Revealed: The naughty tricks used by web ads to bypass blockers


Dear Guy That Makes This Stuff,

If the waiter brought you a steak with a steaming pile of shit on the side, would you smile and eat it all?

Please take a step back, look rationally at what you are pushing and how, and think about "If I do this this way, will it piss off the viewer and actually create negative impression of what I am advertising?" Ads in periodicals work because they do not leap off the page, sing and shout, or attempt to give you rabies.

Have you no decency? (Clean) up your game.

An Engineer
