Seriosuly? The full screen surface ad was bad, but this is almost as annoying

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.

All ad types are displayed with the consent of the end. This kind is risky but delivers more monies.

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

I wouldn't jump into a LOLBIGNEOBONDWANTZMONIE$ conspiracy just yet. 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 guess Firefox blocks this out -- I've never seen it.
