Ads are getting worse
Thursday, October 10, 2013
Just a quick rant about the ads on Spark.
I know that "the advertisers on Sparkpeople help keep us free", and all, but... seriously?
"The shocking tip to destroy belly fat!" (and give you a tan/fake boobs/both?) And every other ad up here now is one of those. We're a diet and nutrition website: can we please skip the "trick" that will save us from ourselves: don't eat bananas? Really? That's your secret? Because -- heaven knows -- that I TOTALLY gained weight eating bananas... not, say, candy, chocolate, and french fries. *beats head against desk*
It's enough to make me haul out the chocolate bar that I've got sitting in my bag and bemoan the fate of humanity (BTW: that chocolate bar is totally a planned indulgence today :) )
