I just came across a very intriguing situation last week. While I was tracking Election news about the assembly elections in Delhi I was on a MSN news page and there I noticed the aberration.

An unwanted and un-relevant ad pops up at the bottom of the screen and does not let me read the news article further. Now I wish to close the add. But as soon as I position my cursor to the cross mark the cross marks moves to another location and the ad enlarges. Then I try to click the new Cross mark to close the add and again the cross changes position to the original position. I do that a couple of times and finally I click the add. Another popup opens which I close because I do not wish to see it. Then I could close the add.

Here is the screen recording for you as a proof of MSNs stupidity.

If you are an advertiser and invest in MSN / Microsoft ads please decide where you put your money. All that I remember from this is that Your brand annoyed me. You are unethical and you will follow any dirty means to achieve your goals.
