The ads on most online sites are getting ridiculous nowadays. Plastered on the top, sides, bottom and IN whatever your looking at. Example: while surrounded with ad's, they start with a title, a sentence, then you have to scroll down past more ads for the photo, then you have to scroll down some more ad's to get to the description of photo', Then you have to scroll down through more ad's to get to the "Next Page" button!Angry Such as interesting topics on cars, military or one like one I just looked at: (Clint Eastwood was featured on first page)
You’ll Be Surprised by What These Celebs Did in the Military

I got so irritated with the distracting ad's all over the place, I shut it down after #4.
I'm clicking on sites less and less now. Angry

Jack knows me! LOL!

Yep, I hate the darn things. I understand they are necessary but it is very excessive!
I especially hate pop ups. They tend to block whatever you are reading! Doh!

A lot of podcasts are going this route also. Ads peppered throughout. I've started deleting podcasts on my play list if the ads are excessive. Again, I understand the need to make bucks but ads in excess get dropped from me looking or listening!
