    These Circuit City ads are VERY annoying. And for that, I will purpose avoid that place this shopping season.

    This sounds like bullshit for "We will remove it when we want"! I hope not all companies in the industry are run like that...

    This is code for "we don't care what you or your site's users think, we're running these ads and you can't do a thing about it."

    That sure is a real nice company you work with.

    The ad company sure is jerking you guys around. You tell them to pull the animated ads and now they give you audio ads.

    Surveys? What surveys? When I am suckered into clicking I am taken to the Circuit City site, not to some survey.

    We just found the last culprit. Should take 4-8 hours to propagate and then I hope we are golden.

    That's the talking Iphone I got last night. I got the Wii a couple times today as well, in the same spot as the Iphone one.

    Edit: Just got two talking Wii ads on the same page. Double the pleasure, double the fun I suppose

    Are the talking ads still there? Who is the advertiser?

    The expandable ads should be all gone by now. Tell me if you see one.

    I got one this morning at the office - I'd say it was around an hour ago or so. I don't know the advertiser but it is a "congratulations" to announce that I might have won a Wii.

    Tell me about it, that sh*t is annoying.

    I also have to put down my speakers, sometimes a guy's voice appears too.
