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.
