Chatty Forum Ads

    A forum ad started talking to me when I arrived on a forum page. Does HP allow that? If not, I'll try to remember whose ad it was next time.

      It may have been a rogue ad that Google has since removed.
      If you notice it again, the easiest way to convey the specific ad to us is via a screen shot.

    I just had that happen when I was reading a Hub.  It was down at the bottom of the page so I didn't even see it right away, and they were speaking Spanish.  Freaked me right out.

    If we're going to annoy our readers with intrusive ads can they at least be in the same language as our text?

      You are cracking me up. I hope you're not serious. If so, maybe you have a virus.

        I don't think so.  It was one of the square ads at the bottom of the page.  It was a video advertisement for some kind of food or something.  Wish I knew what product it was but, you know, no habla espanol.
