Default Re: Advertisements Everywhere

I was thinking about this recently. Not so much being bothered by ads ... for me, ignoring them and closing them down are second nature.

I was thinking that, if I'm so immune to advertising's "charms" then I wonder how many others are also oblivious. If enough internet users are as oblivious as I am then this advertising model - that represents billions and billions of dollars - would be a massive bubble waiting to burst.

I suspect that, as a long term experienced web user who started before the advertising boom, I may be less responsive than most. I hope so, anyway. I love the way advertising heps to fund so much cool free stuff. If the bubble burst it would be ugly so, every now and then, I'll click an ad to keep 'em sweet :)
