see if anyone notices..

This is why loads of people use adblock. I know its bad for sites but if enough people keep getting ads from sites like that, then they will go else where. Use ads that are not as intrusive and you will keep people. You will still make some ad revenue, maybe not as much as you would with the annoying ones but you will still keep people.

I think companies either do not disclose, or hide, the type of ads they are planning on displaying, hoping to get away with it for so long until the site owner says otherwise

I'm 99.9% sure and 101% certain that Neobond would not knowingly allow ads like that

There can be a lot of screw-ups along the chain. The media agency could be doing shady stuff with their impressions rate. Or the supplier screwed the target list.

I was suggesting the opposite!

"LOLBIGNEOBONDWANTZMONIE$" is what the advertisers want us to think, do not fall into their trap, it is made of honey and tastes as sweet as a walnut, but the sting is like that of a thousand bees

I have not seen any annoying ads on my end. I am really getting annoyed with some websites lately. I think there was an ad on Weather once where it was about 720 pixels large. It used javascript to slide down slowly, and slide up slowly. So when I scrolled down to actually see my weather, as soon as I clicked a day, the slide up started to work so I clicked on the wrong day.

Not to mention sites that have ads or videos that play sound automatically. Horrible web design work.
