Re: Advertisements Everywhere
The internet became about advertising a long time ago. People want you to visit their sites, be on their lists, watch their YouTube vids, etc... so they can demonstrate 'traffic' to advertisers, place ads on their sites, and get a few cents a click from advertisers hoping you'll spend money with them.
Annoying? Yes. Surprising? No.
I do appreciate sites that exist purely for information or entertainment with no ancillary income intentions, but I understand that both advertisers and many webmasters want to generate income wherever possible.
