Oh, consider it done. That thing is a pain in my ass!
This thing is a menace.
It's plaguing sites all over the internet.
So, please send your complaint to Google and maybe they'll remove it.

Click on "text or image ad"
Give them your name.
then your address.
then select "No" to being an AdSense Publisher.
Then click "Image" as the type of ad.
Select English for the language of the ad.
Select "on a website" for where you saw the ad.
Right-click and copy this link, then paste it into ad link location box on the support form.
For feedback, select "I don't trust the advertiser to deliver on their claims"
Then in the message box, explain that this is an ad for Bing that won't stop popping up.
You can also explain how it forces your cursor into their search box inside the ad.
Then politely ask them to do something about it.
I'll gladly complain...
I was annoyed by it here and there but lately it's been out of control and comes up everytime and takes my browser all the way to the bottom and starts typing for me. How can anyone think that's a good idea for an ad?
Better question is, why would Google allow it?
Not only an annoying ad, but one for their competition?
It's become a bad problem.
Anyone who runs Google Ads is dealing with this.
A LOT of people are complaining.
Have they done away with this severe nuisance? I haven't been plagued by it in at least a few days now. But when it was in effect, man it happened every time. Hopefully everyone's complaining worked and they NEVER do an ad like that again.
Ads should NOT move your browser and take priority over your text window. I also hate the ones that enlarge over everything trying to get you to click on them but we don't have to worry about those ones on here.
It's probably hiding, ready to attack again.
If it appears again, complain again!
And thanks to everyone who filed a complaint.
I'm sure it helped.
I don't see it but, from the sounds of it, that's a good thing.
Listening to the podcast now and was so happy to hear this brought up! Filled out the form and sent!

Emil switched it to text ads for now.
I don't think the problem has gone away, but we're going to try to wait it out.
Its not their right now cause for some reason their is a WoW ad now.
By the Power of Grey Skull!
I saw it still on other sites, so, I guess we still can't switch back yet.
I turned the image ads back on.
Let's see what happens.
It's probably lurking around the corner, ready to strike.
AHHHHHH It's back!!!
To this day I still don't know what this is referring to. Is it a popup of some sort? If it is, I've never seen it.
It's a horrible banner ad that also doubles as a search engine, and it forces your cursor into it.
It really sucks.
