This topic is all about posting bad ads that you see all over the internet.
One really annoying add is from Tribalfusion,I've seen it all over the web,especially on websites that use Flash.
it looks like a window from Windows Xp Pro.It says "you have won our hourly prize,click here to claim it,If you click on it it'll take you to tribalfusion.com where it says that you've won $1200.Yeah right
I'll try to get a picture of the ad further on.
Feel free to post you're annoying ads on this topic.

Irritating Advertisements on the Internet.

Please tell us about those Ads that really bother you.
Be descriptive in telling us what bothers you about these Ads.
But, please limit direct quotes from the Ads also.

Do not include pictures or hot link URL's to such in this thread.
(We'll only have to edit those out as we choose not to list them on the BC.)
The only easy day was yesterday.

The dating site ads are especially annoying. Find your match today, what a load.
Also the ones that say click here, you won a free XBox elite.

I think most of the ads are hilairious, because someone had to think of them. I mean, what was goin' on in their brain?

But yeah, dating advertisements are stupid, especially the ones where they track your IP address, and say what city they're in. Dumb.

Anyone seen the one with a really scary monster as a picture and tells you not to click there.
That one is weird. I've been told its a joke toolbar or something.

That is about the only reason I don't have my speakers on at home anymore... the continual people running upstairs to ask what that noise was is pretty annoying.

EDIT: This isn't worth starting a thread about but I can't find the SupportPlus Technologies website. Whenever I google this, all that comes up is SupportPlus ergonomics or something. Can someone help me find it?

Ryan 3000 and others--I never see an ad unless I want to. Which is almost never. I have never heard an audio ad.
I use Firefox browser with NoScript, Adblock and flashblock extensions. I block Third party cookies from installing in IE and Firefox.

I was gonna say the same thing....

What ads? :thumbsup:


Firefox with Ad-Block makes the Internet SO MUCH MORE enjoyable. I forgot that ads even exist after a while.
