Okay…I’m on Adage.com. It’s a very good magazine covering the marketing and media scene. An ad for the Science Channel alongside the right side of the web page triggers a pop-up every-time my cursor skates across it. I hit the close box, and my cursor naturally flows below and to the right. The pop-up comes back. I close it. It comes back. I close it. It comes back. What the %$#@!*&!
Clever placement of the ad so that it keeps coming back and takes me four or five times before I figure out what is happening and why I can’t get rid of it. You would think that Ad Age would know better than to annoy it readers this way. And Science Channel…..Screw you.
