My theory is that some websites, like yahoo mail, tvguide, and oregon live (the Oregonian newspaper web site) will put up an ad, then hang my computer for 30 seconds so I have no choice but to read ad, then return control of my computer to me

Is this a wack-o conspiracy theory or obvious?

Definitely, they will sometimes put the graphic for some button I have to use, without the function of the button being enabled, wait 30 seconds so I have to read the ad, then put in the functionality of the button
