I just came on to the board and was assaulted by two large banners of an ad for a movie (The Sapphires) running all the way up either side of this board!!!!  Is this how we will be seeing ads from now on, or just for this movie, for some reason?  I am not impressed...  It's just TOO MUCH in your face.Ugh.

This may have been a temporary or one-time thing for that ad.  I don't see it now.  Did anyone else see this large photo ad that filled up both sides of the board's page?

I have not seen the full side ad for that movie (in fact I don't think I've seen any ads for that movie) but I have seen the full side ads several times over the past few months. And yes, they are "in your face" aren't they? Hard to ignore. Fortunately they seem to go away after a few moments. I suspect that we will be seeing more of that type of advertising, more moving ads in general. I'm not fond of them because they seem to slow down the loading of the page. At least we don't see ads between the posts like we did with Lithium.
