This is a short rant: I find online advertisements which look like links, albeit in a different colour or underlined double, highly obnoxious. These advertisements highlight certain words on a web page: when you hover over those words, advertisements appear in a speech-bubble-like box. I really hate them. I don’t know whither my visceral and intesne hatred to these advertisements have come, but I cannot repress it. I hate them to the extent that if I spot such advertisements on a page, I almost invariably hit the browser’s ‘back’ button.
