Banner Ads

Normally I wouldn't post this sort of stuff... but banner ads are everywhere on the interweb now and they often pop up in the most unusual places and almost always out of context. Most often we completely ignore them. This one however came up on my system tonite and it completely stunned me.

Everything about it is so wrong. Everything. Just. Totally. Wrong.

And no, I won't insult you with the link.


  1. Oh go ahead and insult me! :-) Pop ups can be amazing at times!

  2. Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.

  3. I actually don't get any/many spam comments, but that may be largely due to the fact that, 1) I don't think my blog attracts a lot of traffic, and 2) nothing here other than a political comment now and then is especially controversial. Until traffic on a blog or youtube site gets to and over 3000 or so subscribers life stays pretty simple. After that things can get nasty. Personally I will trade simplicity for hassles any day. I would add however that it really is a complete waste of time and energy to engage with negativity, and it maintains the high ground and saves the subscribers and viewers you want to have. Trouble makers and trolls will plow other fields if you ignore them because all they're really after is attention anyway. Starve them.
