I'm not sure if ads are supposed to be like this. I got a huge ad at the bottom of a hub that is not even visible within a the frame of the website. I had to scroll to see the entire thing, and I didn't click on it or anything.
What Hubpages has to say about these ads in the FAQ:
What types of advertisements are considered unacceptable under the HubPages Ad Policy Guidelines?
In case you were wondering, the following is a list of some of the types of advertising that HubPages will not accept:
General: Advertisements that contain fraudulent, deceptive, or misleading statements or illustrations. Attacks of a personal nature.
Blinking/Jumping Ads: Advertisements that excessively blink or "jump around" in the ad space to gain attention are not acceptable.
Discrimination: Advertisements that fail to comply with the express requirements of US federal and state laws.
Offensive to Good Taste: Indecent, vulgar, or suggestive. This includes pornography.
Gambling: Advertisements promoting wagering sites or gambling.
Weapons: Advertisements for firearms and ammunition.
Tobacco: Advertisements for cigarettes or other tobacco products.
Error Boxes: Advertisements that mimic windows error messages.
Pop-Ups and Pop-Unders: Pop-ups generally open new web browser windows to display advertisements. Pop-Unders open a new browser window hidden under the active window. Both of these are violate HubPages' ad policy. The only exceptions to this rule are brand study surveys.
If you come across one or more of these types of advertisements while perusing HubPages, please contact us as soon as possible to let us know. Within your message, please try to include any or all of these:
URL of the exact page where the ad loaded.
Time and day the ad loaded.
Please try to grab and save a screenshot of the advertisement. You will not be able to upload along with the "Contact Us" form, but we may email you asking to see it.
At minimum, a written description of what the ad looked like: what category it belongs in, the brand being advertised, etc.
It looks like it would be acceptable according to the HP FAQ. No reason to report it. I guess it's just a personal preference of mine to not have ads that take up a football field size portion of your screen, but maybe that's what the cool kids are doing these days. I remember an implementation of new types of ads months ago that grew and moved based on your interaction (mouse over/click) but I didn't do that with this one. Maybe these big ones can help get my shrinking CPM back up.

I've about had it with the over-reaching, manipulative, short-sighted polices HubPages has enacted over the past few months. This morning I find three of my Hubs have been "snipped". The moderator has removed...
