Ads you hate!

I'm not a big fan of ads in general, but the ones I've been getting on here lately irk me to my core. The worst of them? "Date Russian women!"

Setting aside that this is a pop up that just doesn't want to go away, I'm a married woman; I don't need a foreign girlfriend. Secondly, the whole mail order bride thing is problematic. Admittedly, I'm the direct descendent of an Irish mail order bride and a man who would use such an option to find a hardy-stock, cotton-picking wife, but that was another century and another time. These days, essentially buying women who want a better life leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Do you see any ads on here that particularly bother you?

I hate those that may harm or slow down my PC. Other than that I just ignore them.

I don't pay attention to the ads on the pages when I am on my PC, I am pretty good at tuning them out. What I do find annoying is the pop-up ad that shows up on my phone the EZmob runs, it is a couple different types of ads for dating and cam sites :P

Only thing irritating me is my browser. I think I'd better restart this computer.

I donĀ“t pay much attention except for the really irritating ones that jump about and flash. Those drive me up the wall.

I guess the dating Pinay site... I hate it because it really lessen the value of Filipino women, I hate people who indulged themselves in this kind of life for easy money. Life is hard to achieve but when we got to the right process the way God put His standard we can never be happier and we will never regrets that we took the hardest but sure path. God bless.

The EZmob one on my phone is the one I was thinking of! It's just too obtrusive.

MsBiz wrote on February 18, 2015, 9:32 AM

Exactly! I can't think of a worse way to cheapen the sacred bond between a man and a woman (or demean a woman's worth) than to essentially advertise women like commodities. I can't imagine how that would make anyone happy in the long run. God bless and have a great day!

Have gotten pretty good at ignoring them, but the dating ones are annoying.

I hate popup ads and those video ads that auto play especially if it's not muted. I usually just ignore the rest of the ads.

The one for the travel? health? company that has the aerial video of the Statue of Liberty annoys me because it makes my machine run like a dog. Auto start ads generally annoy me for the same reason, and in any case I quite often have music playing so an ad on top of that just ruins everything.

I haven't gotten the Statue of Liberty one yet. I did get a Captcha for "personal lubricant" today, though. What kind of person do they think I am?!

WordChazer wrote on February 20, 2015, 2:30 PM

I had a phase where the Captcha would tell me I had input an incorrect answer and then lose my post (didn't even come back on Restore Cache either). Most annoying. Now if it starts doing that I have my posts in Word so I can keep trying until it posts successfully.

What bothers me are ads which seem to me are porn and showing intestines and other things that suck! :)
