Sounds like you were chatting with a robot, they obviously didn't understand what you meant. Call them and explain courteously what you're trying to say. Ask them if there's anyway to stop the ads, as you pay for the service. If not, switch providers.

Probly was a robot but it gave me a unsuscribe email
That's what I wanted

And if u call them all there reps deny they have any capability of injecting java aredy tried that

Hopefully the email works

I'd love to get a new isp but I need a good ping

The unsubscribe email will only unsubscribe you from email communications from them, not ads.

Don't know about your issue, but I do use Cox, and their service is typically very good. I suspect you did get a bot or something, and would recommend calling to talk to an actual person.

I know I don't see anything like that on my internet service, though I don't use it for the cell phone. Only ads I ever see are those various sites use.

many of them are 3rd party agreements through your browser. they try to say its to better service your needs as a target demoghraphic to relay ads that interest you... personally ive yet to say thanks ads you knew just what my lil consumer ass knew i needed «cleek».

not only does being auto opted into the stream target you for ads based on browsing habits, but when tied into the browser, so will your search results become aligned with those habits. not useful for myself as when i do a search I want all unbiased information on the topic as possible to get a clear picture of it... not search results catered to a personal bias from previous searches.

theres many ways to avoid these... many you have to opt out of over and over again. it would be nice if opted out was default and opting in was what took the effort... but thats not the case, its unscrupolous marketing on the level of burger king upselling a slice of cheese knowing more people want cheese than not you dont see the 40 cent slice of cheese when asking for it nor on the board... but you and te poor worker having to say with cheese? 7000 times more a shift than they should need to says it all about such practices.

I used to work for Cox as a Field Technician and a Customer Support Rep (phones). I can tell you that unfortunately she would not have the slightest bit of information as to why Cox would be injecting ads. I would most certainly take this up to a higher level and sending a letter into the marketing department at the corporate level.
