Should ads that mimic StackOverflow UI be allowed?
I've noticed lately that advertisers have been making their ads very closely resemble stack overflow styles (for example, AtalaSoft makes their ad look like an accepted stack overflow answer, with almost the same color and complete with tags, etc...). I think Startups.com also has something like this.
Anyways, it's really annoying, and doesn't allow me to ignore advertisements since I will subconsciously identify the advertisement as an accepted answer or something else important.
It is however, very noticeably affecting my experience on the site. I would suggest some type of authentication process for ads (though I'm assuming you certainly have this).
