I was surfing the web a few years ago, looking for information on a video game. So there I am at a game site, and what blows onto my screen?
 

                                                                                                                             This piece of Java-infected scum!!

And you know why this ad pisses me off so much? Because YOU CAN'T GET RID OF IT!! You can't click it away unless you want to transmit your damn personal information to the greedy, thieving Monopoly people (or whoever the bungholes are that host it), and you can't scroll up or down the page because the phucking cokksucking piece of shiit eyesore FOLLOWS YOU!!, and you CAN'T READ THE WEB PAGE IT COVERED UP!!!!!
That's right - it follows you, staying planted smack in the center of your screen. You have to dump off the website you were on or close down your goshdarn browser to get rid of it.

Here is a shot of what the pussywhipped piece of shiit looks like on your screen, so you can punch the RESET button before those phucking buttlicks that own the ad get a penny of revenue. 
 
This ad sets the bar to a new low when it comes to web adverts.

At least with pop-unders, they won't bother you until you shut down, and with pop-ups, there is a "minimize" button to get rid of it - or clicking anywhere on your screen gets rid of it - or in the case of X10 ads, you can put in a little cookie and never have them even appear again.
But with this one, there's no way to hide it or run away from it. The entire ad SCROLLS WITH YOU and covers up whatever you were reading.

Whoever invented this ad should be welded inside a phucking sealed pipe and buried in a cesspool.

While I agree with you, the ad clearly does say CLOSE on the bottom right hand corner :)

It usually just takes a while to find the close link on most of these ads.
Dad! The cable is out again CAN YOU FIXTH THIT!?

I don't trust their close buttons.
 
I usually right click on it from the taskbar and close it there.
 
OK:  How about those ads that cascade stuff down at you from the top, and then swirl around your screen for about 10 seconds?  They're fancier than the ones we've talked about,  above.  I hate them.  I usually just seethe and wait for them to finish their thing.
Let's try not to be boring, mkay?

I hate these types of ads I remember one with a talking women for Toyota, you couldn't get away from her.

However, I really really like to play games with these ads by scrolling up and down really really fast it takes it longer to set in the center of the screen ( it ends up at the bottom or the top.) and I start bragging that it can't keep up with my scrolling. However you have to do this constantly at a fast pace or else it'll settle in the middle of the screen.LOL
One good thing about TV-you could always turn it off

Kinda.  I think I've experience that one and it was annoying.
 
What I referred to above was more along the lines of 'falling leaves' coming down from the top of the screen, blowing around, etc.

I refuse to use the "CLOSE" button on this type of banner because there is a small but not insignificant chance that the ad could snoop into your computer and walk away with personal information while it appears to "close" onscreen. Angry
 
The safest way to remove this type of ad is to use the "Reset" button on your computer; closing your browser session would come in second...you could always spawn another browser window rather easily if you had multiple sessions open and needed that window again.
