OMG!!  Ron, can we please get rid of that blasted "airline" banner?  That flashing is about to put me into an epileptic seizure!

Woe to the poet that has that banner on the page...I exit quickly. Makes me sick to my stomach! Why would anyone want their banner to do that?

I don't know I like the Smokey the bear banner... makes me aware that forests are flammable and that pouring petrol on trees and lighting a match is not a wise thing to do. Besides just scroll down and block out the banners. Advertising is a sad fact of life and at least there is no sound, no movement would help as well. THey can get a bit annoying at 3 am in the morning.

The Airlines one is bad enough,
but the Casino-On-Line is even worse !
I clicked on both of them to try to get
an e-mail address so I could write and tell them
just how annoying they are.
Couldn't get one for the Travel Group pushing
free airline tickets without registering -
but did get one for the Casino place and wrote them an advisory letter.

At least we get credit for having visited them ! ! !  

A small annoyance for the privilege of this place ....
Gee .... I've seen billboards I didn't like too ...
but of course they weren't right in my face !

Oh, well ...

I have the airline one now!!!!!!!
AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm about to take my frustration out on the screen, instead of the keyboard!

False gems may shine as brightly as the genuine article, but there are always those who can tell the diffrence.

The most annoying one I think is the punch the monkey one. It is so annoying. All you see is the monkey going back and forth across the screen. You could win $20. Come on seriously, did anyone ever win the money???
