I remember first getting the internet the worst thing you had to look at was the occasional banner ad. Now it is getting to be almost as bad as cable TV. Can't watch a 30 second Youtube clip of somebody doing something stupid without being forced to watch an AD, same goes for any sort of on-line show. I always have liked to watch Nostalgia Critic. I never did mind to watch a 30 second ad for 20 minutes of show. Now his videos have 2 more ads stuck in the middle of them. Before on youtube only a few more popular videos had Ads but it seems like more and more are sticking them in there. Its one thing to watch a short ad when you plan to watch a 20 minute video. But it is BS to expect someone to watch a commercial when you have a 30 second clip.
Whats even worse is when you have to watch an Advertisement in order to watch an Advertisement. Go to watch a newer movie/game trailer and you get stuck watching an ad first many times.
This site has gotten just as bad as anything. I am looking at 4 advertisements right now, and it poped up a 5th ad when I first started typing this that wouldn't even let me X it out until waiting a few seconds.
