Picture of this advertising insanity...
Having trouble with adobe, so I could not just upload the normal picture I guess... But anyway, this is disgusting.
I mean, the ads on ATS have been outta hand before, but not to this extent. Yeah, I can get over the fact that they are everywhere on the site and
that SO has really no control over it, but this... this takes the cake. Right as I was about to check out that Obama thread in the background a huge
pink banner comes strolling up to my face to advertise some lame ass show on tv.
I promise that I will not just boycott that channel anymore but the whole network... If you are that desperate for people to tune into your show then
it must suck anyway.
I am tired of the internet taking over the people. Remember the day when it was switched around? You could get away from it all by surfing the web?
Now look it's one big ad machine. When I can't even go to youtube without a f****** corporate sticker FORCING (well ok I have the choice to not go
to youtube, but figuratively forcing) me to sit there and watch an ad... well I don't know but I do know that my boiling point has been reached and I
am soon to reach my vaporing point.
Surely I mustn't be the only one. ATS: we cannot just "boycott" the internet. These days it is the only hope for finding truth, though it is still
muddled with corporatacracy, lays here in places like ATS. But what should we do? Just letting it happen preludes even worse things to come...
(P.S., not to get political here but how lame is this: I did a search on Ron Paul a few days ago during the primaries before Washington. That day, the
"featured ads" on Google came up to be Mitt Romney. COME ON, WTF)
