    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
