Default ****ing Roll Over Ads!!

ARGH.. they are getting in the way of me typing even this... Every time your mouse crosses their path they take up half the screen, have no X for close, and don't always retract like they should when you mouse over them again. Even if you close it the first time, if your mouse touches that area again, bam, half your screen is covered again. Repeat that over the 3 nvnews tabs I have open, and every time I change tabs, BAM, half the page covered in a video ad again.

After a while you start to get in the habit of dragging your cursor to the side of the screen when moving it to the tabs or menus at the top of your browser window, to stop the stupid thing covering your window again.

Am I the only one who has noticed this? Is this the future of the web, where you can't actually use websites for anything because you can't see them for the ads?

I don't mind ads, as long as they are not obtrusive. The banner ads here that roll down and block everything and won't close really piss me off. So, sorry to say, and I get flack for this, I have blocked all ads on this site.

I just run the 64-bit version of IE. Solves many of these "problems".

The only ads that bother me are the drop down ads. The rest don't bother me.

Only get those on this site when I use Internet Exploder at work...

I use chrome at home and I only get the google text ads on this site.

Those ads also make navigating the site on my phone more difficult. (Drois Eris 2.1 w/Dolphin Browser)
