At first I was horrified, then my interal ad-blocker jumped in and I ignored them. It's not much of a problem.


And that SugarDaddie.com: Dating for Attractive and Succcessful People seems right up my street....

I like the RPG thing in the ads. Other than that, some ads actually heighten public awareness, like the environmentalist one. :)

Ya, sometimes I'll click them just to support the site I'm visiting.

I don't remember the last time I ever actually clicked an ad.

Also, we shouldn't go on a mass clicking spree because that could get Steve in trouble for clickthrough fraud. I've seen it happen.

Never hurts to click every now and then especially when if the product interests you.  Personally I'd love to see more gaming related ads though. Just to keep with content of the site plus I might be more inclined to click. The ads seriously don't bother me unless I see something I really despise such as those ring tone one or something. Also I hope we don't end up with those dodgy mini game ads you know the ones get the ball in the hoop 5 times before time runs out and it's filled with distracting animations and such. I make a point not to click those because I hate to encourage them.

Maybe if we constantly wrote a single product that none of us are interested in, we could sway the Ads (Because, correct me if I'm wrong, but certian advertisments 'direct' themselves by keywords; Gaming ads to gaming websites; Ringtone advertisements to teenage-heavy sites...) into advertising something none of us want, freeing us from our incessant power.

Thus we bring the Capitalist Oppressor to his knees!

EDIT: Spelling.

Hee-hee.  We talked so much in this topic that we've started getting meta-banner ads.

One ad said "Free Bom Chicka Bow Bow".
A part of me died at that. :(
:O
Also, Gunner is one of the children.
It's true.
