Is anyone else getting really pissed off with....

this OfficeMax ad? Every time I go past it with my mouse it expands and I have to click the X to close it. I just wanna be on CM without having to close an ad every time I navigate to a different page!!!
... Maybe it's just me.

  • This always happens to me when I'm browsing. I hate that! You move over an ad and it covers your whole screen or takes you to another site entirely. Doesn't take much to close it but it's annoying!

  • Yeah, it's very annoying! I hate the ones that have the X somewhere, hidden, so it takes forever to find it. Like the car ones where the car comes driving over the screen so the whole page turns into an ad basically, and the X is at the bottom of the page or something.

  • I use Firefox for my internet browser, with the Ad Blocker Plus add on, and I have virtually eliminated all ads. It's so nice!!!

  • YES. I made a complaint in the CafeMom Discussion group but unfortunately it hasn't been dealt with yet. It's the worst ad ever.

  • Yes, I am having a problem with this too. It's driving me nuts!
