That scented candle ad....

That scented candle ad....

drives me crazy! While it's onscreen, I can't type for a full minute or so. What an unfriendly user-interface that is.... :evil:

I get it also! :evil:
If I did buy scented candles, I would make a point of not buying that particular one!
Fortunately that's not likely to happen anyway, as I have a fierce reaction to candles, soaps, etc.
I try to hold my breath when I'm walking through a cosmetic/candles/soaps department - sometimes I even run! :wink:

I was getting it too. Very annoying until I saw the word close printed in black to the right of it. click on "close" and it will go away and just be careful where you sweep your cursor across the page so it won't come uo

Oh ya

That ad is more than annoying today. It is popping up every time I go to post and it doensn't matter where my cursor goes on the page

I guess that is one way of getting attention, but it is a bit much.

Saw the invasive fumage from an unnatural source Friday mebbe and found the exit door. Felt like I'd been accosted randomly by a desperate hired perfume/cologne/toilet water sprayer at large in a department store. It WAS over the top....and off to the side. In my opinion, trying to be quicker on the draw to get the forum up and running smoothly rather than nitpicking on advertising however amusing/disgruntling which keep these formerly/hopefully forever friendly forums afloat should be as big a concern as the hands that feed us. Forum-wise.

MareE;o} think I did a convoluted something or other....LAFFS And also my apologies to any noses out of joint by my thoughts
