The idiocy of driving the Internet with mindless, useless ADS.

I am tired of having ads constantly pop up every time I go to download something, or visit websites where the button it looks like you’re supposed to click is really a link to an ad. Browser add-ons like AdBLocker Ultimate help, but every time we find a way to block these shit ads, a new twist is made.

Now ads have been made a part of the video player on some websites, so the only way you can escape them is to open up something innocuous like Microsoft WORD, and resize it so that a blank page covers the ads.

When I listen to AM radio, I now shut the radio off for a few minutes whenever an ad stream begins, then I turn it on to see if the program has resumed. But even here, they’ve gotten crafty, giving us a radio stream for a minute or two, and then back to 5 minutes of ads. The Rush Limbaugh Show on AM 890 in Chicago is like that. You get 5 minutes of ads, then Rush is back, but only for a minute or so, then it’s back to more ads.

I DON’T buy anything that’s presented to me via bullshit Internet or radio ads. Have the Advertising/Marketing melonheads not figured out that we’re all suffering from Advertising Fatigue?????
