    I Am At War With Your Company.

    I avoid you like the plague. As a matter of fact, you are a plague. Popup blocker, AdBlock and Flashblock destroy you on the internet. The remote wipes you clean on TV. When I see your billboard, I think how pathetic you are. When your flyers land in my mailbox, I toss you...

    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...

    If I Hated It Less It Would Be Better For Me

    I hate advertisement so much that it makes me sick. Once I saw some publicitary on TV saying that it was the sustaining structure for the freedom of expression, and I thought I was going to puke. To me, saying that is a lie to the point of being criminal! When I watch all the...

    How To Minimize Online Advertisements

    I use the Firefox browser which has a plugin entitled "Flashblock". It will replace any flash ad on a web page with a simple play button. To load the flash script, you simply press this play button. Of course, all flash content will be blocked so sometimes you'll need...

    I love using Adblock now!

    !! It is a free app and it sets up a VPN on your phone. Now every app you use does not have any ads. No more waiting for YouTube videos!!!

    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...

    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 use adblock not only to skip ads on YT videos,

    but to block the clusterf*ck of malvertising on a ton of sites Screw the Angler kit, man. I also use adblock to stop annoying banner ads. I can't beleive people actually fall for "Your drivers are out of date, click here to update them!!".

    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...

    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...

    No, I don't care about 15 celebrities

    who ruined their faces with plastic surgery, nor about 24 celebs who grew hot, nor about those who got fat, nor about a video which will make me quit my job, nor about a surprising giveback to a mother who lost her son and nor about the 13 sexiest and most naked celebrity...

    I would say that I hate advertisements,

    but I don't even think that truly scratches the surface of how deep my unrelenting fury delves for these abominations. I've had a song stuck in my head, so I decided to go to YouTube to play a video on my phone and listen to it while I work, and yes, I'm aware that was my first...
