to be added to my do not buy this company's products list?
bloody annoying grangers ad taking up FAR too much of the screen in an excessively persitent manner.
granger's is getting closer and closer to the manufacturer's bin.
(i thnk most people who view this at work - the huge majority? - have no choice over what browser to use nor able to do anything about it)
and really feckin annoying if you are not in full screen mode.
mmmm. i wonder if it will make this site unusable on a netbook, ipad or phone?
> I wonder if these companies realise the adverse effects ads such as this one can have?
Is it the companies, or their advertising agencies? Admittedly, if I engaged an advertising company to work for me, I'd carefully check their work before it was foisted on the public...
Of course, I have no idea what advert you're talking about (FF + AdBlock + FlashBlock...)

I dont mind static ads but these scrolling/enlarging ads are very annoying. Dont people realise how annoying it is when these ads are purposefully placed in such a way that you are bound to move your mouse over and activate all the time.
To me its like junk mail
Dont want to get too excited but I think it's gone. Can anyone confirm this ? I've been waving the mousepad around and there's no sign of it. Please let it be true
It wouldn't be so bad if once you had closed the ad at start, it didn't keep 'popping' up on other pages.
That's the thing that feckin annoys me the most!!
I'll not buy Granger's if I can avoid doing so. As in, I can't get a cleaning product I need from somewhere else, I'm almost sure I can.
I know OM needs advertising to keep going, but some ad's just go over the top and feck peeps off!!
Hi guys. Just so you know, the commercial team are aware of this and it's something they'll definitely take into account before scheduling any similar ads in the future. I've also asked for the settings to be tweaked, so it appears less frequently to individual users and I'll see if it's feasible for it to be limited to one appearance per user session.
Ultimately, it's not in our interests to alienate anyone. I think people generally appreciate that OM's a commercial site and it it weren't, it wouldn't exist. It's a fine line between attracting attention and attracting the wrong sort of attention.
I don't think there's any sinister 'all publicity is good publicity' undercurrent here - I don't think we're that clever or sinister to be absolutely honest...I know I'm not anyway.
And with that, I'm off out into the Peak District sunshine.
