They both have annoying, moving, spining, jumping, singing, spitting, yelling ads that annoy me and give me a bad impression of the company the ad is for (are you listening advertisers?!).
I like, TrekBBS, and I want to support it — but not by being annoyed.
Now, you’d think the advertising network, UGO, would have gotten the message.
Let’s see: X Page views with Y annoying ad placements, where X < Y means people are disabling your annoying ads.
Not the text ads, not the non-annoying banners, just the moving, spinning, coma-inducing, swirling, etc. ads.
What should we do? Listen to our user’s demands for tasteful, relevent ads, or… wait, I’ve got it, try and find a way around the browser’s blocks.
By jove, that’s it! Our users must really want annoying ads, and those malicious browser makers are bent on ruining us… yes, that’s it.
