CPU Hogging Ads
I agree. I hate it when ad companies hires someone who have done some flash in the past but have no idea that ads are a bit different. In Flash ADS you should never use filters and your FPS should be MAX 12.
There's a swedish newspaper (Aftonbladet) whose website is full of flash adverts that make the page take time to even scroll. I mean, come on!
One way I've found to prevent the lag is like this. First of all, I don't know if this works for all browsers but I'm using Opera and it seems to work there. Example: when I play games at nitrome it lags a little because of the ads. Not much, but it gets annoying. Basically, I resize the browser window to be about the same size as what I'm viewing, in this case the Nitrome game, and then scroll there so that only the game is visible in the browser window and not the ads. In Opera, the ads won't get drawn then and there is less lag.
This is, of course, more or less a theory but it seems to work for me.

go to a website and a load of ads pop up, then for the rest of the day on that website no more ads ever pop up!
Hehe, that is a great idea!
