I Hate Advertisements

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 102 People

    Very Much So..

    These days, I hate all kinds of advertisements. Billboards, online ads, commercials, all of it. I'm so sick and tired of being bombarded with that crap. I've got up Adblocker and Noscript, I don't watch television, and I don't use any video streaming sites that have advertising...

    They Are So Invasive

    Advertisements have become progressively more invasive and I feel that we should do something about it. Advertisements used to be still images on web pages, then they started taking up more memory with mini-movies. Now they're not only taking up more memory, they're taking up and...

    What a Criminal Waste

    In fact, some ads I like. I like small ads, lists of ordinary people providing extraordinary goods and services, they can be funny, eye-catching, daft, informative. But the huge quantities of human creativity squandered on adding value to cars and tennis shoes is just plain...

    Where Do I Start?

    I reserve particular venom for a TV ad in Britain for the Halifax building society. It is beyond hideuos. It concerns a radio show, where a still wet behind the ears assistant/DJ is trying to extol the virtue of their cash ISA's, when the strain (I use that word...

    It's Not So Bad...

    -except- when you are subjected to the same stupid ads constantly.  If you listen to FM radio in the Washington, DC area that's pretty much what you get :-) Even if the same advertisers could have more than one ad that might work...

    The Ones That Talk

    I've never had a problem with the ones that are just banners on the side of the screen, but I hate those talking ones.  There's two of them like that that I can remember.  They're currently the most annoying ads I've ever seen...I mean heard. The first one is the ad...

    I Am At War With Your Company.
