Is this stupid expanding musical Diaper ad driving anyone else crazy??

Expanding adds that stop you from being able to navigate the site are bad enough, but when the speakers are turned up so you can hear music or something else which runs quietly and then that damn ad pops up and screams at you, it's really a bit much!

  • Yep! I feel like I've already listened to it a million time, lol. At first I was like, "Wtf? Where is that music coming from?", haha.

  • No, I keep the computer on mute unless there is something specific I want to listen too on the computer.

  • I haven't heard it -- I use firefox with popup blocker. I don't see any ads on this site.

  • Yep, I think just a regular ad without sound and without expanding would be plenty enough. I keep accidentally clicking on the darn thing when it expands.

  • What am I doing wrong? I have Firefox and a popup blocker but I still get the ad.

  • I have not seen that one yet. But I have seen other expandable ads. Thank goodness! I don't think a pop up blocker works on it because it isn't technically a pop up it is on the page itself.

  • Install a pop up blocker. You'll never see any ads.

  • I have not seen that one but the Red Baron one CM had for awhile made me want to pull my hair out. All I had to do was go near it and it would open up! Right now the only ads I have seen on here is for the local Children's Hospital here in Akron, Ohio.
