A new evil has descended upon the internet. Not quite as annoying as pop up ads, but at least as insidious. That evil: rollover ads.

I’ve noticed a number of Flash-based banner ads that popover the browser window when you roll over them. So far I’ve mostly seen this on facebook while playing Mob Wars. The insidious part is that all it takes is a wayward swipe of the mouse to trigger this nonsense.
