There is an ad that is everywhere on the Bee for me today. On the sides, at the top, in the middle…It’s an old lady holding up a sign that looks like a tombstone that says something about pensions. It’s one of those roll-over ads so I have to be careful not to hover the mouse over it.
I just had a scare. I had a bunch of tabs open for topics I wanted to read. I open one of the tabs and there’s the old lady’s head taking up the entire screen. My monitor is big. It made me jump. Scary!
Anyone else have any really annoying ads that seem to appear now and then? The roll-over ones are the absolute worst.

InstallAdblocker and you won’t see any ads.

I have adblocker but a few still seem to sneak through every once in a while. I just had a big one for early pregnancy testing as my boss walked by. >.> awesome.

No ads because of AdBlocker, but your description of the old lady and the tombstone reminds me of these prepaid cremation postcards I keep getting in the mail. I’m like, I’m 39–WTF?!? Worst thing is that they don’t say ‘neighbor’ or ‘resident’. They have my full name on them. Like someone signed me up.
Probably one of my students…or my husband.

MrsGatito: UGH that add is making me insane! When I access WB from my macbook (safari) it randomly starts playing this full screen video on almost every page refresh. Makes me stabby.

That’s definitely creepy and I would be so weirded out by that too haha. I’d suggest getting an ad blocker. I use Chrome. If you use it too, you can download a free app called AdBlock. Hope this helps!
