Annoyed by these ads...

Particularly thes ones that cause the screen to move... It drives me crazy when I go to click on a post and I miss it because the screen starts moving as some advertisement at the top of the page expands!!

Seriously, it makes me not want to buy the product...

Ok, that was my vent for the day!

Hi Jules,

I'm sorry you are so frustrated with the ads. Do you know what specific ads you are having trouble with? Please let me know and I'll be sure to pass your comments on.

I think she's referring to the ones that appear in the banner at the top of the page below the main header. They frequently expand just as you're about to click on something, so you end up clicking on the wrong thing or scrolling further down only to have to scroll back up when the ad collapses.

Kristy, I've also noticed a few ads that are really out of place for an EC board. Specifically the ones for condoms and weight loss.

The ones that Donna described are the ones I am talking about. The one for Florida's Natural OJ is the current offender but there have been other brands in the past that have done the same thing.

Hi Donna,

Thanks for letting me know. I've passed on your comments Do you happen to remember any details about the ads for weight loss? What company or product was included? Any details you can remember would be great and I'll be sure to pass it on. Thank you!

I remember it being at the bottom of the page and something about having a slimmer stomach in 30 days if you followed this simple rule... (you had to click to learn more). Also it was a simplistic black and white cartoonish drawing of a women getting slimmer and slimmer. If I see it again I'll try to get more details.

Certainly women who are 6 mos pregnant are not going to be worried about having a slimmer stomach in 30 days -it's just not realistic. Maybe after we all deliver it would be a more appropriate ad.

I just saw a slim fast banner (brown: easy as 1-2-3) go across as I was reading one of our discussion threads
