There is a website I frequent that has these vertical banners on the right side of the page.
The ads got progressively bad.
First ads were flashing on/off in obnoxious colors.
next were the audio invasions where if you accidentally rolled over the banner it yelled at you.
Then there cartoonish animations that would repeatedly try to distract you.
Now there are video clips of movies and what equates to whole commercials playing.
It sucks so bad.  It slows up everything.  You cannot turn it off.  It will refresh as soon as the page changes and it starts all over again.

It torments me to the point where I have to slide the whole window to the right just to avoid seeing it.Angry
was feeling nostalgic

Couldn't agree more on you. Especially if you're listening to your media player music and a loud ad comes up and says something like CONGRATULATIONS YOU HAVE JUST WON A FREE NINTENDO WII! Oh is it irritating as well as it takes forever to shut up!
and it ends up making my computer freeze sometimes.
