Don't you hate the ads that look like real computer menus? Like this:


Those annoy me because I used to always think they were really there, and when I clicked the arrow it took me to the site.

I particularly hate the ads that have an X (to exit the ad) in their pop-up, but it's only a part of their graphics, and when you hit the X, it takes you to their website.

I test them.  If my pointer turns into the pointing finger no matter where on the graphic it is.  I know it's all one big link to the same place.

I hate those.  I would always fall for them, all because I wanted it out of my eyesight
