... ... I am frankly quite tired of the invasiveness and rudeness (please pardon these coined words I'm using) that advertisers impose, rudely impose, on folks using the internet. It doesn't seem to matter where you go online, you are inundated with winking and blinking, drifting and sliding, flashing and dashing advertisements massively overtaking the entire screen.
The little "peep-hole" through which internet users are allowed to actually view the information for which they actually accessed the website is less than 1/4th of the screen.
Go back to kindergarten! Learn the rules! You do not "break in line." You do not "hit" one another.Yes, the internet advertisement industry needs to learn that slapping the website readers in the face with this plethora of ads is tantamount to "breaking in line" and "hitting" the readers in the face.
Have you ever visiting a site and then fumbled around looking for that choice bit of information that drew you there in the first place and finally finding it? Then as you begin to read an entirely new ad jumps in right on top of that which you are reading? I have! Many times!
Folks, that is liken to Dad sitting in his overstuffed chair after a hard day at work and he is reading his newspaper. A football is tossed across the room (yep, a no-no). The ball lands smack-dab in the middle of Dad's newspaper. Get the picture? Yep! Dad is not happy.
And I am not happy. I do not like it. I think the purveyors of advertising need to get their act together and learn the gentle art of manners and "waiting your turn." Yes, advertise. Put it on the side bar (no flashing and taking up excessive bandwidth, though). Even put a banner at the top, if you must. But LEAVE THE REST OF THE SCREEN ALONE!
