Annoying animated ads on and other similar sites

Postby frustrated_fan » Sat May 13, 2017 4:41 am

Recently I've become extremely annoyed with the animated ads on travel sites saying things like "8 people have booked this hotel in the past 24 hours". The annoyance is because of the steady stream of similar ads that appear over and over again. At first I clicked on the x to close the ad, then a new one would appear just as my concentration was regained. Then I ignored the ad but found that the windows dissappearing cause an equal amount of distraction. My concern is not the ads but the distraction that the animation causes me. I've noticed a growing trend in sites implementing this. Examples are,,, to name a few.

Are there power users out there that can help compose a solution to this? I am willing to purchase software that could do it. There might even be revenue in it for Adblock Plus if you could negotiate a deal with those sites to stop those ads for a fee.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
