    The interstitial ads are annoying but not as bad as the ones that completely take over a page after you’ve already started reading it. That’s unacceptable in my opinion.Report

    I used interstitial briefly on Gone Hollywood but quit. I do use those annoying green in-text link ads, though. Not a big fan — although I only find them annoying on cut-and-paste since they’re obviously distinguishable from the other hyperlinks — but they actually generate a surprisingly good return.Report

    Or, almost as bad, those annoying auto-generated links to a “topic” page on a news site.Report

    Agreed that the double underlined links are very irritating. If you ever get annoyed by TV ads as well I recommend checking out this site for a good laugh: http://adnoxious.blogspot.comReport
