Pain in the **** advert

Post by graymac on Thu May 31, 2012 4:16 pm

Am I the only one who finds this advert, for a con-trick site, annoying?




It can't be turned off and keeps loudly repeatin "Congratulations, you won!!" every five seconds. The advertiser cannot be contacted to complain to. I tried because I wanted to tell them to eff off. It's completely spoiling the enjoyment of visiting, as far as I'm concerned.

You use Firefox, right? https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/?src=cb-dl-users

I had an ad-block a few months back, can't remember which one, but it was constantly popping up and reminding me to subscribe or something, so it got as annoying as the damn ads. I will have a look at that link and see if its a better one.
The fact remains that this particular advert is more than usually intrusive and annoying and I don't see why the advertiser should get away with it.

That's the problem with the internet's liberty... Some will always abuse it, and I do not see how this can be met. Most probably Unlimitedboard don't have own contracts with the advertisers but use some big service provider, most likely Google Ads, and there's little till no chance Mountain View would react

(and for chrome users there's adblock in the chrome web store)

Ads should return to be simple and text-only. I can't wait for HTML5.
