Okay, I'll be the nut here -
I don't mind advertising. Some of the things they use (extra loud volume, the stereotypes, etc) I don't like. But overall I don't mind ads. I kind of like them.
It's neat to break down why one ad is effective and another is not. Some are really cool and creative (Coke has lots of cool ads). In print ads it's fun to pour over them for what's been photoshopped. Comparing foreign ads to American ones. And sometimes the trailers are the best part of a movie.
Now I don't have network TV or cable TV (the one has no reception here and I'm not paying $50 a month for TV when there are videogames to buy). So I'm not quite as inundated with ads as I might otherwise be. Maybe that's why I don't mind.
I just have a hard time getting worked up over something that's been a nearly daily part of life for nearly 3000 years. (Roman copywriters could easily make the transition to modern times).
And thank you for coming here to "advert" our attention to your blog post.
