As most of you already know, I do not like shitty ads, spammy links and popup windows including the words "download", "free" etc. or some popup window asking you to "Clean your Mac" (!) or a special shitty offer only for you (!) etc.
These are all trash as you can guess and I don't think anyone likes them. Besides, I also do not like real ads on a page. From 2007 till now, never had any on my website/forum.
When I need something, I search for it and that's more than enough with the database on the internet that our species has already built.
Anyway, this post came out after I remember the quote as I saw it on some page.
Here it is:
Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need.
