Hover-over PopUps

I have an annoying as all get out popup ad that opens if the cursor even passes over the ad, with no click. What's the deal with it? Mine is for Fiddler on the Roof at Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth.

Hi James,

Considering you have your location listed as DFW, that sounds location-based. Can you please post a screenshot of the ad? Is it on the top or side of the page that expands when you mouse over it?

Sure, here is a screenshot. It's both on the top and bottom of the page, and pops up a whole new window. And forgive me, the ad has changed to Music Hall at Fair Park. It must have been in Fort Worth last week.

Thank you. And it opens a new window just by mousing over it? Or is that pop-up unrelated to the ad?

It opens up a new window just by mousing over it. The popup is to ticketmaster to buy tickets for it.

Any updates? This is still quite annoying and seems to be the only ad doing it to me.

I've reported it, but it's up to the ad network to turn it off. It also appears to be location-specific.
