    I don't mind adds. Adds are good.
    I just don't like them screaming at me so I have to go chasing them down and turning them off.
    I don't care what they are selling when they start screaming out of no where.
    What ever it is their selling; at that point I know I don't want it.
    No screaming allowed on my computers.

    You and me three! I also detest the ads that are animated, pop up, or are positioned where it's almost impossible to avoid mousing over them, triggering a pop up or audio. Why the idiots think such tactics will endear their products or services to me is beyond me.

    I know ads are what support websites and I will look at ones that are of interest to me but too many advertisers have gone too far.
