Gmail Jumps the Shark?

preview
Gmail's new popup.

Is anybody else meta-annoyed by the new popovers that slap you in the face when you mouseover an address reference in Gmail?

These things are pretty absurd. Must be the AOL influence creeping in. I like some of the features represented, but the execution is all wrong, and it seems waaaay spammy.

By the way, you CAN turn them off. Choose the "standard without chat" view at the bottom of the screen.
