and I realized I love Google's policies for display ads
Yes. As I was reading the news online, I was assaulted by video ads that started automatically. With sound. The loud, disruptive kind.
Image ads with a close button that triggered a pop-under anyway.
Overall, ads took ages to load on those pages and pretty much made the reading experience impossible.
I don't know what goes through the minds of the editors over there, but in my opinion, throwing 12+ ads of all kinds on one page is not the way to go. Starting ads with loud audio automatically and waking up the house is not the way to go, either.
And the networks who allow and publish such ads should take a long look at Google's policies and reconsider theirs.
