@Max: " It's got so I don't even notice it -- I just click "Skip" without looking"
The first thing I got before I could read your reply was an ad :)
Luckily I can opt-out and decide not to come back, unless I have to.
Somebody suggested using an ad-blocker. Now I don't mind seeing ads next to the 'content of interest' and sometimes they are worth clicking. But this 'interjecting' of the ad that you have to click out of are a violation of marketing rules: Don't upset the customer. Now this customer is pissed off :) I have seen this 'Linear Technology' ad about 20 (twenty!) times today and my subconsious (evil) mind starts blaming them as well :)
As soon as I click 'Post' I will get served one more :)
Again nothing personal, but unfortunately you are the one in the trenches.
Another serious issue: everytime I click on a link I get force-fed an advertisement. Every click! You can click it away or wait for 20 seconds. I can live with an ad now and then, and they may even be useful, but not every click. What are you (your bosses) thinking?
