Thread: Automatically expanding ads
Lean Cuisine ad at the top of the page automatically expands and shows a loud video when the mouse rolls over it. It displays a countdown so you can move your mouse away, but it still loads the ad when you switch from tab to tab.
or BN plus.
i can't stand it, makes each page very slow too and it is easy to click the ad by accident when you try and [x] it out. its very misleading and seemingly takes advantages of many of us.
I don't want to run adblock since this site runs off ad revenue and I want to support that; if only there was a version of adblock that only stiffed annoying ads like this.
BN plus has an option where u can turn them off, admittedly not for everyone.
+1, wow really? 10x worse than the Levi's ad. Obnoxiously LOUD video, NSFW. WTH does lean cuisine have to do with fragrence anyway, sheesh.
Expanding ads will be the end of the internet and any entity that decides to use them WILL NOT get my business....lol. I'll get BN plus when the get RID of expanding ads.

It's a vodaphobe ad today.
Huge.. it's 75ml down the screen
Can u install ADblock? - free browser add-on - stops the ones that follow u down the page too
Seems to work on a few (inc. Safari):-
and for windows users:-
BUT read this too (Android).....
I'm getting that Walkers crisps pop up everytime I move to a another page, no matter how many times I close it. It is so annoying, ahhhhhhhhhhh.
Me too with the walkers ad. It's bugging the hell out of me. I remove it very carefully so as not to activate it, then as soon as i change page... pop... back it comes. Ha ha, here it is again....... This is really putting me off posting stuff as it is right where I want to be......
If you are using Internet Explorer I found you can go to tools then internet options then click on the security tab. Press the restricted sites and where there is a tab for sites add basenotes net address and it will stop the never ending pop adds. Downside is that you will have to keep logging in every so often.
Yeah, getting these also (just posted about it in 'Off Topic' section as I'd not seen this thread).
TOTALLY F**CKING ANNOYING - Grant, please make it stop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Found out another better way to stop that Walkers Crisps advert, click on tools in internet explorer if you are using that browser and on the list just click on active x filtering and that stops the add from popping up all the time.
I will look on safari because it is seriously maddening when it suddenly pops into the way.
Nothing found but of course the ad isn't doing it now. If that was you killing it Grant, then thank you.
