I use Adblock Plus, so most of the time I don't see any ads, on web pages.

But they do pop up, pop under, or auto run (those are the worst,) and they are just plain annoying!

Can anyone write a blocker that can 'accept' the ads but simply not show them to deal with sites that go "Whaa.. you got ad blocker.. I'm going to be a total bitch and hide everything with some massive pop-up now"

I've had a site I had paid subscriptions with for over a decade that I visited most every day switch to ad supported with freaking adblock-blockers. What's worse the actual ads were absolutely intolerable, loud, and large. Sometimes all you can do it go somewhere else and tell them you did; as if they cared. How the hell does anyone make money advertising a product in a way no one will want to see. Do most people actually see ads pop up in the middle of their screen and say "gee, that looks interesting?" instead of being annoyed?

There is no escape. In the future ads will be the dominate form of life on earth.

Then just use the adblocker to block the adblocking popup. If that doesn't work, then great, the site has convinced you to go elsewhere!

Side note, get one of those bookmarklets that kills sticky headers. Asshole designers are placing their screen obstructing menus and notifications everywhere these days.



The most annoying ones, no matter where we see them, TV, Internet, whatever, are the ones for prescription drugs.

I've never understood that. I don't understand how its legal to be like "HEY buy THIS new drug, we're paying your doctor substidies to prescribe it so what do you have to lose!? warning may cause anal bleeding, kidney failure, hair loss, sudden death, heart attacks, brain cancer, blindness, loss of sensation, murderous urges, sleep walking, development of multiple personalities, testicular cancer, infertility, birth defects, do not take while breast feeding or while in contact with other living creatures "

>>3508515 Drug companies started doing it in the 1980s because there was no laws against it claiming a kind of 'First Amendment' issue but the FDA quickly realized it was a problem and required they issue the same type of warnings used in print ads [i.e. far too much shit to be practical in a TV ad]

Then in the mid 1990s drug companies realized if they didn't actually make any claims about a drug they could get away with TV ads -- hence the era of super vague and confusing ads that just had people doing things like holding hands and golfing on the beach with a VO saying "It's time -- ask your doctor about Lubagynamin" (or whatever they were peddling)

Eventually after paying enough congressmen drug companies were able to get FDA regulations somewhat relaxed and you get the ads we see today.



It would be different if the ads were watchable, like that "Symbiocore" (or whatever it is called,) the ad with the anthro wolves.
(Hey, that doctor is hot!)

But most are just happy, beautiful imagery, pretty much really annoying and really bullshit.


In other countries ads for prescription medicine are not allowed.
Crazy right?


Well, there are 3 others -

New Zealand, Brazil, and Hong Kong. Every other country bars the practice.


Oh, and Brazil only allows it for over-the-counter medications.



Reminds me on how fucking loaded american websites are. No seriously. Thanks to the ruling of the european union... Some sites asks you to accept cookies before sending you all their shit trackers they have.

Turns out that by denying these cookies or ignoring them.. the websites weight like.. 500kb.. but once you accept and let the bullshit load. It could get as bad as 10Mb per page.
Including javascript documents weighing Mb.
