Ads next to scroll bar

Postby abqwriter » Tue Feb 07, 2006 6:20 am

I see there are now ads next to the scroll bar every time I click on someone's post.

I understand they help pay the bills, but I hate the location!  Several times when I've meant to click on the scroll bar, I accidentally click on an ad that redirects the entire screen.

Ugh.

While I also think they're obnoxious - and one of the reasons I won't visit the Drudge Report and other sites that use them - I just wish above all that there was a way to move them somewhere away from the scroll bar.  It's annoying when using a laptop to now have to be extracareful about clicking or know I'm going to get redirected somewhere.

How about along the bottom of the screen.  We promise to click once in a while to keep WD in the dough!

Use the arrows or the page up/down.  no scroll, no accidental hit.

They're tacky, all right. And, really, does anyone ever, for any reason, actually click on one of these things intentionally?

It didn't take you very long to notice them.

They do have them at the top of some pages and on the left-hand side of others. So, I'll see if we can do anything about the placement, but I can't make any promises.
