Lightbox Ads
Quote:
Lightbox Ads can expand to show more content, like videos, games and even catalogues. This only happens when the user engages with the ad by hovering for more than two seconds

Took a look
[www.google.com]

hovered over ad in FF, boom came the screen
pressing ESC didn't close it
expanded window, found a big X to close
that too didn't close it
had to close whole tab
do I want my visitors hijacked this way?
NO
not unless it pays me 100 times current rate
enough to compensate for a visitor never coming back to my site again or telling her friends about my site!

You wouldn't want it in a page with (say) AdSense where it might expand and cover any part of any AdSense ad and cause a violation of their T&S, for example.

I aim to disable all such expanding or pop-up ads from other routes these days.
