Annoying front page Sun ad

By Joseph Moore ·
So, that was annoying, that Sun add on the front page! It covered the entire page, just under the TR banner on my 1024x768 display.
Flash popup ads that seem to float on top of the page are becoming normal to see, yes, but not at full screen size like that!
Come on, TR, decrease the size of that ad some!
Did it irritate anyone else, or is it just me?

Oh yes!

I thought I was seeing things. I instantly thought of Max's recent nightmare with the other ad that he kept seeing and wondered if it was my turn now.

The most annoying part is there is no close link until the ad minimizes into an acceptable postage stamp sized window.

I didn't try Alt+f4 as that kills the active open window, if I see it again maybe that'll work.

What were they thinking???

Yeah, I noticed that too! What's that about??? I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't appreciate this.

That won't work, I believe. Since the Flash image is really in the browser window frame, I don't think it will count as a seperate window. Alt+F4 should close the IE window, along with the ad.

All ads are annoying

Well, of course I was annoyed. However, I quickly remembered the "wall" ad they had a little while ago. Max had that one pop up EVERY TIME he visited the front page. It took them a while to straighten that out. But this, IIRC, is only suppose to be maxed once and then each successive visit should not see it. At least that is what I remember them claiming about the "wall".
