    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
