What the hell is wrong with the ads on CafeMom?

I can't stand it. Look at that image:

The ads do NOT close when the X is clicked and worse, no matter WHERE I click on the page it keeps sending me to Target. I didn't click on the ad, I clicked in the middle of the post!
I'm sure Target would LOVE to know that they are paying for clicks when people have no desire to visit their site. .

I'm sure this post will be deleted!

  • I haven't had severe problems with this but I know others who have. You should report it using the contact us link. They are usually pretty good about fixing it. be sure to tell them which ads because they don't always see what we see.

  • It happens with the Walmart Ad's driving me nuts. I am sick of the Ads expanding....if I want to click on it I will.

    Whoever is getting paid for the clicks must be making a bomb.....because I have been clicking away just to try and get rid of them!!
