I understand the overwhelming greed and opportunism which drives people to make ever more intrusive and idiotic ads. If you've been surfing the web recently, you've probably noticed the 'fold down' traffic-light ads which have been literally popping up, obscuring large portions of the screen. At least, I presume that they're ads and not malware my protections just aren't picking up.

But what I find amusing is that you can CRASH these ads. Literally - these ads are COMPLEX enough that they CRASH under certain circumstances - pop up a script error box and everything.

That, I think, means you've officially GONE TOO FAR in advertizing.
