New lows (or highs?) in advertising

4 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I am shocked to see that the advertising on modaco has gotten even worse than it already was. Now the posts are full of links via intellitxt.com to some "contextual" pages. I have to say that is really disgusting - modifying my posts to make a quick buck. No wonder everybody hear uses an ad blocker, because it is really hard to stand without one. 

 

I for one do not agree to this use of my posts, and I will not post any more, and I will remove my recent posts.

I understand your feelings about advertising but it's not really trying to make a quick buck, its the advertising that pays to run the site, unless you would prefer all members to pay a small subscription such as the options we currently have.

Unfortunately advertising is a necessary evil

I understand that ads are necessary, but there has to be a limit. I cannot stand ads that

  • get in the way
  • lie
  • play sound
  • mix with content

And it seems that modaco had most of those now.
