This morning there is a new banner ad taking up a good portion of my lower window (maybe an eighth or more) placed in the lower part of the screen. It's not closeable and everything is scrolling behind it. I do not like it, it is intrusive. I avoid asiaxpat because their ads and page format are shocking- don't go their way!
I accept advertising is necessary but you have to allow people to view your site- irrelevant and badly placed ads do not help that to happen.
