I've been visiting this website for a while now, mostly video game related. Recently, they've started to experiment with adds. One was a giant flying thing that you couldn't close because it had a time limit, and interfered with page reading. Then it progressed to Popup adds, with one per page. Now, it's progressed to .com base addressed adds, WITH popup adds. Before going to the main address, your faced with an add page that MUST load(slowly on a dialup modem) before contiuing. Sigh. Everytime this happens, I have to move and find a just as good, but less popular news item page, so I don't have to put up with these adds. But the REAL question is, do adds even WORK anymore? We're so bombarded with them that we've learned to block them out. I mean..look at it this way. A 30 minute show, is reduced to 20 minutes. And networks are now starting to experiment with onscreen adds DURING the show, annoying little animations that take up half the screen and last about seconds promoting shows you alraedy know or don't care about. TNN is the worst offender with the Damn ITrek Live logo taking up the ENTIRE screen as it fades in and out, with the black bar to add to th mess on the bottom. Then we've got movies. You pay your $12's per ticket, and instead of previews, your forced to watch 3 minutes worth of adds. One reason why I wait for the DVD release now and skip the theater alltogether. And now, we've got the internet. Popup Adds, adds on the page itself that you can't block, base addrses adds you can't bypass... When will ENOUGH BE ENOUGH for petes sake? I mean, is there someone we can complain to to at least limit the amount of on screen logos and TV adds that we see? Not to mention network bugs? Or is the entertainmenet medium just going to get worse? I'm just waiting for someone to invent the 'DreamAdd' seen in an ep of Futurama, since with the way things are going, that's probably going to be the next step.
