Talking Ads

Well it happened again! I am quietly minding my own business and replying to discussions (like a good mylotter should) and suddenly, AND without warning.. I hear someone screaming that I just won a Nintendo Wii! I nearly jumped out of my skin! GEE!!, I HATE talking ads! Whoever thought it was a good thing to place here... I have one word for you! "BOO!" I hope that scared you! Have you had this happen to you yet??? Do you find them as annoying? what is the most annoying thing you have seen on a site.. when it comes to advertising? I nearly slung my keyboard out the window! lol!
