    Who here is pissed off by the way normal, "clean" websites have been inundated with adverts, and stupid links that no one ever clicks on.
    I mean like Facebook, it used to be so clean, and user friendly, now there are a million different adverts across the top, the sides, and in groups, and friends' pages. Not to mention all the stupid "What kind of disease/poo/animal/country are you??" quizzes, which take up lots of space on my homepage.
    Also, Youtube, with the annoying ads that pop up ON THE VIDEO when you're trying to watch it, and the pop ups that appear everywhere.

    I mean, I know they make their money from advertising, but surely they could do it in a less annoying way.

    Soon sites ike Wikipedia will be swarmed with dirty adverts which no one cares about.
    It angers me.

    The thought of that terrifies me somewhat.

    FB ads are not that bad, as long as they're relevant. I've found being recommended some on-line stores related to my statuses (sp?) that I actually liked (clothes/imported sodas). There's nothing worse than an ad that you do not relate to but yet are forced to watch it :rolleyes:

    So, yeah - the ads don't bother me that much, as long as they're not forcing themselves on me (i.e. are displayed around the screen and I don't have to close an ad to be allowed to progress on the site) and they're relevant to my personal preferences :yep:
