Yes, save the children, take away those annoying ads.

Sounds to me like you're advertising Firefox, Adblock Plus, and Filterset G Update.

Since I run all three, the answer must be YES!

/also Kubuntu FTW.

God I love this shiat. KDE, not so much, but at least we gets a choice.

Hell yeah, I too am not a fan of KDE, but they do have some cool apps such as k3b, so always have KDE libs installed.

For me KDE was too much like windows, and thus I wanted a radical change (4 years ago now) and went with GNOME.

This is it. I prefer Gnome's simplicity and streamlinedness (is that a word?) The weird thing is that my wife, who's not a huge geek and a lifelong Winders user also loves it to bits. And all the Compiz flashiness, it's odd, if this were Windows it'd all be switched off, but A: it doesn't add a huge overhead to my machine, and B: I can set it up exactly as I want it, not "You have it like this, or off".

Ah well, there it is. Yeah, back on subject. Adverts. Terrible I guess. ADblock, wicked.

Sometimes I am shocked when referring someone who uses IE to a website and they complain about ads and flashy things, as for years I am happily oblivious to such annoyances.

I know the feeling. I find it funny that the advertisers get so het up about Adblock, aside from all the other reasons it's daft to think that the kind of person who would install it would otherwise click on one of their stupid banners or whatever. It's as important to the ad-men for people to see the damn things as it is to get an actual click. Ridiculous model.

And I don't have a credit card, which basically excludes me from being able to buy anything off the internet. Not that I would anyway....especially not from some company that insists on blinding me with flashing or fleshlight ads.

Screw the ad-men, I pay for my bandwidth, if they want me to view their crap, pay me. Of course no amount of money would get me to look at flashcrap anyway.

Children should not be visiting Ebaumsworld. For that matter, nobody should be visiting Ebaumsworld.

Is a fleshlight really only 2.87? I might need to pick one of those up then...
 
2007-12-07 11:38:57 AM  
Anyone ever actually use one? Umm....how is it??

So? I can't watch an hour of TV without seeing commercials that I find revolting.

1. Anything lately from Burger King.
2. Anything involving "feminine deodorant"
3. The one with the grandparents getting ready for sex when the kids and grandkids show up and ruin it.
4. ANYTHING where a lonely child is encouraged to buy friends by treating the other kids to fast food.
5. The Gatorade commercials where athletes sweat gatorade.

And on and on. So I don't give a shiat about what your precious snowflakes see on the Internet.
