    Do you find the ads very sensitive and have actually been activated while just scrolling up a hub?

    It seems to me that the ads are so sensitive that one can easily be activated (for lack of a better word) while just lightly scrolling up or down a hub.  As soon as I realize this has happened, I exit as quickly as I am able to do so!  What surprises me is that there was no intentional clicking on the ad but just scrolling up by one.  Have you found the ads to be very sensitive?

    It's not the ads that are sensitive but whatever device you are using to access the web/Hubpages.

    If you're using a PC or laptop there are settings that can be changed to make the mouse/mousepad less sensitive. I'd link to instructions, but they will be different depending on which operating system you're using.

    I have noticed this Faith not so much at Hp and hubs as just in my email or surfing. The scroll bar I think or ads near it have become more sensitive to open. There are times I am sure I have not clicked on an ad (which of course I never do) and a page opens ups and scares me really! Til I see what it is anyway. Just a new gimmick.

      Hi Jackie, thanks for answering.  I just do not want to get penalized for unintentionally scrolling over an ad and it pops up when I did not click on anything.

      Yes, I see now. That would be bad. Well I would leave ads off til you finish the hub, less likely afterwards maybe? I don't have that problem in hubs, strange, but maybe it is something new that will affect me. Some have been mad being accused.

      Oh, ok, I see. Well I would think that would be OK, aren't we allowed to? I think so. In fact I keep meaning to go back to a couple of interest to order.
