Full Screen ads

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
While I hate full screen ads and would rather not have them at all, I'm ok with it because I can skip them with the skip link. But on my PC at work, with the resolution set to 1024x768 I cant scroll down on the page to click on the link. The ad is too big and it's pushing the skip link below the bottom of the page. I don't know why the vertical scrolling isn't working. I'm using IE6 at work. It's getting annoying having to wait a full 10 seconds periodically for an ad to go away.

I am still amazed how people can tolerate all these ads and do nothing about it!!

Just use firefox and adblock and never see an add on AI again!

It's not a pop up. It's a full screen commercial like ad that shows up before the page you clicked on does. You mean you haven't run into any of these?

No, never! I have at other sites though (without seeing the actual add, of course).

Please send a PM to Kasper about this and point him to this thread ... this isn't right, as ads like this shouldn't be served to our users. Probably a glitch.

They do come rather infrequently but I've had about 3 come up most recently in the thread about the razerpro keyboard/ipod dock. However I assume it's rather random.
