Since I am not paying anything to use this site I suppose my observation will not be taken with much weight.
However, I certainly don't mind ads, but ads with blaring "noise" as I am trying to answer someone's question ist nicht gut. I find it so annoying that I just killed the screen.
As an old programmer I have constantly found it interesting to see apps out there for which the designers spent little or no time actually seeing how it is being used in everyday situations.
At least for me when it is so annoying that you just want it to stop, it would seem that whoever is paying for the ad is being counter productive. Maybe that is just me.
This seems to happen only in the desktop and not on my iPhone. If the advertisers want to be really obnoxious then by all means double down ;-)
