Molasses Advertisement in E-mail sites

Is it my imagination or are the ads in banners
tying up the rest of a web page being viewed and
getting slower by the day?
Whether it is NETFLIX, TARGET, WAL-MART and now
a SAMSUNG ad, and this things generically show in
HOTMAIL, YAHOO and all versions of MAIL.COM.
I do not know if these ads have any other tech name
so I call them "Molasses ads"

It's a side effect of the Head On adverts.

It appears that slow and dumb adverts work.

Re: Side Effect of adverts

I have those four outfits on my personal banned list.
Their messages do not respond to right clicking the object.
The adobeflash player they are supposed to run on if you
right click you get options like no looping but somehow
those ads get around it.
There are plenty of similar ads that dont freeze the page.

Thnx for the comments Bob

Thanks for the comments on adverts.
And by the bye there is this hideous 5-6 minute thing lousing up the AOL SERVICE by American idol I hear people cant even get into their mail.
