Yahoo - Sneaky Yahoo

Yahoo has made its navigation bars narrow to increase the chance that you will accidentally click on an ad. It now also moves the right navigation bar down when you open an email so that you have to navigate back up to the top, again increasing the chances that you will accidentally click on an ad.

Is a great inconvenience to the user and it is also unfair to the advertiser who has to pay Yahoo for the accidental clicks from people who are not at all interested in the ad. It is the sneaky thing to do.
