Annoying advertisements

What's with all the advertisements???

I sit down to browse the web and I can't read the news for all the ads that are constantly popping up. We pay for the service why do I have to watch a thousand ads before I can see a news/entertainment vid? If I'm reading something, I keep getting an ad in my view. I had rather skip the entire article than to constantly be annoyed or distracted. BTW, I never buy anything that is pushed on me.

It's called direct-marketing... or by other words, HOSTAGE MARKETING.....

 

You can try to enable an add-on into your broswer to stop annopying advertisements....  I use ad-blocker in CHROME and it works wonderfully across all media websites...

Re: Annoying advertisements

Ray, thank you. I'll certainly give it a try. Who has time to sit through a 30 second commerical every time you're interested in seeing a vid. Especially, when it's showed over and over and over. I will go out of my way to never buy from these people.
