Kmart Gamer ads keep popping up on other sites aswell. I'm about ready to boycott them for their lack of giving me a break.

Play Spec Ops: The Line. No, seriously, play it. NOW! It's probably still on sale on Amazon for crying out loud! I wish more games had balls like this game does, paired with some of the best writing, mechanics, and level design that's been seen this side of linear shooters.

Stupid 5 Gum ad that auto plays some really annoying sounds before filling the screen with an animated graphic. There is a exit button and a mute button, which is nice, except for the fact that the clickable area stays. If you try to click anything below the ad, it takes you to their Facebook page.

This is the most annoying ad I have ever seen. If their clickable area didn't cover half the screen and STAY there I would be fine with it.

The Skyrim trailer ad, which is apparently gone now, used to drive me crazy playing every time my mouse passed over the banner.

Why are we even allowing ads that monopolize the entire screen? Nobody wants them and they certainly don't make me want to buy a product.

Aye, I don't get why companies think it will be a help instead of a hinderance.

Notice the ads are regional? Not everyone sees the same thing.

That and it seems to happen more often when you don't have an account logged in. I have twice as many ads when I don't login.

I never said it has to block everything - just the ones you find really really annoying. There's a setting option, ya know...
Other then that I rarely find any advertisements worth checking out anyway, but to each his own I suppose. Just sayin' :rolleyes:

People would be less likely to block ads that stayed in a corner or a banner, instead of spraying animated crap across the entire screen.

Yeah, I can't really think of any ad that inspired me to actually look into something.
