I understand the need for advertising on a free-to-consumer site, and that advertisers need to try new and different things to get our attention. But I cannot stand the near-full page ad that pops up sometimes when I click on an article link. It obscures everything until I click something to reduce it. I honestly don't even know what it is advertising - when I see it, I swear and immediately reduce it. If I ever do look long enough to see who/what it is, I will know to avoid it. The ad is almost as annoying as those ads that pop up in the middle of a page and stay in the same screen position when you try to scroll past them (thankfully I have not seen those on Techspot.). Thank you.
