California Milk Ad

= Homicidal urges.
Good god that ad is annoying, it all but shuts my browser down and takes over the whole screen. Not sure if I'm the only one pestered by it.
Count me in. Lately the Adchoices bits are more "aggressive" - you have to rollover to see the annoying parts, and there is a 3-2-1 countdown, but if you are inattentive (as I am) and let the mouse wander off of the scrollbar, you get the popup before you realize it. Maybe the "solution" (that Adchoices wants) is for the page layout to have them at the center of everything, so that it's away from the scrollbar. The whole thing is a bitter pill, even if I understand why the TD team wants to see some revenue.
Correction: the Milk ad seems to pop up when I first enter a forum page, even if I have carefully kept my mouse away - in keeping with the OP's observation. It was a Scotch Tape ad (also AdChoices) I had seen yesterday, and communicated to John Bonnes, that seemed only partly anti-social because it gave a short count-down before popping up. To me, "rollover" is inherently antisocial if it results in a popup or audio; I want to click before anything overt happens.

It will be taken care of after the new year when people go back to work and I can get this fixed.
