Seriously? An ad to promote paranoia in relationships?

Monday, March 10, 2014

I don't usually see these things on my computer because I'm blocking ads and flash in my browser.. I only saw it because I was browsing with my phone. And this is exactly why I block the ads on my computer. It's not at all what I come to this site for.

  What a weird ad. Why would anyone pay money for this?

  emoticon i am shocked. i have not seen this (how do you block ads? is it a separate software?), but i am truly disgusted to know that this ad, and others that have been mentioned that do not support SP's philosophy, are permitted on this site. i am grateful the site is free, but what about integrity? yikes. do we have to pay for that?

    Actually, I find some of the food ads to be the most obnoxious of all -- in complete contradiction to the (a) valid principles of the site, and (b) at odds with the desires of those looking for valid information about nutrition, fitness and wellness.

Thanks for another interesting and informative post.

BTW, every time I see your before and after pictures (with the BMI numbers), I marvel at the accomplishment.

How have your injuries healed?

    I block too, at least on the devices that let me.
Have learned to not even see ads.

    It's unfortunate, but I realize somebody's gotta pay the bills and have learned to block the ads from my line of sight. There's an awful amount of terribly unhelpful content out there that one has to skim through as best as possible with as much WARRANTED paranoia possible too!

    When I do pay attention to ads, they are usually health related, like for a food item or something. I would hope they could target their audience more,,,

    I just ignore most ads. But yeah... kind of inappropriate.

  Haven't located Mastery of Love yet; however, methinks advice like that would NOT be in it.

    I too ignore ads--literally block them out mentally, even when they scream utter nonsense such as this. I suspect NELLJONES is correct--they are getting worse because we have learned to pay them no attention.

    Like you, I run an ad blocker at home, but I don't have control at work, so the crapola comes through unbidden. For those who argue that ads keep sites free, I counter with the ads are often inappropriate and mostly just make me mad.

    The ad served its purpose, it got your attention. I don't even see ads anymore, and it's because of people like me, like any of us who have mentally blocked stuff we don't care about, that they are getting more obnoxious.
