There are 2 ads on my home page and they are placed where my mouse keeps hovering...but I am not clicking on these banners but somehow they keep opening up....!  Grrrrrrrrrrr  I'm ready to scream!   Does anyone else have this problem?   Is there a way to make it stop?

This happens on other ads, also. I especially dislike the ones that have no X. When I'm on CC, I pay close attention to my mouse and often circle the page to avoid any ad. (I'm not on here as much as I used to be, so the irritation level has been reduced...)

I agree too many ads!!! It really makes CC less enjoyable!

Yup, the Abilify ad keeps getting me, too! I've accidently opened it so many times that now Google (or whaever internet big brother is out there) thinks I'm in the market for antidepressants icon_lol.gif and it follows me everywhere I go.

Yes, it's ridiculous, just hovering your mouse over there sets it off. And that's where I naturally hover to scroll down.

Maybe my pissed off-ness will turn to depression and I will just order me some and be done with it!

I think that may have been their plan.

And it's no accident that it's placed there either, which is even more aggravating. That's where most people naturally place their mouse, so chances are, you'll see it even if you don't want to.

There are some very effective and easy to install ad-blockers available for free.  Perhaps you could look into installing one of those, and then you'd not be bothered by ads any more.  The downside is that CC won't make any money from you accidentally clicking on the ad any more.

Yeah, but we're supposed to play "nice" and not block their ads. I say CC bend a bit and get rid of this particular type of pop up. Not too much to ask is it?
